Portal 2
« on: March 05, 2010, 10:40:43 am »
Following the mysterious Portal updates, Valve announced today that Portal 2 is in the works, to be released this holiday season, which I take will be either Summer 2010 or Christmas 2010.




Quote from: Steam Announcement
Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Left 4 Dead, Counter-Strike and Half-Life) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today announced Portal 2 for shipment this coming holiday season.

Portal 2 is the sequel to 2007's Portal, which won 70 industry achievement awards.

For more information, please visit www.steamgames.com
Steam announcement

Quote from: Game Informer
Valve is known for making quality first-person shooters: The Half-Life series redefined how players think about the FPS genre, while titles like Team Fortress and Left 4 Dead took team-oriented multiplayer action to a whole new level. But among Valve's stable of popular shooters, one game stands alone: the mind-bending puzzler, Portal. A small-scale experiment that was squeezed into 2007's The Orange Box alongside some powerful heavyweights, the love Portal received from fans was beyond anything Valve could have imagined, winning it a full-fledged, standalone sequel. Our 12-page cover story gives you the first details on Portal 2's new gameplay mechanics, storyline, and some surprising new twists.

No, they said that Portal 2 was a possibility but they never confirmed it, now we have a confirmation and a possible release date.

I'm a bit disappointed it's not Ep3, though we know that'll never come out ::)

There's this GameStop page too, with a description:
Quote from: GameStop
Coming this holiday. Portal 2 is the sequel to 2007's Game of the Year and draws from the award-winning formula of innovative game play, story, and music that earned the original over 70 industry accolades. Features single and multiplayer co-op modes. The single-player portion of Portal 2 introduces a cast of dynamic new characters, a host of fresh puzzle elements, and a much larger set of devious test chambers. Players will explore never-before-seen areas of the Aperture Science Labs and be reunited with GLaDOS, the occasionally murderous computer companion who guided them through the original game. The game’s two-player cooperative mode features its own entirely separate campaign with a unique story, test chambers, and two new player characters. This new mode forces players to reconsider everything they thought they knew about portals. Success will require them to not just act cooperatively, but to think cooperatively.
So co-op mode confirmed, and the game will have two stories.

Hmmm, two new characters, eh? Sounds interesting, but...What happened to Chell?

Find all the radios, then beat the game...making sure to watch the final cutscene. You'll get some idea, I suppose.

I believe cake was made out of her.

Do you only get that ending if you find all the radios?
