After years of conflict, robots are bringing the TF2 mercs together. A new comic series explains that Blutarch and Redmond Mann’s brother Grey has come from the shadows to take over Mann Co, and Saxton Hale has hired the TF2 mercs to save the day from Grey’s robotic henchmen.
The game mode seems to be a six player hoard mode. So far, a list of robot types has been released, with updates coming tomorrow and Wednesday when the update drops. Valve has also released a trailer for the mode.
In other, maybe related TF2 news, a plush version of the Medic’s bird Archimedes was put up then removed from the Valve Store. He may have something to do with the update. It comes with an item code, so the bird may be a cosmetic item in game on Wednesday.
