We won’t have to wait too much longer, as Valve announced Wed morning Portal 2’s release date to be February 9th of next year. Being a huge fan of the original, I’ll definitely be putting this one on my list. Inherently, I’ll be opting for the PC or Mac version, as a game like Portal, in my humble opinion, is best played with a mouse. They’re also releasing for PS3 and Xbox 360.
There’s some awesome new elements they’re rolling out with this one, including Wheatley, a friendly British robot that will accompany you, voiced by Stephen Merchant (writer for both versions of The Office, and also starred in a few episodes of the US version).
They’ve also added features, among others, like Repulsion and Propulsion Gel, an Excursion Funnel, the Pneumatic Diversity Vent, the Aerial Faith Plate, and a Thermal Discouragement Beam. For trailers showcasing these features and more, check out Portal’s official teaser site here.
