Fortress Forever is a Source mod inspired by the earlier versions of the Team Fortress series (Team Fortress Classic and QuakeWorld Team Fortress). Our all-volunteer team has created this mod entirely from scratch and continued to develop it for over 5 years now. It was originally released in September of 2007. Fortress Forever involves two or more teams, each with 9 available classes, competing in a variety of map-determined objectives (capture the flag, territorial control, invade and defend, etc). Each class has its own unique abilities and strengths that offer extremely varied playstyles. The gameplay ranges from fast-paced, competitive, and deep to absurd and chaotic.

  • Totally free; only requires a Steam account with Source SDK Base 2006 installed.
  • Fast paced, team- and class-based gameplay
  • Faithful to the spirit of Team Fortress Classic (TFC) and QuakeWorld Team Fortress (QWTF), meaning Fortress Forever includes offhand grenades, bunnyhopping, etc
  • 10 Classes (9 + Civilian)
  • Training level and in-game hints
  • Extensive map scripting/customization using Lua

5 comments by squeek502 on Oct 18th, 2014

It's been nearly a year since Fortress Forever was Greenlit, and there's been a total lack of updates since then. To remedy that, here are two things that will be happening in the coming weeks:

  • The current version of Fortress Forever will be released on Steam
  • The Fortress Forever code will be made open source on Github

Why did it take a year for this to happen?
We didn't think it was possible to release the current version of FF on Steam because we thought that the version of the Source SDK that FF uses was too old. Neotokyo proved otherwise, and we are able to follow their lead and finally release FF on Steam.

What does 'released on Steam' mean?
It means that you'll be able to install Fortress Forever directly through Steam and that you will receive updates automatically. As always, Fortress Forever will be completely free.

Why go open source?
Fortress Forever's development has been largely opaque for a huge majority of the playerbase for a very long time, and the reason for that opaqueness has not always been intentional; attempting to keep everyone informed can be pretty labor intensive. By moving our development entirely into public view, it will be easier for everyone to stay in the loop with what will be happening with the game, and will give everyone a chance to participate directly in the development process.

You should add an option for server owners to disable bunnyhopping, bunnyhopping was (along with other exploits) the main reason why so many players left TFC, if you added an option to disable it then I'm sure more people would play this. :)

one of the core features of FF is bunnyhopping. (its balanced around it.) so you could learn to bunnyhop its not always easy but once you learn its like a riding a bicycle. :D

hold space bar move side to side done :D

This mod makes me feel as if I was playing Team Fortress Classic!

Lowest Rated (7 agree) 5/10

Instead of taking team fortress classic and improving it in a new original way without it being a copy paste of TF2... instead they decided to remake team fortress classic... exploits and all. Scout still feels weak, medic is still unusually powerful. The maps are rather underwhelming.. Bunnyhopping, all I want is a option to disable it. Any server that has disabled bunnyhopping would automatically have a tag that says "bhop off" so it wouldn't hurt anyone. Quake was designed for strafe jumping…
