Valve has hit the nail on the head with its newly-announced second set of Portal 2 DLC. It will give the community the one thing which has been missing from the series in the past: An in-game editor! When it’s released, we’ll all be able to bring out our inner GLaDOS in order to craft challenging single player and co-operative test chambers.
If you’re into creating your own levels, then this content announcement surely has you on the roof with excitement. After all, who hasn’t wanted to create devious and challenging Portal 2 tests for the rest of the community to tackle?
It’ll be extremely interesting to see what the community creates when this update launches sometime in the future.
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.
