Team Fortress 2 Gets A New Game Mode

Illustration for article titled Team Fortress 2 Gets A New Game Mode

Valve's Team Fortress 2 got a little more interesting today, with the addition of a new game mode called "Highlander". Yeah, you can see where this is going.

With the classic 1986 film still on the developer's minds following the recent Demoman update, Highlander mode sees two teams of nine square off, with only one player on each team able to represent a class. So one Soldier, one Sniper, one Heavy, etc.

I love this, as when played it'll force people to not only work as a true team, but also hone their skills on unfamiliar classes.

though rare, i have played on servers that had this rule set. i'm sure Valve's implementation will be way more streamlined. nevertheless, i'm quite glad to see it finally done. i get tired of seeing an army of scouts/soldiers/heavies or a team with too many snipers sitting back blissfully unawares of the true objective at hand as they try to rack up kills.
