Playing a Medic in Team Fortress 2‘s delightful Mann vs. Machine mode is about to get more excellent, with Valve revealing that the upcoming Two Cities update will bring a host of new surgical toys tools.

Once the update drops, MVM medics will have access to a reanimator tool for bringing dead team mates back to life, new Mad Milk syringes which can be shot out, and a new upgradeable shield that “repels projectiles while electrocuting robots”. Excellent.

Also revealed as part of the update is the “vaguely European” town of Rottenburg, the second of the two new MVM maps after Mannhattan, which was shown off yesterday.

Soldiers aren’t forgotten either, with a new ‘Rocket Specialist’ upgrade, which allows Sollies to shoot faster rockets which stun if they don’t kill, and which increases splash damage to surrounding enemies if you score a direct hit. Wicked.
