It’s been a while since the release of Portal 2. Since then there hasn’t been a “proper” game in the series released. We’ve had a couple off-shoots in Lego Dimensions and even a trip into VR with “The Lab”. Ahead of Thursday’s Video Game Awards word leaked of a new Portal game in the works. Since then full confirmation has come out that, yes, we are getting a new game in the Portal universe, just not one many people expected.
Valve is working with developer Clockstone Software on another type of Portal game. This one melds the mind bending puzzles the series is famous for with Bridge Constructor. The new game, called Bridge Constructor: Portal, will be released for mobile platforms, PC, and Mac later this month on Dec. 20th. The game will then come to PS4, Xbox One, and Switch early in 2018.
What do you think of this? I’ll be checking it out. Just seeing GLaDOS in the trailer got my unexpectedly excited to be in this world again. I’m not entirely sure what to expect, but I’m willing to give this one a shot.
