Team Fortress 2 Meet The Medic, Uber Update Going Live Thursday

Valve is gearing up to release the "Über Update" for Team Fortress 2 on Thursday. They say it's the "biggest, most ambitious update" in the class-based shooter's history.

Every day this week they'll announce some of the update's contents. Today, for example, they revealed a Mafia-themed class pack. It adds mobster-like weapons for both the Spy and Heavy, as well as a new Payload map called Barnblitz.

Valve's also got a surprise up their sleeves for Thursday. They gave Internet detectives a few hints to piece together:

1.) It IS a "Meet the" short. 2.) It involves ONE of the two remaining classes. 3.) It's NOT the Pyro. 4.) It's the MEDIC.

To celebrate the upcoming update, Valve has made TF2 free to play all this week. You can download the files through Steam.
