We're just three short days away from the Wednesday release of the final Team Fortress 2 "Meet the Team" short, Meet the Pyro. Arriving alongside it will be a "massive update" to celebrate, Valve has announced.

Dubbed "The Pyromania Update", day one reveals a brand new Doomsday map which introduces a brand new game mode that lets you relive one of the darkest days in Team Fortress history.

According to the description:

Doomsday pits BLU against RED, with only one team getting the honor of transporting a suitcase nuke full of recalled Mann Co. Australium to American monkeynaut Poopy Joe’s rocket, so he can blast off and hunt down Soviet space chimp Vladimir Bananas. It's the same spirit of competitive enterprise that stalled the moon landing by three years when Buzz Aldrin suplexed Neil Armstrong into a pile of folding chairs at Astromania '69! Both teams will attempt to get the necessary fuel up a preposterously slow-moving elevator and into Poopy Joe’s Australium-powered rocket to the stars.

In addition to the new map and gameplay mode, the Team Fortress 2 update will add 11 new achievements which have been named, but details not revealed. Valve has promised a "bunch of new stuff" this week leading up to the premiere of Meet he Pyro this Wednesday. Be sure to check back every day!
