Gamers, check this out! Valve Software on Thursday revealed that its popular online shooter Team Fortress 2 is adopting the “free-to-play” business model for gamers on the PC, and will be supported solely by virtual item sales. It’s the first time that Valve has applied the business model to one of its own internally-developed games. Team Fortress 2 launched on PCs and consoles in 2007 as part of The Orange Box compilation. Players who bought Team Fortress 2 (digitally or at retail) prior to the “Uber Update,” released today, will have a “premium account.” These accounts will give players access to “a few extra features, including access to rare and cosmetic items through random item drops, the ability to store more items in your backpack, and more powerful trading and crafting abilities,” according to Valve. More details on the update can be seen at the official free-to-play FAQ.
