Revealing the fruits of their latest ARG teaser
, Valve Software have officially announced Mann vs Machine, uniting mortal enemies RED and BLU in a new horde-style co-operative game mode for the free-to-play shooter Team Fortress 2.
Gray Mann has built an unstoppable automaton army with a single purpose: to destroy all things Mann Co. Luckily for you, the majority of this robot legion is equipped with basic weaponry that could never level an entire building. Unluckily, they also have access to giant bombs, which they’d drag through hell if it meant dropping one in a Mann Co. bombhole. And it’s up to you to stop them. And it’s up to a small cadre of Special Robots to stop you from stopping the regular robots.
...Mann vs. Machine is a new co-operative game for Team Fortress 2 that lets you and five friends wage a desperate battle to stop a lethal horde of robots from deploying a bomb in one of Mann Co.’s many strongholds. Take advantage of breaks between waves to upgrade your abilities and weapons. Survive all the waves in any of a variety of missions to earn incredible loot.
There's still more to be revealed, but impressively, Mann vs Machine is set to launch on August 15th 2012 (US Pacfic Time), so we won't have to wait long to start kicking some robot ass. Watch the Mann vs Machine trailer below (here in HD
