The first version of Team Fortress, an add-on for Quake, was released on August 24, 1996. It was originally written because the authors wanted a first-person perspective, team strategy game for LAN competitions. Version 1 .0 only included the Scout, Sniper, Soldier, Demolitions Man and Medic classes and did not support any map entities.

Shortly thereafter version 1.1 of Team Fortress was released, which incorporated the beginnings of TF map support, some playability improvements and the Heavy Weapons Guy. These features were followed by the incorporation of team objectives into the game design and the 2Fort map, perhaps the most copied map design on the Internet.

On the 22nd of December 1996 Version 2.0 was released for Quake World. It was the first released Quake World add-on. At this point, interest in Team Fortress exploded, with over 40% of the Quake community running servers dedicated to Team Fortress within several months.

TF Software incorporated on April 4, 1997 to commercially develop updates and future releases of Team Fortress. TF Software combines the efforts of approximately 20 developers, artists, musicians, modelers, and map makers in Australia, Canada, the US, Germany, and Japan.

Since then, TFS has been bought by Valve Software. The creators of TF have gone on to make the smash hits Half-Life and Half-Life 2, and released a port of thier own TF mod for HL called Team Fortress Classic.

This is the mod that started the TF legacy and still has a strong playerbase.
