Portal 2 Map Editor Beta is Live

The only thing that could possibly make Portal 2 any better is more portals! The first step to accomplishing this has been completed, as the level editor for the game has been released into beta. The map editor is an update to Source SDK, and with it you’ll be able to create single player and co-op maps, as well as new player skins, 3D models, sound effects and music. You can download it under the “Tools” tab in Steam and it includes;

  • 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
