Default TF2 now free to play/

Quote:
Fortress 2 as a complete free game, in what Valve describes as "the most ambitious update in the history of Team Fortress 2”.
Develop has been given exclusive access to speak to game’s longstanding patriarch, Robin Walker, to discuss the move in detail.

LOL there's a group on Steam who are complaining about this. Probably because they just bought it, and now it's free.

I don't like that it's free, but supposedly people who have bought it get a lot of perks that the free game doesn't have.

Making the game free to play + micro-transactions = $$$$$$$$

Very smart move! Valve knows what they're doing.

More people will be playing the game, thus more people will be buying hats and weapons and packs.
