Who remembers the novel, "A tale of two cities" by Charles Dickens? Well, the creative (yet unstable) minds at Team Fortress decided it needed a sequel. What could possibly go wrong? 


If you find that news to upsetting, then just skip it and move towards the 2013 Saxxy Awards. It will blow your eyeballs out.


It was the best of was the worst of times

A Tale of Two Cities pits tow cities against each other, Manhattan vs Rottenburg. Manhatten is filled with the Steel Horde, protecting the manufacturing arm of Saxton Hale's boutique Mhankö line (whatever can that be?!)  Rottenburg (it seems) is filled with Mad Medics.

Players can expect the usual pushing-the-envelope weapon and apparel upgrades.

Check out the complete update notes for for A Tale of Two Cities Manhattan here and Rottenburg here.
