TF2 Gets New Highlander Game Mode

Team Fortress 2 has gained a new game mode in its latest update. The “Highlander” mode. Apparently inspired by the “Eyelander” sword acquired by the Demoman during the Soldier vs Demoman War, the Highlander mode allows two teams of 9 to square off, with only one person per class.

Remember there is sccheduled downtime on Steam tonight from 6:00 pm PST to 9:00 pm PST!
