"What We're Up To" isn't the most scintillating headline, but when you're Team Fortress 2, you don't really need to assault people with catchy buzzwords and overly colorful copy. (You have lots and lots of guns to assault people with.) Instead, Valve takes the subdued approach with its most recent progress update, laying out its ambitious plans for the remainder of 2015.
There's a major update in the works, which will include new maps, new cosmetics, a new campaign (probably in the style of the recent Gun Mettle campaign), and the hotly anticipated competitive matchmaking. Mannpower Mode, introduced in December, is also expected to move out of beta soon.
With all that planned, however, one yearly TF2 tradition had to bite the dust. Well, not completely... Valve won't be producing a new Halloween map or game mode this year, instead opting to turn the Halloween decorations over to the fans. All six previous Halloween special events will be activated, and the best content from the Steam Workshop will also be available. If you still want to get into the festive spirit, you can do so by submitting content to the Workshop with the tag "Halloween" before Oct. 18.
As an added bonus, all new Halloween-themed items will be usable year-round, not just during the Halloween season and full moons. Well, fang you very much, Valve.
