Valve Teases Team Fortress 2 Engineer Update

The wait is almost over for Team Fortress 2 Engineer players: A class update is coming and details may be hidden in the new video teaser.

Valve has been holding out on the Engineer update, giving the other classes all kinds of goodies to make Engineer players green with envy. That wait is ending "soon" according to Valve, which has released a new trailer to whet our appetite until the actual release.

Although apparent details are scarce, you do get a glimpse of a blueprint in the background that depicts a large mechanical arm, to say nothing of the hammer the Engineer brandishes at the end of the video. Are these red herrings? Hints of what is to come? Knowing Valve, it's likely the video is loaded with Easter eggs regarding the nature of the new update. It'll give fans something to speculate about while they wait for the actual release.

Soon you say?
Well in Valve Time that probably means a few months.
Still though, I'm exited. Here's hoping for something that will build stuff faster!

Edit: Also, if its like any of the other class updates, that means free TF2 weekend and a price cut. Which would also mean more people can buy it for cheap.

You know... just sayin'...

99% of the Steam forums will bitch about this in some way

Obvious video is obvious

Be good to see the Engie getting a bit of love after the Direct Hit, Scottish Resistance and Cloak/Dagger + Deadringer.

Although I'm gonna enjoy all the pipeline maps with 14 Engies on it....and one spah! ;)

I am very much looking forward to this update, hopefully they'll give something to the engie to make him have some mobility. There's nothing more boring than sitting there for 30 minutes whacking away at a sentry gun with no enemies beside the odd spy, while hearing all the other players having fun exploding each other outside the building.

Valve always plays with my emotions and desires. But I still <3 them. Also, Valve Time.

I'm very interested in what his update will be. VERY interested. I wonder what it will be and how they have kept him the same... awesome. I was hoping for a MASSIVE structure that takes 4 engineers to build and if they succeed they win the game the other team must kill them... Actually this sounds like fun.

I'm really looking forward to this! As soon as this hits some time next year, I'm going to go back to playing TF2!

Look at the video at 0:10 you can clearly see a strange, robot like, head on the far left side, possible clue?

A buildable combat drone that wanders around shooting people?

Love the video and can not wait for the engi update but knowing valve it will take a while and they are just teasing us with this video.

Better Soon (tm) then never.

To add more craziness, a banjo wielding mecha suit?

What's the Engineer building?

Looking forward to ti...I wonder what they are going to give it! Shinn Shinny!

I see some sort of segway with a big rotary gun on the front, and perhaps a big AI flamey bot?

I hope?

For a moment I thought that was an Avara.I was disappointed :(

The Engineer is Iron Man. Simple as that.

I'd say there is going to be a robotic arm that can pick up or utilize other class weapons with a very small ammo load allowing extra firepower at the cost of the sentry.

i reckon a new sentry, which can teleport between 2 locations, with a few seconds build time. Makes the engineer more proactive. Thats what I hope for...

Also updates for the 360? Please?

I believe that the update will allow the Engineer to fly and bend matter, and in some specific gametypes, time itself. He may also be able to communicate with God, or an other form of omnipotent deity.

Finally, Its Engi Time!

Upgrade a wrench to a sonic screwdriver? That would be awesome cubed.

Which is why the engineer is now god. Have I ever told you guys that I am obsessed with Iron Man?

I thought you'd be more of a laser screwdriver kind of person Root. :D

I know! I know!

He's building Terminator armor. /blatant 40k fandom

I want Valve to make a freaking Team Fortress 2 web series! The Meet the Team Videos are brilliant.

Looking forward to this, engies have been dying too fast ever since my Sasha got upgraded. Now they might actually be a challenge!

It's kind of scary honestly, I mean, most of the other unlocks have done nothing but screw with the game, and it's not as if the engineer really needs fixing or anything.

Ah well, it should be fun and interesting, either way.

DO NOT MENTION THE DIRECT HIT IN FRONT OF ME, BLASPHEMER.

Lookin' forward to this one though. It's about time the engie got himself some lovin'.

How about a teleporter that'll take a Medic+[insert class here] at the same time? Either that or kick-ass Power Armour for the Engy, but he'd move as slow as the Heavy but could act as a portable Dispenser?

Wow, that's actually quite a cool idea. Mobile dispensers are a good thought at any rate.

Not only does this look like a great update, it probably means a weekend sale of the game. Which, in turn, means I can finally get my hands on the superior PC version.

Release date: December 13, 2012. No one will be able to play with it.

Also, I'm still waiting for the Meet the Pyro and the Meet the Medic videos. It's only been two years, they should come out soon...

Yay engis will get more powers. Friends and foes alike know I am the most annoying combat engi so with this, it will just expand my arsenal of torture. Anyone notice that red-eyed mask on the bottom right when he's brandishing the hammer?

I wonder, does Valve read the fan webcomic, Cuanta Vida? Since recently the BLU engy had his hand cut off by the RED spy. Maybe that's where the blueprint is coming from.

I would be excited except for the fact that I hate Engineers and whenever a new update is released everyone plays as that class.

I'm glad class-limit servers exist.

Gods Valve you're one cruel mistress. I love you. I love you so much. The evil little chuckle of the Engineer just tops the video, I want to know what that clever devil is up to. Right now!!!

This is also the update I'm most curious about, as the Engineer pretty much has the biggest impact on the game of all classes. Tweaking him must be horribly difficult and I'm very curious for what they'll come up with.

You just did that to me. Thank you so much, I love you.

I'm betting for this though:
