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

Fortress Forever has been Greenlit by the community! Thank you to everyone that voted and helped to spread the word about our mod. Being Greenlit was considered something of a long shot, and we are thrilled to see it happen.

What does this mean for FF?

It means that sometime in the future, you'll be able to install Fortress Forever directly through Steam and you will receive updates automatically.

When will that happen?

Unfortunately, this is still something we are trying to figure out. It could be soon, or it could be not soon at all, depending on some information we are still waiting to find out. Sorry to be so ambiguous. Once we get more information, we'll be able to let you know with more certainty what will be happening.

For anyone having trouble connecting to servers or having trouble compiling maps, see this thread

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. :)

I wish more people play this... and by the way, it's better than Team Hatress 2.

Yup, I like the style of TF2, but when I saw the gameplay, I was disappointed. As an TFC oldtimer, that just wasn't my game. I really hope they make a TFC3 that looked like the beta TFC2 or something; it needs that original, oldschool TF feeling. Played this mod quit a bit in the days, sadly my pc could just run it. But I suddenly get an itch to play this again, will install it soon :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…
