Valve Announces Portal 2 Update Featuring In-Game Editor

This seriously just made my day! It’s the only thing I thought the game was missing at release.

“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.”

    That’s very cool. I hope it’s integrated into the console versions of the game.

    I always though that a puzzle game like portal needed a map editor for the community. It seemed silly not to release a good one with the game.

    Oh I’m certainly going to have some fun with this! This didn’t even needed to be free, even better!

    Wow big surprise that it’s FREE. They could’ve easily charged 5 bucks but they DIDN”T! Ye-ay Valve :D

    Great news — a welcome addition to any title. I can’t imagine doing any serious map editing on a console, though.
