Gamers, start your engines: Valve has just announced the first add-on for this year’s highest-rated, multi-platform game. That’s right, Portal 2 DLC #1 is now in development and targeted for release this summer.
Valve announced on Friday that they are developing Portal 2 DLC #1, the first game add-on for the highly rated multi-platform title. The developers of such best-selling game franchises as Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Team Fortress and Counter-Strike will offer “new test chambers for players, leaderboards, challenge mode for single and multiplayer modes, and more” for Portal 2.
In a sort of “good news, bad news” kind of scenario, Valve will be offering Portal 2 DLC #1 free of charge for the Mac, PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 -- but you’ll have to wait until sometime this summer to get your hands on it. Sadly, Valve isn’t saying when, but fans can keep tabs on the release at the company’s website.
Billed as “a hilariously mind-bending adventure that challenges you to use wits over weaponry in a funhouse of diabolical science,” Portal 2 was released on April 19 and is currently ranked as the top rated multi-platform game of 2011, according to its Metacritic score of 95 percent.
Featuring expansive single and cooperative multiplayer game modes, Portal 2 also shot up to the number one spot in the U.K., Germany and the Nordic countries -- all in its first week of availability. Valve proudly claims that Portal 2 is the fastest-selling game in their arsenal since Half-Life 2.
