Valve announce new Portal game – and it’s not what you’ve been hoping for
It’s not a joke or a fast cameo: there actually is a new Portal game popping out. The downside is it’s a Bridge Constructor spin-off.

Never thoughts Half-Life 3, there’s nearly actually by no means going to be a Portal 3. And even when there was a game known as that not one of the unique three writers nonetheless work at Valve, so it will by no means be the identical.
So as an alternative there’s Bridge Constructor Portal.
The title is clear fairly self-explanatory, however Bridge Constructor has been round since 2013 and already has a number of spin-offs, subtitled issues like Medieval and Trains.
How Portal got here to be concerned is at the moment a thriller, and it appears as if information of the game was leaked early and this was really meant to be an announcement at The Game Awards tomorrow.
That’s most likely why there’s solely a single screenshot and the video above doesn’t characteristic any gameplay.
You do get a really feel for how every thing will work although, with the game that includes portals (clearly), turrets, and the voice of Ellen McLain as GLaDOS.
Portal 2 was released as long ago as 2011 now, but that wasn’t technically the end of the story.
There have been plenty of cameos since, including in Bastion, Defense Grid: Awakening, Skyrim, Pinball FX 2 and Zen Pinball, and, most elaborately, Lego Dimensions.
Not only does GLaDOS and Wheatley feature prominently in the main storyline (including voiceovers from both Stephen Merchant and J. K. Simmons) but there was also a separate expansion pack that included a Lego Chell minifigure.
So in that sense Bridge Constructor Portal isn’t really that odd. Even if it obviously is.
