This is not a drill. I repeat. This is NOT a drill. Mann Co. is under attack. The robots have arrived. RED and BLU have formed an alliance to fight back against the Gray Horde. The Mann Vs Machine update has finally arrived. Launching August 15th, Team Fortress 2 is set to receive its biggest update ever. Day 1 of the update has revealed a massive wealth of new content in the form of a new map, an all new trailer, a brand new gamemode, a brand new comic as well as a whole set of info on the robot horde themselves and their special abilities. From what we can tell so far, the Mann vs Machine update focuses around defending a Mann Co. building from bomb attacks by the Gray Mann created robot horde. The robots, armed with their own variants of classic TF2 weapons, will attempt to kill the player and their team while a "Bomb Carrier" attempts to drop a large bomb into a Mann Co. bombhole. Also mentioned are the inclusion of the long rumored 'Giant Robots', which we believe will appear as boss waves, while the bottom of the main update page also references something...even bigger. Taken from information and hints in the trailer and update pages, it sounds like Mann vs Machine gamemodes will focus on a small focused team of six players, with all classes being selectable. One of the update descriptions also describes how players will receive "incredible loot" for surviving all the waves in "any of a variety of missions". The 'loot' has yet to be identified, but we can imagine it being pretty amazing. There is simply too much to detail properly here, so why not go check out the awesome trailer and read all about it for yourself on the official TF2 site. And if you've already watched the trailer, why not go watch it again? It's just that good.
