Skyrim, From Dust invade Team Fortress 2

New items promote QuakeCon

Valve has released a new update for Team Fortress 2 and as well as the usual gameplay tweaks it's also thrown in a few awesome items as a shout-out to games such as From Dust, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Quake.

We're guessing this is just a marketing stunt designed to (mostly) promote QuakeCon, which takes place this week, but since the items are pretty cool we're willing to let this bit of shameless marketing pass.

There's a total of five goodies; the first is the 'Tamrielic Relic' for The Heavy, the headware worn by Dovahkiin in the first Skyrim trailer. The Engineer gets the 'Wingstick', the boomerang-esque weapon from RAGE as well as a Pip-Boy from the Fallout series.


The Sniper can wear an item called 'The Anger', which is styled to resemble the bandanas worn by the resistance in Brink. Meanwhile The Demoman gets the mask worn by the tribesmen in From Dust. Finally is 'The Original', a new rocket launcher that looks like the iconic weapon from Quake.

You can check them all out in the images below. Or since Team Fortress 2 is now free-to-play you can go ahead and grab them yourself.
