It's been a whole year since you guys played a Team Fortress Halloween map. If we threw you into the 900-mile-an-hour hellride we've got planned this year without warming you up first, you'd essentially be going from an idle state of terrorlessness to a shrieking nightmare of solid 100% terror almost instantly. It would be the equivalent of going from seeing zero skeletons to seeing a thousand skeletons at once. Are your eyes deceiving you? That's when you reach up to your eyes and realize... they are also skeletons! AWOOOOO!
 
A shock to the system like that wouldn't just kill you. It would make you crap your pants (not fatal), turn your hair white (still okay), and make your heart beat so fast it would blow up your ribcage (now you're dead).
 
Luckily, you can now play previous years' Halloween spectaculars to get your shock tolerance up in advance of the update. Simply boot up the game, hop into multiplayer and quickplay any of our past five Scream Fortress updates. If you've missed out on previous Team Fortress Halloweens, or are new to TF2 in general, this is a perfect time to catch up.
 
Also, remember to LOOK WHAT'S IN YOUR DRIVEWAY IT IS THE WOLFMAN'S CAR! See? That was so scary it almost put you in a coma. Get practicing.

 

- Scream Fortress Classic begins!

- In preparation for Scream Fortress 2014 we've enabled all previous Halloween events
- Fixed The Larval Lid not using the correct Blue team material

 
tl;dr get to farming those old spells and costume pieces

Any bets on the next event?


There once was a kitty named Tomo
As famous on the Internet as Domo
But his face got all shitty
Because he's a bad kitty
And now he's washed up like Rivers Cuomo

Last year was supposedly planned to be a "boss rush" mode before it was scrapped.  Maybe they'll do that this year?

 

Other than that, the go-to bets involve, at the very least, a map that doesn't need to end again (KOTH, PLR, SD, RD).

I've heard reports that the time between personal gift spawns has been moved up to three hours.

 

Farming still possible-ish, just a bit more difficult.

Boss rushes are so boring. I could get on board with a SD event map though. Given the hints that the story is leading into space, my bets are on ghost Poopy Joe.

Perhaps that's just for the past events to make sure people get their gifts from this year's event? It certainly would be inconsiderate to have such a spread out spawn time, not everyone can play that often!
