TF2's Meet the Pyro is Coming. In 2012.

Team Fortress 2 is a pretty great game, but the best thing about it are Valve's marketing shorts, which introduce each character with the kind of animated quality you'd expect from a Pixar flick.


So far we've met, well, everybody. Everybody except the mysterious Pyro. But we'll meet him/her soon enough, with Valve promising today that the final "Meet the" short will be out this year, and it'll be "Meet the Pyro".

Here's Valve's release:

The Last "Meet the Team" Short

That title probably deserved an exclamation mark, but we over-estimated how many we had and now we're out. This year, the lovable, indecipherable Pyro finally gets some time in the spotlight. There will be blood. And not like in the movie There Will Be Blood, either, where there was only blood at the end, and not even very much of it. Ours has lots of blood pretty much all the way through. If the butterscotch mint-sucking old mummies who pick the Academy Awards thought Look Out, There Might Be a Little Blood was great, wait'll they see how many gallons we managed to cram into our movie. They're going to have to melt down Fort Knox to make all the Oscars we're going to win.

Cobaltios - On the Verge of Departure

Wouldn't it be funny if Valve trolled us all and had the whole thing with the Pyro's mask on the entire time?

No, probably not, but I can definitely imagine Valve pulling something like this on it's fans.
