Team Fortress 2 gets big upgrade, adds “Steampipe” content delivery

Thursday, 2nd May 2013 09:41 GMT By Dave Cook

Team Fortress 2 developer Valve has dropped the update-bomb today, with a brand new patch that integrates the studio’s new “Steampipe” content delivery method, among other things.

Kotaku reports that Steampipe will result in faster downloads and loading times, as well as making the game and mods player nicer together.

It’s a whopping update though, and Valve asked players to be patient over on its blog, “It might look like it’s hung. But it’s not. Don’t interrupt it, just please be patient and let it think.”

You can check out Steam’s full Steampipe FAQ here to see how it all works. Steampipe also applies to Counter-Strike: Source, Day of Defeat: Source, and Half-life 2: Deathmatch.

Let us know if you try it out.

    I’m pretty sure they’ve been implementing this for a while as I’ve had to convert games to a “new format” on a few of my games.
