Calling all Team Fortress 2 players! And we know there's plenty of you out there because you've managed to kick our butts--repeatedly--in Frag the Editor Fridays quite a few times now. Valve has released a new online store, caleed Mann-conomy, that will allow players to buy, trade and customize a ton of inventory items in the game's history, using their Steam Wallets. The Steam Wallets will be accounts that players can add money to--sort of like a gift card.
The first update comes chock full with 65 new items that introduce five new class weapon kits, 18 new hats, and the ability to duel with pistols. The Mann-Conomy will allow BLU and RED mercenaries to finally trade these items with each other, which should add a bit more playability to the game. Players will also be able to duel, which could really increase hostility during matches. We say, bring it on!
There's a nifty FAQ page if you're just not entirely sure what we're talking about here. The Mann-conomy will accept US Dollars, British Pounds and European Euros!
