After so many years of warring between each other it looks like the Blue and Red factions have finally decided to put aside their differences and battle against a common enemy: the Machines. Valve’s renowned “most fun you can have online” game Team Fortress 2 Mann vs. Machine is now available as a TF2 update on Steam and ready to transform the fields of battle into junkyards. M vs. M is a 6 player Co-op game mode that throws you and 5 other friends (or random TF2 M vs. M players) against enormous waves of robot doppelgangers of our favorite mercenaries trying to plant a massive bomb on Mann Co.
The new mode includes 3 new maps (Mannworks, Coal Town and Decoy) that take advantage of the new features and allows the player to improve their abilities and weapons in-between wave breaks. It will also give players the opportunity to “earn incredible loot and unlock new achievements” in a variety of missions if the players manage to survive the coming onslaught of boss waves with even more challenging giant robots. Mostly everything is free-to-play as Valve introduced the Mann Up mode. This special mode is played on an official Mann Co. server which requires a “Tour of Duty” ticket costing $0.99 (£0.99 in the UK). All items earned in Mann Up Mode do not affect gameplay as they are for cosmetic purposes only and can be used “throughout all of TF2, and are tradable”.
