Team Fortress 2 breaks its own activity record after going through the biggest news drought in its history

The hero shooter has been around since 2008 and is now going strong after reducing intrusive bots.

Within the bottomless pit of memes that is Team Fortress 2 , one of the most resonant among fans is that the wait between patches and news for Valve’s hero shooter is eternal. But last week came an update that has turned everything upside down, taking the game originally released in 2008 to a new peak of activity .

 

TF2 ends its biggest patch drought in its history with 151,253 concurrent players on June 25, according to SteamDB. The same source points to very similar peaks for the day after, so we will have to be attentive to see how long this unusual wave of interest lasts. The most curious thing of all is that for practical purposes, the new patch supposes one of lime for another of sand.

According to the official patch notes , the game introduces with this version the 2021 summer cosmetic box with 24 community items, as well as minor adjustments to the option to kick players and stability improvements. It is also the solution to the plague of bots that flood the games, but unfortunately apart from all these good things it also causes compatibility problems with the much loved mods.

 

The previous peak of activity for Team Fortress 2 dates back to December 2020, which means that for more years that pass, the community does not allow the game to die . Whether it’s the memes, the hat-hunt, or the action, the game survived the launch of Overwatch, its closest competitor , and in the not too distant future will have to do the same with its sequel.
