Valve: Sniper pack to be "largest" one yet, earlier update incoming

Team Fortress 2 will be receiving "some new content for all classes" before the Sniper class get their new toys, blogs Valve's Greg Cherlin.

An Xbox 360 update is still in the pipeline but it's proving to be "a lot of work," they're over the console's memory limit. A code update will arrive sooner to address the "server cheating".

"The next class pack will focus on the Sniper. It's actually shaping up to be the largest TF2 update yet, with multiple new maps and a bunch of gameplay tweaks," posts Cherlin on the official TF2 blog.

"In addition, we've got another update in the works that should be done before the Sniper, and that one will include some new content for all classes."

"If you're wondering what's taking so long, since the content is "done" on the PC already, it's mostly been around fitting it all onto the XBox" he explained. "The original version of TF2 in the Orange Box was very close to the XBox's memory limit, and all the additional TF2 content we've produced has pushed well beyond it."

"In the meantime, we're going to get a code update out to address the server cheating that's going on." Gamers taking unfair advantage of one another? What a slanderous accusation!

Oh! Not played TF2 in absolutely ages! Will need to get back on it at some point. Looking forward to the updates.

Why do we have to wait for the console version? Noone waits for the PC version to be ready when the toy-box versions are released (CoD 5 is a good example). Gimme now!
