Get ready for the nightmare of rooftime to come in the form of mindless robots...

All... those... airblasts from the roof.

Edit: Okay, looked at the pictures a bit better, and luckily there are no bottomless pits though.
Yup, my toes are dried up again.

Not so excited about the MvM content, but a new Manhattan map skin? Mmmmm, that's fun.

I'm finally excited about the MvM content, actually. Botkiller weapons look ugly, but weapon and character effects? I'll grind the shit out of it to get a set of weapons that have to "Ancient Power" effect, not to mention flaming pyro face is great.

I'm assuming to get stuff like that you'd have to buy a sort of Tour of Duty ticket like thing right? I merely skimmed the article since it's MvM related so I don't know the full details.

"The loot you'll get from completing a Tour of Duty will work a bit differently for the Two Cities Tour. Completing a Two Cities Tour automatically grants you a Killstreak Kit, which you can apply to any weapon to transform it into a Killstreak weapon. Completing the Tour also grants you a fabricator and spare parts that you can use to craft progressively rarer Killstreak Kits, which will add cool visual effects to your weapon and eventually even your character."

Since it is said to be a "tour" I suppose it works the same way as the earlier ones. Hoping it is the same tickets though.

I like the Austrailium weapons and wonder if the Killstreak cosmetics will be out of MvM as well. Like if you can have those effects in a different game.

I'd assume so since we can have Botkillers in normal gameplay.

Weapons that glow? Eh, not sold on it.

Fire eyes are sweet though.

The medic just got a lot more badass. If only we could use this stuff in normal play.

There are plugins to allow for that I believe, at least when mvm first came out I believe.
