The Love and War update to Valve's enormously popular Team Fortress 2 has released and with it comes a slew of new content.
According to Steam News, the automatically applied update adds five new weapons, fifteen new taunts and forty-three cosmetic items to the game.
The update also adds new bread-based weapons via a Bread Box Special Crafting Recipe. The items will no longer be available after July 9th, with Valve promising that items crafted from the Bread Box "have a chance to be strange."
There is a new taunt loadout, allowing players to equip up to 8 taunts at a time, while pressing the taunt key now brings up a taunt selection menu. A taunt category has been added to the Mann Co. Store, along with 15 new taunts.
Other additions to the Mann Co. Store include the five new weapons and a weapons bundle, the merging of Hats and Misc. into a Cosmetics category, and the addition of the Mann Co. Audition Reel - which contains taunts and a chance at an "unusual taunt."
A countdown timer on the Team Fortress 2 website teased a fifteen minute short called"Expiration Date," which coincided with day one of the Love and War update.
The free-to-play shooter released in 2007 has been as profitable for Valve as it is popular with gamers, and has seen many updates and additions since its initial release.
