Yes it is not a joke! This is the real deal, the highly anticipated Fortress Forever has unexpectendly been released early.
It was noted earlier this week that Fortress Forever would not be released before monday. As Team Fortress 2 beta was also unexpectedly announced for this monday it seems that the Fortress Forever team decided to go with an earlier release.
Fortress Forever is a Team Fortress mod for Half-life 2’s Source Engine. Our independent team is creating this mod entirely from scratch.
Fortress Forever should please those who have stuck with or been a part Half-life: TFC over the years while at the same time doing more for new TF players than any prior Fortress attempt.
Fortress Forever will be free to those who purchase Half-life 2.
