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.”

I am a big fan of good “Fan Films”, and this one is very good. It does start a little slow, but picks up and definitely leaves me wanting more.
