Team Fortress 2 Can Now Be Played for Free

The highly popular online action game "Team Fortress 2" can now be enjoyed for free without restrictions as announced by game developer Valve on Thursday.

Team Fortress 2 is adopting the "free-to-play" business model on PC, and will be supported solely by virtual item sales.

Existing paying customers will have a "premium account" by having an access to extra features: rare items, more storage space in your backpack (300 slots compared to 50 for free accounts), the ability to give and receive gifts, and improved special abilities such as crafting and trading.

Gamers who purchase any item from Team Fortress 2's digital storefront the "Mann Co. Store" will also be granted premium account privileges.

Those who bought Team Fortress 2 before it went free will also receive a "Proof of Purchase hat" for any character. More details on the update can be seen at the official free-to-play FAQ.

Here's a short video announcement for the new, free Team Fortress 2:
