Move That Update Up!.jpg
Over the last week we've taken you through some of our thinking around maps, weapons and items. We thought you might find it interesting if we walked you through the process we use to ship an update to TF2.

There we go, update shipped.

The Summer Event Update was the in-game release of several items that were selected by Valve for outstanding quality through the Steam Workshop and resubmitted using new item importing system, along with the fixing of several exploits and bugs present in existing maps and the tweak to several weapons. Released with the July 10, 2013 Patch, the update added a total of 64 new Cosmetic items which were available via opening Crates with their special Summer Cooler Keys, and 2 new maps, Standin, and Process.
