Portal 2 Free DLC Announced

Valve officially announces plans for the first DLC for Portal 2, their puzzle/platformer sequel, which will be a free release on all platforms, adding new test chambers, leaderboards, challenge modes, and more. As was revealed earlier this week, this downloadable content is expected this summer (Valve Time). Here's word:
April 29, 2011 - Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Team Fortress, and Counter-Strike) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today announced the first game add-on for the year's highest rated multiplatform game, Portal 2, is in development and targeted for this summer.

Portal 2 DLC #1 will offer new test chambers for players, leaderboards, challenge mode for single and multiplayer modes, and more.

Targeted for release this summer, Portal 2 DLC #1 will be offered free of charge for the PC, Mac, Xbox 360, and PS3.

Portal 2 was released April 19 and currently holds a Metacritic score of 95%, making it the top rated multiplatform game of 2011. Portal also captured the number 1 chart position in the UK, Germany, and the Nordic countries during its first week of availability, making it the fastest-selling Valve release since Half-Life 2.

A hilariously mind-bending adventure that challenges you to use wits over weaponry in a funhouse of diabolical science, Portal 2 features expansive single and cooperative multiplayer game modes.

Portal 2 turned out to be much easier than Portal 1, requiring no twitch whatsoever, and no challenge maps, so I was sort of disappointed in the game. (Though the dialogue was, of course, brilliant.)

I agree with complaints that Portal 2 was too easy but easier than Portal 1? Really? The first 15 chambers in Portal 1 were basically tutorial levels. Hell, you don't even get a fully functional Portal gun until the 11th chamber, I believe. Only the last four chambers offered any challenge whatsoever. Portal 2 had a much more consistent difficulty level which, while still too easy, was more challenging than the majority of Portal 1. The co-op levels are also harder than the single-player levels and do require some twitch skills.

As for the DLC, I wouldn't expect too much. Keep in mind that each chamber is going to be bottlenecked by consoles so they aren't going to require crazy twitch skills. If you want truly challenging maps (both in terms of puzzle-solving and twitch skills), you'll have to wait for the community maps.
