Team Fortress 2’s Heavy Goes Under the Knife in Surgeon Simulator 2013


Of all the Team Fortress 2 crossovers on Steam, this has to be the best yet.

Bossa Studios has joined forces with Valve to put characters from Team Fortress 2 on the operating table in the dark, demented and absolutely hilarious indie game Surgeon Simulator 2013.


Suffering from deadly wounds received on the front lines of battle, the Heavy finds himself replacing patient Bob to go under the knife as the Medic steps in for the game’s resident surgeon from hell, Nigel Burke, to perform life-or-death organ transplants using familiar weapons and tools found in Valve’s hit multiplayer shooter.


Accessing the Team Fortress 2 content is cleverly integrated into the reception desk home menu. There is a VHS tape next to a TV and all’s you gotta do is pick up the tape and pop it into the player (which of course is WAY harder than it sounds), at which point a “Meet The Medic” intro appears and the Heavy surgeries begin. I’ve taken a few of my own screenshots here so you can get an idea of the setup.


Best news of all, this Team Fortress 2 crossover content is completely free to download. Own Surgeon Simulator 2013? You’re good to go. New achievements have even been added, including one called “Valve Actually Let Us Do This?” Yes, they did!
