Publisher Headup Games has announced a Portal spin-off called Bridge Constructor Portal, due out for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, PC, and mobile platforms.
It seems like a match made in heaven: there aren’t many puzzle or construction scenarios that wouldn’t be improved – or at least made significantly more entertaining – with the introduction of space-manipulating portals.
Below is a teaser trailer, which doesn’t show any gameplay, but does give you an idea of the game’s vibe:
As you can see – or rather, hear – Ellen McLain is returning to voice everyone’s favourite psychopathic AI GLaDOS.
On top of the trailer, there is also a single screenshot which shows off some of the chaotic puzzle-solving:
Headup Games also released the following statement with its announcement:
“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.
Bridge Constructor Portal will blend the laws of structural engineering and technology straight from Aperture Laboratories into an exciting new game experience, all under the demanding gaze of GLaDOS.
Bridge Constructor Portal will be released on December 20 2017 for Windows, MacOS and Linux as well as for mobile devices. The console versions will follow in early 2018.”
