"I'm willing to put our differences behind us. For science. You monster."
Valve today announced that Portal 2 owners will be treated to a free DLC toolkit that will allow levels to be created by everyone. The download, called "The Perpetual Testing Initiative" will be available on both PC and Mac, but there's no word on whether the toolkit will be extended to Xbox 360 or PS3 owners (most likely not). The puzzle maker will allow Portal 2 owners both to create new levels, and to share those levels with other players. The Steam Workshop will play host to the user created levels, and players will be able to search for new challenges there and post reviews of levels that they play.
As you can see in the videos below from E3 2010, there are several worthy additions to Portal in Portal 2, including several new play surfaces. What do I mean by "play surfaces"? Through each puzzle / room, there is the opportunity to dump a substance on the ground. Some substances / paints will make you go dizzingly fast, some help you bounce through the air, and so on. There's also a variety of new ways of getting through a level, using suction and wind, a laster tunnel (you'll have to see it to understand), and a whole lot more. People using The Perpetual Testing Initiative will be able to use these new surface modifiers to make levels play with an infinite amount of differentiation.
