, where you can now view a new digital comic

Scheduled to run from October 26th (PST) though to November 8th, Scream Fortress includes a special King of the Hill map where players battle a "bomb-spewing, fate-spinning spectral magician" Merasmus, some magic spells that can be applied to backpack items for cosmetic fun, and a new map for the cooperative Mann vs Machine mode, titled "Wave 666" that replaces the modes robots with zombies:

That said, we're still calling it "Wave 666", because we asked Glenn Danzig and he said that sounded way more badass than "Wave More Than Eight Hundred".
