Around twenty new items - winners of the Polycount contest - will be added to Team Fortress 2 next month, alongside trading.

Around twenty new items will be added in a Team Fortress 2 update next month, Valve's Robin Walker has told PC Gamer, as well as the ability to trade items with your chums.

The winning items from modelling community site Polycount's TF2 pack contest--such as the soldier pack pictured left--will all be added in the update. Walker reveals that another Polycount pack entry, not named as a winner, will also be added as a surprise--"now not a surprise," he realises, adding "Fail."

The Polycount items will be more unique than most other community-made items, Walker explains. "We definitely have lowballed those in the past, in that we've chosen something that's more underpowered than overpowered, because we can just make it a little better later. The Polycount items have had a lot more time on them as a whole, so, we're doing more interesting stuff there than in general we have with the other items."

Trading, nice!
Give items to people who don't deserve them!
But, really, thanks for the Polycount items, they are awesome!!
