Developer Valve has revealed that its hotly-anticipated physics-defying sci-fi title Portal 2will be arriving in February 2011.
In addition to this, Valve also disclosed to CVG that renowned British actor and writer Stephen Merchant will be lending his vocal talents to the game.
The lanky comedian, best known as the co-creator of The Office and Extras, will provide the voice of Wheatley, the “buddy sphere” robot who accompanies the player through parts of the game.
Gamers have embraced the quirky charms of Portal since it made its debut in 2007, challenging players to navigate their way through a maze using interconnected warp holes, under the supervision of demented oddball computer GLaDOS.
The sequel promises to be a much longer adventure which not only brings back GLaDOS but adds new features such as cooperative multiplayer options.
