Get Ready for ‘Pyromania’ in ‘Team Fortress 2′

As Valve prepares to release their final Meet the Team short for Team Fortress 2 on Wednesday, “Meet the Pyro,” they’re unleashing a set of updates to the free-to-play shooter featuring all-new content. Dubbed “Pyromania,” the first update went live yesterday.

More details about Doomsday, the latest TF2 update after the jump.

Doomsday is an all-new map for Team Fortress 2 which also includes a new game mode. That new mode involves a suitcase with a nuke that one team will have to get to a rocket before it launches. I’ll let Valve explain it in their own quirky way:

Doomsday pits BLU against RED, with only one team getting the honor of transporting a suitcase nuke full of recalled Mann Co. Australium to American monkeynaut Poopy Joe’s rocket, so he can blast off and hunt down Soviet space chimp Vladimir Bananas. It’s the same spirit of competitive enterprise that stalled the moon landing by three years when Buzz Aldrin suplexed Neil Armstrong into a pile of folding chairs at Astromania ’69! Both teams will attempt to get the necessary fuel up a preposterously slow-moving elevator and into Poopy Joe’s Australium-powered rocket to the stars.

Doomsday is live now and we should expect to hear about the next update sometime today.

That “Meet the Pyro” video will be making its debut tomorrow morning. Of course, you can follow along with this handy countdown clock.
