Time to scream. More than when a Pyro is after you, that is.
Team Fortress 2 has received a Halloween event this year again, over 9 years since its release. Titled Scream Fortress VIII, the event involves three new community-made maps: Brimstone, Pit of Death, and Maple Ridge Event. There’s also two new taunts available, and twenty-one new items.
In addition, all previous Scream Fortress maps will now be available for play, and old contracts will be available as well. There’s new contracts included in the update as well, don’t worry about that.
Apart from all the new content, there will be a “Taunt Unusualifier” added to the game, available via a Creepy Crawly Case. Unusual effects are quite in vogue, as all unusual cosmetic items unboxed by players during the event will get a Halloween 2016 unusual effect. The chances of getting an unusual cosmetic will be doubled across all cases, including old ones.
Scream Fortress VIII is now live on the PC version of Team Fortress 2, which is free-to-play on Steam.
