Team Fortress 2 gets spooky with the latest update.

The latest update to Team Fortress 2 has arrived, and it comes with four new community maps, the Wicked Windfall Case, and more.

Once you launch the game you will receive a Soul Gargoyle if you don’t already have one, you can participate in new Contracts for this year’s featured community maps, and join Halloween matches by using the Special Events category in Casual.

Alongside the Halloween comes a Mannpower update which makes map and gameplay changes.

Scream Fortress XII runs through November 7, and the latest update will be applied automatically when you restart the game. You will find changes with the Halloween update below, and the rest of the patch notes through here.
