It’s only the first piece of DLC that Valve isn’t charging you for, but we’re talking multiplayer and single player content for all three platforms. The update will contain “new test chambers for players, leaderboards, challenge mode for single and multiplayer modes, and more.” Not only that, but Valve even got Microsoft to agree to let players have the update for free. Probably by getting Sony to do it first.
The DLC is supposed to be hitting this Summer, but we all know how Valve employees get lost through the piles of money that come bursting into the Valve office after every major release and development gets sort of sidetracked. Hopefully, Portal 2 has made Gabe Newell enough money to line the corridors with life preservers this time around. It’s certainly made enough for him to be generous to the fans and we tend to notice these things. Well, until the next ARG marketing campaign, anyway.
