Portal 2: Perpetual Testing Initiative DLC Coming May 8
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Valve has announced a May 8th release date for an upcoming free DLC for Portal 2. Titled Perpetual Testing Initiative, the add-on will feature 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.

The "Perpetual Testing Initiative" allows players to easily create, share, and play Portal 2 puzzles. The Initiative comes with a simplified puzzle maker that allows that creation of mind-bending puzzles without ever leaving the game.

The puzzle maker can directly publish maps to the Steam Workshop where users can browse, vote on, and select to play them. Selected puzzles will automatically be downloaded and installed inside Portal 2.

Drox Operative New Races
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Soldak Entertainment has published more new information about features in the upcoming Drox Operative starship action RPG. The update this time covers the Drakk and Dryad, two more of the thirteen races players will encounter during their travels in the game. Drox Operative will put players in the role of an elite starship captain and will feature warring alien races, fierce space battles, a dynamic and evolving galaxy, and co-op multiplayer.

In the galaxy where Drox Operative takes place there are 13 different races. Ten of these races are fairly diplomatic. They will at least pretend to listen before they try to eradicate the other races on the way to galactic domination. The other three? They are pretty much hostile to all life for one reason or another. The following may contain small spoilers.
Check out the link below to read more about the races of Drox Operative.
