Team Fortress 2 Summer Update: 14 Community Maps, 6 Taunts, and More

Team Fortress 2 VALVE

In just a few months, Team Fortress 2 will be 15 years old. Even one and a half decades later, the multiplayer first-person shooter by Valve is still going strong, with a quarter of a million players currently playing it as of writing.

The game's player base is this high because of the update released yesterday. The Summer Update 2023 is big, and what's surprising is that most of the content was created by the community.

The patch adds 14 new community maps and six new community-contributed taunts, with the latter can be purchased via the Mann Co. Store. The Summer 2023 Cosmetic Case, containing 25 new items, has been added as well.
