Default Portal 2

If you looked at my sig for the past week. It had a link to the new alternate ending to Portal. Valve has now OFFICIALLY announced that Portal 2 is coming!

Quote:
Forget all those alternative endings and teaser hints. It's official - Valve's just announced Portal 2. Although info is tight.

That's all though - it's the starvin' Marvin of annoucements. No info, accept of its "holiday" (summer) release. Literally, that's it.

Soz.

As previously reported, however, Valve has put out a job advertisement for a voice over role in Portal 2, which amazingly gives up some seemingly spoilerific info on the game's plot. Hit the link above for more on that.

Valve also recently updated Portal 1 with this teaser, and then this teaser which, after much nerdy research and deciphering, hinted at the sequel's imminent arrival.

Look out for more info and first shots soon.

I love the new ending. It totally makes all GLaDOS's crap worth it.

"Thank you for entering the party escort submission position."

Really, im excited. Playing portal itself was fun as heck (even though I had the 360 port, which wasn't bad at all, but felt I should of got the PC version.) and the announcement of portal 2 makes ya wonder whats it gonna be like.

This is probably a bit too hopeful, but maybe this will coincide with the release of the long-waited third episode of Half-Life 2 (is another Orange Box on the horizon?).

I figured I'd stick together all the information we have so far in spoiler tags from Game Informer and all the other sources we have (read: none).

[Non-spoilers first]
  • 2-player co-op with its own story and campaign, players are two scrap robots made from a Turret and Personality core.
  • Co-op will not have Voice Chat, but Valve is implementing a system that allows players to place "markers" to show teammates where to shoot portals etc.
  • Release date rumored to be 10/26/10.
  • Supposed to be much longer than the original.
  • Already been in the works for two years.
  • Portal 2 is to be one of the first Valve games to be released on the Mac.
[Spoilers below]

Spoiler: text

  • The game takes place centuries in the fture. How is currently unknown, but it can be assumed Chell was placed in a "stasis" by the robot added in the ending.
  • The Enrichment Center is extremely damaged and overgrown from centuries of plant growth and is actively being rebuilt as Chell goes through the testing.
  • Because of this, GLaDOS will sometimes make the player go out of the test chambers into "Behind the scenes" areas.
  • GLaDOS is making a return, and despite being "murdered" by Chell, encourages her to continue testing.
  • The cores from the end of the original play a much bigger role. The cores are used to reconstruct the enrichment center or help the player on their journey.
  • The only known core at this time is "Wheatley" (Pictured in my avatar), who guides you through the first levels of the game. He is responsible for accidentally reactivating GLaDOS after her many century sleep.
  • Many new test mechanics are being added like "Aerial Faith Plates", launching players and objects into the air, "Excursion Funnels", "Weighted Storage Balls", "Thermal Discouragement Beams", and "Pneumatic Diversity Vents", to name a few.
  • Chell no longer sports an orange jumpsuit, instead it's been replaced with a blue full body suit.
  • "Paint" is spread over some chambers that can alter the physics of objects or players covered in them. This paint can also leak through portals and be taken from area to area.
All of this was taken from the April Game Informer magazine.

Source game voice chat is kinda lacking anyways, I'm happy with my 360 party chat/TS3, really. Also, Steam has voice chat built in either way.

Also, dear God yes Portal 2.

I predict a deathmatch mod, with the advent of being able to do multiplayer.

I already knew before the new ending was revealed. I was helping the team on the Steam Forums with the analysis with the sound WAV files, and we came up with a map of images from Portal 2.

From what we gathered, It will have bigger robots, but may be the two robots from Co-Op mode.

Those two robots are indeed the ones from co-op.


One was made from a personality core, the other one was made from a turret.
It's rumoured (although blatantly obvious) that one of them will be masculine with the other feminine.

Also the Portal ARG was probably the coolest thing Valve has ever done. <3

Considering that they still have stuff to work on (L4D2, Half Life 2 Ep.3, and that promised updated for the 360 port for TF2) I doubt we'll expect another box. Though the thought of one will be lovely.

EDIT: Also if you don't mind me saying, those two bots make quite the couple. Expect lots of pair ups to come from the fan base...

Never said I believed it will happen. Everyone knows that it's a waste of an update even if they actually pulled it off. But that doesn't mean it still isn't on their "to do list."

Finally! Portal 2 is coming, and with CO-OP no less. It seems, though, that GLaDOS Doesn't share the feeling she has for Chell with the co-op robots, she instead tells each robot that the other is dead weight, how mean. Too bad they didn't do 4-player co-op with a companion cube and a radio for the other robots. (Ah, to dream...)

Well, I still can't wait for this to come out, because of the longer gameplay.

Longer...shorter... as long as I can do crazy stuff in the game, I'll enjoy it endlessly.

On the issue (pun intended) of Game Informer, they have a hub set up to release new information every two days.

I'm sorry, but I think this huge bump is necessary, Portal 2 is drawing nearer...
