Team Fortress 2 enjoys great popularity. This is helped, among other things, by a colorful array of distinctive characters. Recently, some of the voice actors working on the game had a chance to try it out for the first time in their lives.

Although Team Fortress 2 was released over 15 years ago, the community of Valve’s iconic online shooter remains loyal to their favorite game. In addition to the players themselves, the voice actors, who brought the roster of colorful characters to life years ago, are also helping to keep interest in the title going.. Virtual assistants are eager to get involved in TF2-related adventures, often referencing iconic characters on social media.

First contact with the game

A few days ago the channel of user ShorK (known for TF2 content) published a video, in which renowned actors had the opportunity to face the real game for the first time in their lives.

Among the guests to perform were: Dennis Bateman (voice of Spy and Pyro), Gary Schwartz (Assault and Demo), Robin Atkin Downes (Medic), also married John Patrick Lowrie and Ellen McLain (Sniper and Administrator, respectively).

And although almost all of the guests honestly admitted that they didn’t have much experience with video games. (let alone the net shooters), the chance to see their fights on screen proved to be an extremely delightful experience.

  1. The actors, while gradually becoming familiar with the basic mechanics of the game, often engaged in strange interactions that would not be encountered during normal gameplay on any server.
  2. It should be noted, for example, John Patrick Lowrie, who, playing as a sniper, used the scope only at the end of the match, or Robin Atkin Downes, who together with other doctors from the team, decided to follow the path of pacifism.
  3. The actors, experiencing for the first time the work they helped co-create and occasionally “jumping” into the roles of the characters they played, are sure to please any fan of the game. Valve’s signature shot.

The rising tide and the future of TF2

It’s worth mentioning at this point that for some time we’ve been seeing a gradual increase in the popularity of Team Fortress 2. SteamDB says that a record number of players have played the game in recent months, peaking in early December last year (over 167,000 concurrent users!).

The increased interest in the game may also be influenced by reports that Valve was planning to release another major update for the game. that their favorite game will finally get a well-deserved update.

It remains to be hoped that despite a decade and a half under its belt, Valve will not forget the beloved game and that it will be enjoyed by generations of gamers for years to come.
