    I really hope it isnt to deserty, but in all realism it probably will be quite a dry dusty environment, as they said earlier its a trade off between how much new stuff they have to make and little we want to download.
    I have faith that it will be new enough.

    If this is true I'll delay texturing/designing my map so i can use the new environment in it :D.

    I think he is joking on the "a hidden silo in a farm." one, since almost every TF2 map has "a hidden silo in a farm."

    Seeing those pictures in the blog sparked my memory from reading a few pages on TF2wiki.net a couple of days earlier. Take a look here.

    http://tf2wiki.net/wiki/Maps

    On the bottom of the page. See something familiar? It has been there since before the blog post was up, which means that those pictures are definitely NOT new, and my guess is that they probably haven't got anything to do with Valve's upcoming new themes.

    "Revision as of 15:44, 6 December 2007" Whoa, so that pic was added to the WiKi back in December. Either Valve has been working on these unreleased maps since before then or they didn't want to give away the new materials they're actually adding. The other possibility is that Valve didn't actually have anything to show off as no new content has even been made yet. I hope it's my 2nd guess as the pics look like they were conceptual designs for Well and Granary...

    I'd like the new environment to be some sort of hydro dam disguised as a train yard which is actually a missile silo hidden in a farm which looks like a fort, or more specifically, two forts, connected by a series of mining tunnels.

    Well, the last update of content having nothing to do with player achievements were 2 maps the community already had so I'm not holding my breath for anything major.

    Goldrush was a new environment. Badlands was a new environment. This new map will be a new environment. It'll be a new skybox, a new rockwall, and a new rockground, with a new desert shrub and a new hazmat barrel.

    And maybe a new overlay for whichever company "owns" the new map.

    Whilst I think you're reasonably right nineaxis I think it will be slightly more than that

    LOL Dox.

    Ok guys, I think it looks more like an abandonded air base or some sort of military installation. Eh, eh?

    I'm still waiting for a Area 51 Abandoned Secret Air Base in the Desert map that'd fit perfectly into the TF2 theme.

    I just hope we get just a tiny bit of green in these environments. Even if it's just farm grass or something. Fighting over random bits of land in a farm setting could be very satisfying
