The Sniper next for TF2 makeover

Plus: X360 patch "still being worked on".

Valve says the Sniper class revamp will arrive in "the largest Team Fortress 2 update yet", which has new maps and gameplay tweaks galore.

There's no date for that, but Valve promises us an additional patch containing content for all TF2 classes before then, according to the TF2 blog.

The developer also offers an insight into the progress of the Xbox 360 patch.

"The Xbox 360 update is still being worked on," writes Greg Cherlin. "If you're wondering what's taking so long, since the content is 'done' on the PC already, it's mostly been around fitting it all onto the Xbox.

"The original version of TF2 in the Orange Box was very close to the Xbox 360 memory limit, and all the additional TF2 content we've produced has pushed well beyond it.

"We've found a couple of nifty ways to get back a bunch of that memory, but it's turned out to be a lot of work, and that's what most of our time is being spent on. In the meantime, we're going to get a code update out to address the server cheating that's going on," he adds.

The Sniper, incidentally, will be the fifth class addressed by Valve so far; the Scout, the Heavy, the Pyro and the Medic have all been given new toys already.
