Team Fortress enjoys user boost

Counter-Strike’s deeply-embedded position as the most played Steam game has finally been dismantled, following a daring and controversial change in pricing policy from Valve.

The Washington-based company rocked the games industry last week by re-releasing Team Fortress 2 as a free-to-play game.

That triple-A game, at the time of writing, has shot to the top of the Steam most-played list, and continues to grow.

Today’s Team Fortress 2 user levels peaked at 97,917 concurrent users, up further still from about 70,000 users on Friday.
