Team Fortress 2 (TF2) is the sequel to the game that put class-based, multiplayer team warfare on the map. This video showcases TF2’s implementation of the Source engine’s advanced facial animation technology, which enables real-time, in-game, in-engine facial animations that can now surpass the facial animations used in feature film and broadcast television production.
Team Fortress 2 is coming this fall (October 10) as part of the Orange Box, which also features Half-Life® 2: Episode 2 and Portal and includes Half-Life® 2 and Half-Life® 2: Episode 1.
