Bridge Constructor Portal Taking You to Aperture Sciences in 2018

Bridge Constructor Portal Taking You to Aperture Sciences in 2018

Valve fans have been waiting more than six years for a sequel to 2011's Portal 2, and today Valve (kind of) finally announced one.

Valve's Portal series has a new entry - sort-of - in the form of a Bridge Constructor spin-off. No, it's not Portal 3, but Bridge Constructor is a fun game. Though who knows, everyone loves a good puzzle game and with it touching base with Portal perhaps Bridge Constructor Portal may surprise us all.

Bridge Constructor Portal will be released on December 20, 2017, for Windows, MacOS, and Linux as well as for mobile devices. The licensed expansion of the Portal series pulls the design characters from those popular games into brand new gameplay set in the world of Aperture Laboratories. In it, players construct spans and supports to allow traffic to flow from one part of the level to another.

Those mechanics have found a sizable audience, as Bridge Constructor has surpassed more than a million copies sold.

Bridge Constructor Portal has everything you'd want from a not-Portal, Portal game.

Best of all, GLaDOS makes its return to instruct and mock you in that deadpan computer voice throughout the game. Well, it's a physics puzzler much like the previous Bridge Constructors. Game console versions are due in 2018.

It probably isn't where anybody expected Portal to go after Portal 2 and VR playground The Lab, but sometimes you've gotta build a few bridges to get where you're really going.
