Following on from yesterday’s news that Valve Corporation may embrace the upcoming Wii U and finally bring its creations to Nintendo hardware, the renowned videogame studio has now made one of its top properties free to play.

Specifically, Washington-based Valve has slapped a free-to-play sign on its acclaimed shooter Team Fortress 2, which initially made a splash some four years ago alongside flagship bundle Half-Life 2: The Orange Box.

Of course, there’s really no such thing as ‘free’ in this world, and, while basic access to the game comes without charge, the expansion of gameplay by adding unique equipment and character kits remains attached to online micro-transactions.

Those new to the game need not fear their own lack of experience, thanks to the inclusion of training and offline modes that allow for the honing of skills before taking the action to real-world adversaries.

Some of the game modes available in Team Fortress 2 include Capture the Flag, Control Point, Payload, Arena, and King of the Hill.

Team Fortress 2 is now open for anyone and everyone using Valve’s popular Steam service via either a PC or Mac computer. Console versions of the game are not included.
