Crossovers in the world of gaming seems fairly common now, what with Sackboy having tons of costumes of popular video game characters and Commander Video and Tim scheduled to make an appearance in Super Meat Boy later this summer. So it makes sense that the guys of Sam & Max and Team Fortress 2 would team up to.. wait, what?
That’s right, folks. From now until April 23rd, if you pre-order Sam & Max’s latest adventure, The Devil’s Playhouse, you’ll get three items to spruce up your gameplay in Team Fortress 2. The first of these is a purely cosmetic severed Max head hat, but the latter two are both both functional weapons you will be able to use in the game.
Both Max’s Pistol and Sam’s Revolver will be usable by any class, so if you are a fan of Sam & Max and you own a copy of TF2, this is just added incentive to pick up the game. It is scheduled to be released in episodes as the first adventure was, with a new adventure coming each month.
Your $35 admission price will buy you all five episodes and will keep you busy until August, when the last episode is released. You won’t have to wait long for your weapons in Team Fortress 2 however, since as soon as you pre-order, your hat and weapons will become available in similar style to Bill’s Beret last year. So what are you waiting for? Go get that game!
