Fortress Forever is a Source Mod inspired by Team Fortress. Our independent team has created this mod entirely from scratch. Fortress Forever should please those who have stuck with or been a part of QWTF and TFC over the years while at the same time doing more for new TF players than any prior Fortress attempt.

Post news Report RSS A Long Overdue Update

In the coming weeks, Fortress Forever will finally be released on Steam and its code will be open sourced

Posted by on

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.
