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

I'm looking forward to both this mod and TF2.
TF2 should provide some new fun gameplay and a radical new style, while FF should provide as a cure to TFC style gameplay.

Well I too have just received the sad information of TF2 so I decided that I should do a little more research. I checked the forums at and did a search for Fortress. all i found were people bitching about how crappy TF2 looks and that FF looks so much better. All i can say is for everyone to make sure that you post about FF in any forum that talks about TF2. I believe that it will be much better, and I would lke as many people knowing about the mod as possible. ESPECIALLY since it will be free as opposed to having to pay for Episode 2 to get TF2.
I really do not see it as a threat to FF as a competitor though, but time will tell.

We can hardly believe it ourselves - Team Fortress 2 will finally see the light of day as it will ship with Half-Life: Episode 2! As reported by our sister site, GameSpy PC:
Valve Software's golden boy, Gabe Newell, made a surprise appearance at today's Electronic Arts Summer Showcase at Redwood Shores. Perhaps the one revelation that hit harder than all the rest was that the long-awaited Team Fortress 2 will be included with Half-Life 2: Episode 2 later this year. A trailer of the game was shown at the convention. From what we saw we can tell you that most, if not all of the classic character classes you know and love are back. The game also sports a new art style that's drastically different from Counter-Strike: Source or Day of Defeat: Source. Rather than going for a gritty, realistic look, the characters have a more cartoonish, flat-shaded look, comparable to the way Pixar's The Incredibles looks.
Pinch me, I must be dreaming. So is that all? No way. A new singleplayer experience called Portal will also ship with Half-Life 2: Episode 2.

But wait, how much would you pay now? Because there's still more: Episodes 1 and 2 will ship for both XBox 360 and Playstation 3.

The full story is so big it requires two different articles to tell it all. You can read them here

I have two questions.

1. Will that hook (grappling hook) feature be on there our would be able to be blocked from happening so it isnt exploited like it was in TFC?

2. Will the Engie's EMP nades explode the ammo a person is carrying, so the more ammo they are carrying the more damage is inflicted on the person and that player looses all ammo??

I am very excited about this mod. It brings back so much nostalgia to me and I keep telling more and more friends about the game that are getting psyched by it. Just keep us all updated as much as possble. Looking forward to this mod more than any other, but I also hope that you take your time and don't Half-*** it like most of these mods. I like what i see so far. Good Job.

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

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…
