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

Keep kicking the crap out of TF2. Once this is released, Valve can get off the crapper, and possibly release a single-player on Half Life 3 which is WORTHY of Half Life 1.

The guys at TF2 must be taking turns

Yeah, 2fort will look like 2fort...except a better 2fort.

Progress is still moving along nicely. schtoofa (or rebo...or whoever else) just sometimes forgets to make updates here.

Be sure to check out the site for more news updates, as well as the dev journals, forums, and other good stuff.

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…
