Were you thinking, "I really like playing TF2, but I wish there was a King of the Hill map set in a Chinese cityscape"? Well, your oddly specific and scarily prescient dreams have come true! Introducing Kong King - TF2’s first city-themed map! - created in collaboration with Sleeping Dogs and community member Valentin Levillain, aka 3Dnj.

We’re a little disappointed that Valentin is spending all of his time making TF2 maps and not fulfilling his true destiny as a roguishly handsome super-villain, but it gives us a chance to finish our costumes for our inevitable battle atop a snowy mountain where we will fight for the love of Cassandra Prosciutto.

You may be able to capture her physical form with your hyper-advanced laser-traps, Levillain, but you will never capture…her heart!

Nope, I don't like those hats at all. :?

Otherwise, woohoo, new map.

I love this koth map. I had a go at it last week. It might be a little intense with 24 players, but still fun and there were plenty of ways around the map too.

After playing this map, I can say it's the worst koth map they've put out since nucleus. Way too crowded, minisentries ruin everything, and you can't really get around it with rocket or stickyjumps because you'll just slam into the stupid signs hanging on the buildings.

Who do you think you are? Bleeding Action Man?!
