Portal 2

Valve was supposed to release the Portal 2 DLC for free by the summer's end. That was the good word from the much-loved developer/publisher. They missed their due date.

But, how could we possibly be mad?! This was free, additional content set to launch on all platforms for one of the best games released so far in 2011.

So, yes, they missed their window; however, not by much. Valve sent a press release out today in order to announce the new launch date for "Peer Review," the free batch of Portal 2 DLC. It will be available on all platforms on October 4th; that's next week.

Here's what you'll be doing, according to the release.

In "Peer Review", you and a friend will continue the story of loyal bots P-Body and Atlas as you puzzle your way through a mysterious new co-op test track and once again match wits with GLaDOS. The DLC also features a single player and co-op Challenge Mode, and leaderboards to compare Challenge Mode scores with friends and the Portal community.

More co-op goodness and a challenge mode? Yes! This just means the Crave staff will have to get back to Portal'ing over the weekend. It needs to be done.
