Valve, creators of bestselling game franchises (such as Half-Life, Portal, Left 4 Dead, and Counter-Strike) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), announced that after four years and over 200 updates, its popular and critically-acclaimed online action game Team Fortress 2 (TF2) is now Free To Play (F2P). The F2P announcement comes as part of the "Über Update". Released today, it is the largest content pack delivered to TF2 since it shipped in 2007.

New players interested in experiencing what PC Gamer calls "the most fun you can have online" will have access to training and offline practice modes, so they can hone their skills before jumping into the ever-expanding TF2 universe. To celebrate the launch of the Über Update, Valve has released "Meet the Medic," the latest in its series of TF2 animated shorts.

TF2 is now Free to Play for PC & Mac players via Steam. For more information on Free to Play, please visit http://www.teamfortress.com/freetoplay

Thats not bad that you bought it because free members have some restrictions I don't know all but know 2 thing- F2P members have "[F2P]" before the nick+ F2P members have only 50 inventory places when people who bought it have 300 places :D

A better title for this post would be "Team Fortress 2 now Free to Download". Other than the initial price for the game, by itself or in the popular "Orange Box", there never was a subscription fee to play Team Fortress 2. Therefore this game has *always* been free to play....

Meh, I bought it a year ago for 6 bucks and it was no big thrill. Gameplay was extremely basic and simple and the classes were far to linear.

If you bought the game, you won't have restrictions, so stop complaining. It will be better than before.
