Portal Returns…. As A Bridge Construction Simulator?

I think you could make a strong argument that Portal is the flawless video game, and the world-building that was done in Portal 2 has left me absolutely starving for anything new involving Aperture Science. No, the company that used to be famous for making games instead of selling them didn't announced Portal 3, but it did announce Bridge Constructor Portal.

It may not be the Portal sequel that fans have been hoping for since Portal 2's 2011 release, but it's certainly an unexpected mash-up. You can pick up the bundle on Steam for $30, although it's often on sale for far less than that.

Recognisable elements of the series have appeared in some VR projects, and Portal characters also featured in their own dedicated part of toys-to-life game Lego Dimensions in 2015. You solve puzzles via clever placement of these portals and jumping (or walking) through one to come out the other. It's really cool that Valve is collaborating with Headup Games for this title. Bridge Constructor Portal combines the standout gameplay mechanic of Portal with engineering bridges to make some truly interesting creations! A console version for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One will follow in "early 2018". Players will explore never-before-seen areas of the Aperture Science Labs and be reunited with GLaDOS, the occasionally murderous computer companion who guided them through the original game.

Bridge Constructor Portal is expected to come out in two weeks, on the 20th of December, for PC, Android, and iOS.
