Catch up on Team Fortress 2 storyline with new comic

Valve has launched a free digital Team Fortress 2 Catch-Up comic in an effort to bring new players up to speed on its free-to-play competitive shooter's seven-year backstory.

Valve's latest comic briefs players on the events leading up to the endless in-game war between the red and blue factions, and offers a great deal of background detail and ancillary information. Did you know that Team Fortress 2 is actually a documentary? It's true!

The events seen in the catch-up comic lead directly into the core Team Fortress Comics series, which is also available for free online.
