Valve have finally released 'the Pyro Patch' for the king of free to play shooters, Team Fortress 2. It's a huge update with some of the most hilarious/disturbing items released so far. The most signifiacnt of these are the the Pyrovision Goggles; if you login at any point between the patch release and the 05 July you'll earn yourself these snazzy specs which let you see the world how the way a Pyro sees the world... I warn you, it's not pretty.
If you miss the window then fear not, if you dominate anyone wearing the goggles in game you'll earn your very own pair. Viewing the world through 'Pyro-Vision' is to take a walk through a demented mind, one that is both hysterical but at the same time oddly disturbing if you sit and think about it for too long. This includes seeing burning players 'sparkle', having the screams of players being butchered turned into high pitched giggles and blood effects turning into confetti, balloons and streamers.
There is also the release of several Pyro items that are only visible on the character model when seen through the Pyrovision Goggles, including a new flamethrower (affectionately known as the Rainblower) and melee weapon (the Lollichop). Oh and of course Pyroland's Municipal Ombudsman - The Balloonicorn.
Naturally it wouldn't be a TF2 class update without one of their brilliant videos, so without further ado - Meet the Pyro!
