Here's the article:
Quote:
Team Fortress might be all over the gaming headlines again now that Valve are finally remaking it but there’s a hard core of fans who had never forgotten (and indeed, never stopped playing) that great team-based, Half-Life-based multiplayer combat game in the first place. Some of those fans have elected to remake the original game in the Source engine, with just a few tricks, tweaks and miniguns of their own devising.
All the original maps will be recreated along with the original game modes of capture-the-flag, escort-the-VIP, territory control and so on. But the levels are being re-imaged, adding layers of backstory and detail to the basic forms of the originals: Dustbowl is an abandoned Western town where the goldrush has been and gone and left the perfect CTF setting, with smelting factories and a whorehouse.
Hunted is a mismash of factories and open spaces to dominate.
Character classes remain within their classic templates to keep the game’s unique hook: you get a choice of Scout, Sniper, Soldier, Demoman, Medic, HWGuy, Pyro, Spy, and Engineer, each with a specific role to fulfill. It’s here that TF’s addictive personality takes hold, as you master a character class and how to use the unique skills to blend into the team. A spy can take on the appearance of any of the enemy, but it’s relatively weak froma distance. HWGuy’s gun could mow down an elephant hiding behind a hippo, but his slow aiming and maneuvering are a major drag. The classes slot together, creating a well-balanced network of support and attack. Anyone looking for something more than just shooting will find Fortress Forever a welcoming and attractive challenge.
Some controversial aspects of the game, such as the manner of gaining momentum via ‘bunny-hopping’, will be included, but with a certain amount of constraint. It goes to show that the team are versed enough in the game to know what works and what doesn’t. They’re passionate fans, and keen to deliver a game that will please old-timers but also make it an experience that players newer to the Fortress dynamic will be comfortable with.
Imagine spending your years working on a mod that’ll give everyone the modern version of the game they want. Now imagine that when you’re nearing the end of your development, Valve tells everyone they’re doing the same thing. Most people would throw in the towel in right there, but Fortress Forever is looking too strong to be lost to fate.
Lets hope this one makes it.

Looks like we're on the map.

It's new, it's on page 102, but the December issue is already out in stores and being sent to subscribers. They do that with magazines ya know. And the text below the actual article is probably from the scanner program.


Ahh crap, they got the IP address wrong.

Can someone at FF HQ buy a www.fortressforever.com address and put a simple redirect to fortress-forever.com?

This will cause people to see, "Well it's obviously not a good game cause they don't even have a site!?!?!?!" So yeah, please, for everyone's sake, get a new domain.
