Physical Release of Bridge Constructor Portal Coming Soon
Earlier this year there was an interesting crossover with the Portal and the Bridge Constructor series. Aptly named Bridge Constructor Portal, the game made for a surprisingly good combination and did pretty well with critics and fans alike.
Just announced today in a press release, you’ll be able to get your hands on a physical pretty soon. Plus it comes a couple extra goodies. For $29.99 you’ll be able to get a physical edition of the game that also includes the first game in the series, Bridge Constructor, and Bridge Constructor Stunts. If you’re into realistic physics and puzzle based gameplay this might be a good time to check it out if you haven't already.
Bridge Constructor Portal takes the same concept of bridge building series; to get a vehicle from point A to point B. It then takes features from the Portal series. We’re talking lots of lasers, robots, and more importantly, portals. This game has Portal written all over it, including the original voice of GlaDOS.
- GLaDOS Voice Actor – Ellen McLain, the original voice of GLaDOS, guides players through the tutorial and accompanies them through tricky physics adventures;
- Portal Gadgets – Iconic components of the original Portal franchise are at players’ disposal to solve complicated tasks, including portals, aerial faith plates, propulsion gel, repulsion gel, and more;
- Portal Dangers – Designing structures to avoid death traps is critical, requiring players to outmaneuver sentry turrets, emancipation grills, laser fields, and acid;
- Aperture Science Labs – Players can create complex constructions in the Aperture Science labs, learning all the tips and tricks that make a true Aperture Science employee. The bridge is a lie!
Check out the trailer below to get a better idea.
There is no exact release date yet but Bridge Construction Portal will be on store shelves sometime late summer.
This looks like a headache of a game, it is a hard pass for me. I like the building part, but the puzzle parts would just drive me mad.
I think it would drive me nuts too but I did find the trailer amusing with the GLaDOS voice over.
For sure! The trailer almost sells me, until i remember how much i dislike puzzles.
