Valve, Headup Games, and ClockStone Software today announced that the next iteration of the popular Portal franchise is launching later this month, in the form of a spin-off game tied into the Bridge Constructor puzzle series (via TouchArcade). Bridge Constructor Portal will launch on December 20 for macOS, iOS, Android, Windows, and Linux, and then console versions will follow in 2018.

The companies said that the new game "fully embraces the Portal license" while primarily focusing on the puzzle and physics elements of Bridge Constructor. Similar to past Bridge Constructor games, players will have to build bridges to connect pathways and safely traverse across chasms without falling to their death.

"Hello and welcome back to the Aperture Science computer-aided enrichment center."

We welcome all lucky applicants to Bridge Constructor Portal with our new vehicle-based test chambers, Quantum Tunnels and patented Aperture technology! For the last year we've been secretly working in our underground labs on the next iteration of the million-selling Bridge Constructor series. This new stand-alone title will release on PC, MacOS, Linux, mobile devices, and console, and fully embraces the Portal license, one of the most beloved video game franchises of the last decade.

The Portal elements come in with the gaming being set in Aperture Laboratories, as well as various in-game items that players can use to solve puzzles, like the companion cube and the repulsion and propulsion gels from Portal 2. GLaDOS will also narrate your progress and failure as you make your way through the new vehicle-based test chambers.


The price of Bridge Constructor Portal hasn't yet been disclosed, but those interested can expect more information ahead of the game's release. Bridge Constructor's paid iOS app is currently priced at $1.99 [Direct Link], so players can likely expect a price point above $2, considering that the game will also be launching simultaneously on Mac and PC as well as eventually coming to consoles, like the Nintendo Switch.

Looks good. To me, Portal is a timeless treasure of a game, up there with RCT, BF2 (original), AoE2, and a few others.
And, imo, Portal 2 is even better than the first. One of my absolute favorite game worlds of all time. Not to mention the writing, voice acting, gameplay, etc, etc, etc.

THREE turrets... a bridge that broke in HALVE... and GLaDOS still ALIVE, thats confirmation of Half-Life 3 for sure.

THREE + HALVE + ALIVE = Half-Life 3
Yeah I’m saying that ever since Half-Life 3 was confirmed to be dead by the lead writer/designer, those jokes just didn’t have the same humor.

VALVE MAKES GAMES?!?!?? ;)
This isn't a Valve game. Just uses the Portal IP.

Valve has that card game coming, and are working on three full-length VR games. Who knows when/if they will be released. Valve Time.
