After several months of silence following the Smissmas event in December 2013, the Team Fortress 2 blog has been updated with a new post outlining a number of upcoming changes set to arrive sometime in the future.
The first major reveal includes a preview of an upcoming "Moonbase" map which features "a whole bunch of interesting new gameplay", something the team is "pretty excited about". The post also provides a look at a piece of concept art for the map, showing how the Moonbase may look once complete.
Additionally, the post has also revealed that community contributors will soon be able to upload their own custom taunts to the Steam Workshop. The team has confirmed they are currently working on animating some brand new taunts, which will likely be added to the game around the same time as the aforementioned Steam Workshop support.
