Amidst the sparingly released details about Portal 2 from Valve on Friday, we found a little bit more info over on the EB Games website. Listed on the site is a release date for Portal, the company lists the game for sale on October 26th, 2010. Although when you first clicked on the link it brought an error page, this has since been fixed.
In place of this error page is a full product description page for Portal 2 with details that Valve or Game Informer haven’t dropped yet.
“Coming this holiday. Portal 2 is the sequel to 2007’s Game of the Year and draws from the award-winning formula of innovative game play, story, and music that earned the original over 70 industry accolades. Features single and multiplayer co-op modes. The single-player portion of Portal 2 introduces a cast of dynamic new characters, a host of fresh puzzle elements, and a much larger set of devious test chambers.
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. The game’s two-player cooperative mode features its own entirely separate campaign with a unique story, test chambers, and two new player characters. This new mode forces players to reconsider everything they thought they knew about portals. Success will require them to not just act cooperatively, but to think cooperatively.”
Game Informer also revealed that they will have a preview of the title in their April issue of the magazine. As always the cover art is superb. Take a look at the gallery below.
