It's been a long wait, but Valve has finally released the next real "Meet the Team" video along with their Über Update. The video is over four whole minutes, revolving around the Medic and his medical genius. Actually, he's crazy, but as long as he gets the job done, who cares?
Despite his complete disregard for human life, the man raises a flock of white doves, and his favorite is Archimedes, named after the Greek scholar. Very cute, we assure you. And at the end of the video, you'll notice another big announcement: Team Fortress 2 is completely free to play.
It probably doesn't surprise many people, given the way Team Fortress 2 works in its current state. Rather than charge for the game, Valve will make it totally free to download and play while relying on sales made through the in-game Team Fortress 2 store. And now, Meet the Medic.
That man seriously loves his job. Now all that's left is the Pyro video.
Update: Get full Über Update details here, including the lowdown on new Medic gear. For those of you who picked up Team Fortress 2 before today's announcement, your account will automatically be upgraded to the premium status. This doesn't change the gameplay in any way, but does offer a few in-game perks. Note that anyone who buys an item from the Mann Co. store also gets the premium upgrade.
