When I tried making my own level for Portal 2, I made a boxed-in room, complete with the scratched white padded walls we’ve come to know and love. I also added a marker for where the player would be begin and, well, that was it. It was safe to say I pretty much sucked at using that level editor.
A while ago (last year), according to IGN PC, Valve announced a second add-on for Portal 2 along with 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”. I was stoked. More content, plus a level editor that I could finally use to test human subjects with my twisted experiments? I was in.
So finally, Valve has announced a release date for the new piece of DLC – for free of course – along with the level editor. “Perpetual Testing” and the just previously mentioned level editor will hit Steam on May 8th. And you don’t even have to leave the game to create your own Portal 2 puzzles. Plus, you can share your creations through the Steam Workshop. Ready for another round of Portal 2?
