The witty and charming Portal 2 has sold more than 4 million units since its launch over a year ago, and Valve have just ensured that the community will keep it thriving for years to come.
The Perpetual Testing Initiative DLC has officially dropped today, offering players a map-editing tools so simple, even Kenni could handle them. Create and share your testing chambers amongst friends, and keep Portal 2 interesting forever.
Valve had previously offered the Hammer editor, which is the in-house editor that they used to create the game, for tech-savvy gamers to mess around with. Without a proper distribution channel, and the entry level requirements for creators, most of these player-created maps have gone unnoticed.
With the new editor however, those who know what they are doing will still be able to access the Hammer toolset, but at least now everyone can try their hand at challenging puzzles.
Simply login to Steam and update your Portal 2 install to access the new features. Don't forget to jump into our community test chambers thread to discuss and share your creations.
