Tom's already heaped praise on Valve's long-awaited Team Fortress 2, due to arrived with other delights in the ridiculously generous Orange Box later this month. But with the beta already up-and-running, today EGTV brings you the first of our exclusive character class gameplay showcases: the Engineer.

We've already met this red-blooded, beer-swillin', guitar-pluckin' brute in the recent teaser. Today's vid shows off the key skills of the class: building and upgrading turrets, ammo dispensors and teleports and, of course, performing an amazing hillbilly victory jig.

The map is 2Fort, playing TF2's take on capture the flag, where two teams battle it out to snatch intelligence from one another's base. Check back tomorrow as another class goes under the EGTV spotlight.

Team Fortress 2 will release in the Orange Box on October 19th for 360 and PC, with the PS3 version firing in next month.
