One of the goals of the upcoming update will be to "make the Heavy more viable when he has no Medic to pair with," TF2 director Robin Walker wrote on the game's blog.

And you thought it was bad when the medic achievements were introduced...

New Official Team Fortress 2 Maps Coming

Submitted by: Colosus @ 12:45 PM | Friday, December 14, 2007 | (url: http://ve3d.ign.c...)

We are currently working on new maps, and we are planning to release them as downloadable content for the 360. I don't know what the schedule will be for that - new maps will likely be released individually on the PC as they're ready, and then we'll offer them as a single pack on the 360. We're currently testing a new map that's extremely fun, and we can't wait for our customers to try it out.
