The fabled puzzle series Portal is making its return as a spin off, mashup with Bridge Constructor Portal, set to debut on Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS on Dec. 20.
Bridge Constructor is a game that challenges players build bridges across differently shaped and sized ravines, trying to have traffic pass over them that can sometimes lead to ran funny failures. Bridge Constructor Portal takes that same premise, but adds in the theme and some of the signature elements from the Portal series.
For Bridge Constructor Portal, developer Headup Games has brought their game to the Aperture Science labs testing facilities, challenging players to get the traffic from one side of the test chamber to the other. Added into the mix are the portals that can slingshot or warp traffic from one spot to another, the blue and orange goo, and the beloved companion cube.
Console releases are scheduled for “early 2018” and planned for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Pricing for both desktop and mobile versions hasn’t been announced.
Valve’s last full outing from the Portal franchise was Portal 2 that was released in 2011, which has left puzzlers have been clamoring for a third ever since. Characters from the series have appeared in cameo roles in other non-puzzle games such as Lego Dimensions and Robot Repair.
Bridge Constructor originally launched in 2013 by Headup Games.
