Mann versus Machine revealed!
By Jess Colwill on August 14, 2012 at 4:12 pm
All the rumours were true! Universally-revered Valve game Team Fortress 2 is adding a new mode of gameplay, wherein you fight ROBOTS! It is, at its bare bones, more like Left 4 Dead or Monday Night Combat than traditional Team Fortress, with six players in co-op mode fighting an innumerable horde of robo-bots.
Today is Day One of the big reveal, so at the moment all we know about are the robots. Seems as though there will be hordes of regular robots with standard-issue weapons, and a handful of special robots that have more specialised functions, such as the ‘Minor League Scout’ who will stun you with his lightning fast baseballs, or the ‘Quick Fix Medic’, who will heal your enemies up quickly, but is unable to uber. There will also be giant robots to rough you up, and sentry killer bots that are essentially walking bombs. The aim will be to stop the robots from planting bombs in Mann Co.’s facilities, naturally.
Check out over here for more details, and keep an eye on it tomorrow for the next stage of the reveal.
