Earlier this month, Valve released the first batch of Portal 2 DLC. It was free, and largely centered on everyone's favorite adorable cooperative robots. If you're wondering what Valve has up their DLSleeves, it isn't some new scenarios or some kind of epilogue, but an "in-game editor," which means they are releasing infinite levels forever. Sure, most of them will be in the shape of penises, and some will be specifically just to frustrate players, but anyone who plays games with level editors, like LittleBigPlanet or StarCraft II, knows full well that some of the armchair level designers out there are as talented as the developers themselves. So, there's a lot to look forward to.
If you're worried about sifting through all of the crap to get to the brilliant, Valve will be introducing community elements to the DLC as well, allowing players to vote on levels, which, surprisingly, ends up actually differentiating the crap from the brilliant more often than not. For those who are a little sore that the first batch of DLC was largely focused on cooperative play, the level editor will allow both single and multiplayer levels, so that's more good news. The DLC is targeted to release sometime early next year.
Check out the press release after the break, and spend your Friday night thinking with portals.
