Portal 2 Available for Pre-Order

Posted By | On 14th, Feb. 2011 Under News | Follow This Author @GamingBoltTweet


Valve today announced that retailers and Steam are now accepting pre-order reservations for Portal 2, the epic sequel named the “Most Anticipated Game of 2011” at the Spike TV Video Game Awards.

Special pre-order offers vary at participating outlets around the world and include a variety of dollars off and/or exclusive in-game content for those who reserve the game for purchase before it is released the week of April 18. These include $5 off the full price, exclusive in-game skins for the coop bots (Atlas and P-body), and more. Check your favorite outlet for details.

“Portal 2 is shaping up to be the most innovative title in Valve’s history, and to be a much larger experience than we originally planned,” said Doug Lombardi, vice president of marketing at Valve. “As such, we are aggressively promoting the title with more retail promotions than we have put behind any prior release.”

Using a highly experimental portal device, you’ll once again face off against a lethally inventive, power-mad A.I. named GLaDOS. And this time you won’t be alone. Meet an expanded cast of characters as you think your way through dangerous, never-before-seen areas of Aperture Laboratories.

Portal 2 releases this April on the PS3, X360 and the PC

Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

  • Shadow-Man_4

    To be honest, I didn’t find this game interesting enough. Nothing so special about it.

    • noxtics

      was this based on just a read of the game or actually playing through? because portal does offer a very unique brand of game play and puzzles

  • Honestly, I’m psyched about this game! I loved Portal and Portal 2 will most probably overgo all my expectations and more 🙂

    • dh4645

      how did you love portal 2? it’s not even out yet. ha. i’m getting the PS3 version. why wouldn’t you…you get the pc version for free.

    • Pixolator

      well he says he loved portal and assumes that the sequel will be great.

    • dh4645

      i know, i was just busting on him. it just sounded funny. i’m sure portal 2 will be epic

  • yodathe3rd

    Can’t wait for this one to come out the first was awesome speed runs on steam are beast and now its going to be even better i will be getting the ps3 version so i can get the pc for free but if steam has a better deal ill just stick to pc because nothing beats out mouse and keyboard.

    • Pixolator

      talking about speed run, I still remember this guy finished the whole game in 8 or 10 minutes, that was crazy cause it took me a good 4 hours to finish the whole game.

    • noxtics

      man serious kudos to the people who can finish games quick …i don’t know i just don’t have that talent …what i do very well is prolong the game lol ..if it’s good i’ll take my sweet time

  • Thatruth86

    sounds like a pre order to me but too bad im not going too many great games its hard to choose when u on a budget

    • yodathe3rd

      i hear you there truth its hard when deciding what games to buy when budget is in there a good way to go is kmart gamer they have awesome deals on games and no this is not spam either they release deals each week i saved myself a couple hundred dollars last year.

    • Pixolator

      I’m looking forward for a deal also, would like to see a collector’s edition before putting my 5 box for an order.

    • Thatruth86

      lol word shit money is tight they should give better deals when trading in a game .. portal one was cool i never beat it though i just stopped playing it had it for pc

    • noxtics

      well if anything you will be busy with all these games ..you can just finish all the stuff you get now and then down the road when the prices have come down and they’re “bargin bin” status grab them for much less.

  • Bone_Apart216

    Never heard of it before it was plastered on a Game Informer I got. Looks really interesting, story and gameplay, but there’s too much competition for my wallet this year. I’ll have to pass on this one.

    @dh4645
    I think he typed a run-on sentence there, don’t think he was claiming to have played it yet.

    • noxtics

      the story behind portal is really rather awesome …a group of student came up with this while in college and valve got wind of the game.

      they liked the idea so much they hired the guys and bought the rights to the game …and the rest as they say is history lol

  • Thatruth86

    speaking of portal one of the greatest puzzle games ever made i came upon this man funny man months ago who makes great videos you guys should watch it if not already seen .http://www.youtube.com/user/freddiew#p/u/47/3L-rrkyvApU

  • kold
