Portal 2 Authoring Tools Beta Release

Share |

The "Portal 2" blog has been updated with the announcement of the release of "Portal 2" Authoring Tools, which are freely available to PC owners of the game. If you want to install the tools you can find a link under the "Tools" tab in Steam.

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:

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!
