Free Portal 2 DLC Next Month

Valve announces plans to release Perpetual Testing Initiative on May 8th as free DLC for the Windows and OS X editions of Portal 2, the first-person puzzle sequel:

Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Half-Life and Counter-Strike) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today announced the free Portal 2 DLC titled "Perpetual Testing Initiative" will be available for the PC and Mac on May 8th.

The "Perpetual Testing Initiative" allows players to easily create, share, and play Portal 2 puzzles. The Initiative comes with a simplified puzzle maker that allows that creation of mind-bending puzzles without ever leaving the game.

The puzzle maker can directly publish maps to the Steam Workshop where users can browse, vote on, and select to play them. Selected puzzles will automatically be downloaded and installed inside Portal 2.

Portal 2 holds a Metacritic score of 95% and has been awarded numerous Game of Year awards. It features expansive single and cooperative multiplayer game modes.

I don't like the first Portal more but that is one aspect I did enjoy more. Unless I'm misremembering Portal 2 didn't even have the "solve in least amount of portals" challenges did it? That was actually my favorite part of Portal 1.

There were no least amount of portals puzzles which was a shame.

Well, there weren't with the base game, no... However, that was one of the things added with the previous DLC (mostly consisting of new co-op levels): challenge mode, which has both least portals and least time challenges...

Also, any word on if this new DLC is coming to the consoles too?? I know I'll be burned as a heretic, but I played P2 on Xbox360, and I desperately want this DLC! (Though, what I really want is more official single-player levels...) (And, no, I can't just "get the PC version", because I don't have a Windows machine... My PC is a pretty old Linux box used solely for writing code for work... If Valve really comes through on Linux Steam and releases a Linux Portal 2, then fine, I'll rebuy it, and upgrade my hardware if needed then!)
