So after much speculation and many delays the newest Team Fortress 2 update, Invasion, is finally here. The update features 4 new maps (including a new gametype on one of them) 4 new weapons and a whole bunch of new cosmetics. As you would expect all the new items and maps are alien themed with some of the Cosmetics looking absolutely amazing.
The new gametype introduced is called Player Destruction. The idea is that you have to collect beer on the map by killing players and delivering it to a UFO that flies overhead. Once you reach the number required the UFO will fly out of control into the Mothership and blow up. Yes, we really just beat the aliens with Budweiser. It’s pretty fun especially considering one member of the team becomes the team leader who dispenses ammo and health on the fly. In terms of the updates substance however it’s a bit lackluster. There could be loads more cosmetics as seen in the steam page for submissions and in order to gain access to the new weapons and cosmetics you have to buy an Invasion Pass. This pass will make item crates drop which in turn you have to pay to open! Buying something to have the opportunity to pay more money seems a bit… dodgy to me.
Anyway that’s just my two cents. What do you all think of the new Invasion Update? Let me know in the comments below! That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
