Portal 2′s Next DLC Features an In-Game Map Editor
With the first Portal 2 downloadable content pack released earlier this month, Valve now has its sights set on the next add-on for the game. Rather than simply providing new test chambers itself, Valve will instead deliver an “easy-to-use in-game map editor” for players to create and share their own test chambers.
Tools do already exist for players to create test chambers, character skins, sound effects, music, and more. The catch is they aren’t especially easy to use; if you’re just an average gamer with an idea for how a chamber could work, it’s not a simple matter of throwing something together. The new editor — based on the very simple description Valve provided — sounds as if it should make creating a chamber much more approachable.
