    So it was sort-of-rumoured, so shall it be. Valve’s officially announced the second dollop of Portal 2 DLC (via Joystiq), and it includes “an easy-to-use in-game map editor that will let users design, build and share their own single-player and co-op test chambers with the community.” It’s coming out early next year.
    ​Beyond that, the only tidbit Valve’s allowing to seep out – in much the same way one would utilize a deadly neurotoxin – is a vague mention of voting for your favorite levels. Community features, then, are probably a no-brainer – which is roughly the state one would find themselves in after being exposed to a deadly neurotoxin.
    ​
    What about a GLaDOS-powered “spellcheck,” though? Valve’s said nothing, but fingers crossed, obviously. As a rule, Valve’s notoriously tight-lipped, but I’ve asked for more details just in case.

    This looks great, an easy to use drag-and-drop map editor will allow players with great ideas but unable to use Hammer to create maps. Hopefully there'll also be an in-game sharing application as well.

    Sweet. I doubt I will be able to make anything great with this, but it will be fun to play around with I'm sure.

    A level editor is already available in the form of Hammer included in the Portal 2 Authoring Tools Beta, though it is not really "easy to use".

    My brain: "OMG HALF LIFE 3 OMFG"
    What it says: "...announces.."
    My brain: "OH GOD ITS TRUR"
    My body: "CAME CAME CAME"
    What it says: "..portal DLC"

    ...

    Oh well. The level editor looks neat.

    Level editor =/= Creative pieces of SCIENCE
    Level editor == Chance to make something sexual :creep:
    I cant wait to see what people make
    I also cant wait to buy the game (I think I might need to get this one first... I dont know why)
