Posted on April 29, 2011, Phil Hornshaw Valve Confirms Free Portal 2 DLC This Summer
Valve just confirmed in a press release that the Portal 2 DLC #1 pack would include “new test chambers for players, leaderboards, challenge mode for single and multiplayer modes, and more.”
Let me be the first to scream in girlish delight at the possibilities of a challenge mode. In my Portal 2 review, one of the biggest disappointments I felt was the lack of super-hard challenges like those that made it into the original Portal, and Achievements and Trophies to match. Looks like Valve heard my bitter sobbing and is remedying the situation.
We’ll let you know when more information about DLC #1 hits the Internet, and most importantly, when it will be available for download. Meantime, finish up the game as it shipped with our in-depth Portal 2 Strategy Guide.
