    Fortress Forever 2.1 was released last month

    For those of you that might be interested, the developers over at Fortress-Forever released version 2.1 on September 12th. Also, Fortress-Forever is being offered on steam as a free modification.

    There have been a lot of changes since FF was released a little over a year ago. And rest assured that the developers have been hard at work making FF the best multi player team fortress experience it can be.

    The change log is rather extensive, so I am just going to post a snippet here and the rest of the see the Team Fortress Forum.

    The fortress forever community also released a video about the changes -

    Here are just some of the changes included in the update.
