Team Fortress 2's newest update is all community made

by John Callaham

Valve has released a ton of free content for Team Fortress 2 ever since the multiplayer shooter was first launched in 2007. This week, the latest free update, Robotic Boogaloo, was launched that turned out to be the first such pack that was made completely by Team Fortress 2 community members.

The Team Fortress website has the details on Robotic Boogaloo, which it said had 57 new in-game items, mostly of the hat variety. Not only that, but Valve added that the community members also made " ... the update hub website, the animated short, the comic, even the splash images in the Steam store."

Access to the new items can be bought by using the in-game Mann Co Store to purchase keys than then open the RoboCrates containing the update's contents. All of the Robotic Boogaloo creators will share in the revenues from those RoboCrates keys, in another first for the Team Fortress 2 community.

Valve says that even though this latest TF2 update was made by people outside of Valve, it will still be producing its own content for the game, saying, "As far as we’re concerned, there's plenty of room for both to happily co-exist. We're in uncharted territory here, and it's exciting to be exploring it with you."
