Team Fortress 2 update introduces video editing

Win an award for your kills...

Valve's released a new Replay Update for Team Fortress 2, allowing players to edit videos, earn new achievements and - if you get enough YouTube hits - win a new hat. Will it ever stop making new features for this game?

If you play on one of the new replay-enabled servers every round of your matches will be recorded, ready for editing via the game's main menu.

Valve's released an FAQ for the feature here.

The update introduces eight new Achievements to unlock and 1000 YouTube views will earn you a new hat.


Interestingly, Valve's also planning to hold the first ever Saxxy Awards. Submit videos in any of the following categories and you'll be in with a chance of winning a nice trophy:

  • Most Inventive Kill
  • Best Mid-air Murder
  • Biggest Massacre
  • Funniest Replay
  • Best Getaway
  • Best Revenge
  • Most Pwnage
  • Most Heroic
  • Players Choice
  • Best Set Design
  • Best Team Costume
  • Best Original Soundtrack
  • Best 30 Second Trailer
  • Best Coordinated Combat
  • Most Dramatic
  • Best Cinematography
  • Best Editing
  • Most Epic Fail
  • Most Extreme Stunt
  • Best Overall Replay

Valve asks that participants keep their creations less than a minute and record them in at least 720p. "If you think we're sitting through hundreds of hours-long submissions, guess again, Scorsese."
