If you haven’t heard by now, one of the greatest games is available Free to Play! That great game is Team Fortress 2 by the makers of Half-Life and Counter-Strike among some other greats.
But, 2guys, I have already purchased the game years ago and now these fresh newbs get to play it for Free!
Yes! I know, as I did the same years ago at a LAN party just to join in the fun but the game sat in my Steam Games list for ages unplayed due to Left 4 Dead / Left 4 Dead 2…
Here’s the run-down that I gathered from the TF2 site;
Q. Who has a free account?
Anyone who has downloaded the game for free and has not made a purchase in the in-game Mann Co. store has a free account.
Q. Who has a premium account?
If you’ve ever spent money on TF2, you have a premium account. This includes purchasing the game before it was Free-to-Play, activating a retail version of the game, or making a purchase in the Mann Co. in-game store.
Q. How is a free account different than a premium account?
Premium accounts have a few extra features, including access to rare and cosmetic items through random item drops, the ability to store more items in your backpack, and more powerful trading and crafting abilities. Otherwise, the gameplay experience will be identical for both accounts.
