Portal 2 DLC #2 Announced

If you think all we care about around here is Blizzard Entertainment and their sweaty neck-beard convention (because, let’s face it, there’s probably a lot more of those on display there than anything else), think again! Valve announced today another add-on pack for Portal 2.  The update boasts an in-game editor that players can utilize to create and share their own test chambers and surely keep us all thinking with portals for a long time to come.  Even if you’re not the creative type, you’ve got to admit the Valve fanbase as a whole is.  I, for one, am really excited to see what people do with this editor.  Pictures of the editor and the official release below.

 

 

Valve Announces Portal 2 Update Featuring In-Game Editor

October 21, 2011 – Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Team Fortress, and Counter-Strike) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today announced the second game add-on for the year’s highest rated multiplatform game, Portal 2, is in development and targeted for release early next year.

This major update will feature an easy-to-use in-game map editor that will let users design, build and share their own single-player and co-op test chambers with the community, who will be able to view, play and vote on them with a simple click.

Portal 2 was released April 19, and currently holds a Metacritic score of 95%, making it the top-rated multiplatform game of 2011. Its first content update, “Peer Review”, came out two weeks ago.

A hilariously mind-bending adventure that challenges you to use wits over weaponry in a funhouse of diabolical science, Portal 2 features expansive single and cooperative multiplayer game modes.
