The Portal 2 Authoring Tools include versions of the same tools we used to make Portal 2. They'll allow you to create your own singleplayer and co-op maps, new character skins, 3D models, sound effects, and music.
Here's what's included:
- Updated version of Hammer, the Source level editor
- Updated Faceposer
- Example maps and instances to help build new maps
- Updated suite of command-line compiling utilities
If you want to get started on the beta, we suggest joining two mailing lists:
Portal 2 List
General Source List
This is beta software, so if you have any problems or issues, please send them to the p2mapper email list.
Get out there and show us what devious puzzles you've all been brainstorming!

The idea of making my own Portal 2 maps filled me with glee and my first thought was, "This is why Valve is awesome." Then it occurred to me that 10, 15 years ago, this was the standard. It's not that Valve has gotten better than any other video game companies, they just haven't devolved.

The first and second place ranking maps will receive the following prizes:
Good to see Valve still values it's mapping community.

Portal Free until the 20th! If for some reason you don't already own Portal you can download/install and play for free!
But only until the 20th of this month. So if you miss it you miss it! but if you get it then it's yours forever!

Portal 2 DLC out Wednesday, adds new co-op missions, challenge mode and leaderboards
Wednesday October 5. That will be the day in which the Portal 2 Peer Review DLC will be released. The free mission pack will extend Atlas and Peabody's co-op adventure and add a new challenge mode for single player and co-op maps.
Back when Valve announced first DLC pack, they also mentioned leaderboards so all your friends and a bunch of strangers will all know how exactly how smart you are (or aren't), which explains the 'Peer Review' handle. That means your performance will be graded by both Glados AND the conglomerate hivemind of the The Internet. NO PRESSURE.
In more 'free stuff from Valve' news, the third volume of the Portal 2 soundtrack, Songs to Test By, is available now on the Portal 2 site, featuring such classic hits as Some Assembly Required, Your Precious Moon and Robots FTW.
