on

Team Fortress 2 recently received a significant update. It not only breathed new life into the game but also reintroduced a mode that fans previously enjoyed as a mod. The Versus Saxton Hale (VSH) maps have now been incorporated into the main game, pitting all players against one, who takes on the role of Saxton Hale.

The player numbers over the past few weeks have matched July ’22 and exceed the average player base count for the year.
