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.

"i think the announcement of TF2 has done nothing but make FF even more popular, as long as FF releases before TF2. " By thursdizzle

I agree, I have not seen so many posts on this mod since i discovered modDB. I am glad to see so many people still paying attention to it and i am very excited to the fact that beta will be coming out next month. thanks for the update guys.

I know more about some things than you realise. I have seen more than 1 "screen shot" but I wont go into details.

Lets just say I think they are going to run it into the ground if they keep it the way it is at the moment.

You have seen 1 screen of TF2 and you can tell it's going to be crap? You must be all knowing, I wish I had your talents of deduction. Especially your comment on it looks too cartoony, that was the angle they were going for.

Regardless, nice to see FF is coming together nicely, it's been a while since I checked it out.

TF2 looks like crap. The original ideas they had should never been scraped. If you look at the screenshots of it now it looks way too cartoonish.

This mod however. You dont have to pay for due to its a mod. ( and the Mod team is making it a free mod unlike some other mod turning his into something you have to pay, not going to mention names *cough*garry*cough* )

Anyways :P This mod looks way better than TF2. And I cant wait for Fortress Forever to come out. Hell it even comes out in the same month of my B day! ( Augest ) So its even better :P

Besides. If you look at what vaulve has done to TFC and the screenshots of TF2, you know its going to suck.

I found episode 1 to be a major dissapointment and that is why they are trying to add 2 other "games" ( but really they are MODS ) with episode 2. Also there is something wrong when I can beat it in about a hour or less. ( I looked at the time before I started and when I beat it, It was WAY too easy and short for me )

Vaulve is slipping, the only reason why there games stay alive is due to the mod teams out there. Without mods like this, there would be no way I would give vaulve even one penny of my money in order to have the base game you have to have to play the mod.

Keep up the good work guys, hope you do make your release date in Augest for more than 1 reason :P

well, the good thing is that this mod will probably be played more than the official TF, since...

1. valve hasnt kept the community up-to-date on the progress of TF2
2. because of above stated, members of the community will have forgotten to track progress, and eventually, forgot the game itself.
3. cartoony gfx. i dont know how many ppl will go for this twist of a new look. just look at what happened to the legend of zelda: wind waker(other than the fact the series continued to be released on the gcube). this will mostly be something brand new compared to the (quoted)"gritty, realistic look" of DOD:S and CS:S.
4. this mod stays true to the original looks and style that so many TF players and vets had enjoyed over the years.
5. valves rep. obtained from recent years' progress and release of titles(new and ports/updates/sequels) give community members a somewhat future expectation of whats to come... which is not good.*not saying valve has gone ALL bad, but some places theyre achieving higher than others*
6. ive wanted to play this mod for a LONG time. so i am one less TF2 player the community will see. but nevertheless, i will give TF2 a try, since im going to buy HL2 ep2 anyway.
7. all of above stated.

so dont give up guys, i dont want to see this mod go down the pipe like others have just because valve makes a release similar to this. im sure many others agree with me when i say that i want to see this mod done, and i want to play it. gl dev team!

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…
