Coming in 2014 from Mode 7 (makers of Frozen Synapse), Frozen Endzone will be the premiere tactical future sports game! From what is seen in the trailer, the game will utilize simultaneous moves by both players which was the essence of Frozen Synapse tactics.

Valve is putting Team Fortress 2 for free-play all week long to celebrate the release of the biggest, most ambitious update in the history of Team Fortress 2.

Also the website for the game got a revamp. Lets see what team got to say about the upcoming update:

We’ve got a lot to announce as we get closer to the update’s release this Thursday, June 23rd. We’ve been holding one of the surprises pretty close to the vest for months now. We don’t want to ruin it, but we’ll give you four clues to get you guessing:

    1.) It IS a “Meet the” short.
    2.) It involves ONE of the two remaining classes.
    3.) It’s NOT the Pyro.
    4.) It’s the MEDIC.

Let the speculation begin! While you’re puzzling that out, why not click over to the first of our class pack announcements: Mobster Monday. To make sure everything was as accurate as possible, we went deep undercover at the most Italian place we could find, The Olive Garden. We asked the Mafia about a million questions, none of which they understood, because our mouths were full of all the free breadsticks the Mafia gives you when you visit them (they’re not such bad guys).

All that hanging out with mob guys must have rubbed off on us, because we’ve decided to celebrate the Über Update by giving you an offer you can’t (or at least shouldn’t) refuse–an unprecedented WEEK-LONG FREE WEEKEND of Team Fortress 2, starting right now!

The popular ‘Last Stand’ co-operative mode from Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 2 will be made available as a stand-alone downloadable title tomorrow. It will be available as a download for 10$ on Steam.

We saw this as a unique opportunity to introduce new players to the Dawn of War franchise as well as expanding the player base for the already popular Last Stand mode.

TF2Maps.net presented us a new pack called: SWAMP! There are numerous assets included in download, which will help you build cool muddy swamp maps. Alongside the assets there are 4 maps included.

You can download and find all the information about the pack on the official TF2Maps.net Swamp page.

The second annual Halloween special is upon us. For the first time, there is a NPC mini-boss in Team Fortress 2. In the new map  – Mann Manor,  The Horseless Headless Horsemann spares no one. Mann Manor is a spooky “attack/defend map littered with exploding pumpkins”, created by Art Pass Contest winners, Tim Johnson and Alex Kreeger.

It’s clearly going to be an interesting inclusion, what with that old dead Mr Mann causing trouble in a way TF2 hasn’t seen before. New achievements, new hats, new taunt…..its hard to count it all.

The event will last from 27th October until 8th November. You can find more information on official TF2 Scream Fortress update page.
