If you’re tired of waiting around for a third Portal game, there is a (sort of) solution out there. Until Valve takes it upon itself to carry on with the series, fans will take the reins in an unofficial capacity. And that’s exactly what’s happened here.
Portal: Revolution is not exactly a threequel to the Portal universe. Instead, it’s actually a prequel that takes place before the events of the second game. Brought to us by Second Face Software, this mod comes complete with eight hours of gameplay, which includes more than 40 new test chambers. You can also check out the special “100,000 trailer views” Q&A video while you’re at it.
The above trailer almost looks like an official new entry or something Valve would put together. As a community project, it definitely looks impressive, fitting in between the two installments with its own story and characters. It should be noted that you will need a legitimate copy of Portal 2 before you can use this free mod.
You can always depend on the fan base to keep video game universes alive. Portal 2 recently got its own VR mode, thanks to the dedicated community, which is good seeing as Portal 3 is probably never going to happen. Prove me wrong though, Valve. Prove me wrong.
We’ve circled this proverbial airport many times before, especially when it comes to Half-Life. The continuation of Gordon Freeman’s story is a dream many are struggling to hold onto these days.
Without any official sequels in the make that we’re aware of, we can at least take solace in the unofficial stuff that’s out there. Portal: Revolution is just one example of people showing they’re not ready to accept Valve’s unwillingness to bring us something new (Half-Life: Alyx notwithstanding, of course).Read more on destructoid.com
