Valve's announced a Team Fortress 2 scheme that will help fund the on-going relief efforts in Japan.
The Half-Life developer's announced three limited edition in-game hats, ranging from $7.99 to $99.99, with proceeds going directly towards the Japanese disaster relief fund that the American Red Cross has set up.
"Here at Valve, we've always been consistently blown away by the creativity and generosity of the TF2 community -- through art contests, map making, item creating, or any one of the hundreds of other ways that you manage to impress us every day," Valve writes on the TF2 Blog.
"Today, we'd like to offer a chance to help out at a time when that help matters most.
"To support the relief efforts currently underway in Japan, we're introducing three limited edition hats and two special noisemakers to the Mann Co. store. The "Humanitarian's Hachimaki" ($7.99), the "Benefactor's Kanmuri" ($19.99) and the most prestigious "Magnanimous Monarch" ($99.99) will be available from now through April 6.
"All proceeds (net of applicable taxes) will go directly towards the Japanese disaster relief fund that the American Red Cross has set up. The hats can be equipped by all classes; however, they cannot be traded or used for crafting.
"After April 6, none of these items will be available in any form. We encourage you to spend as much as you are comfortable with contributing to this good cause."
