[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

With the upcoming release of Bridge Constructor Portal next week, we’re happy to announce that everybody's favorite Ellen McLain returns as the voice of GLaDOS, this time as your friendly construction guide. At least we hope she's friendly.

Bridge Constructor Portal remains true to the lore of the Portal universe. Headup Games collaborated with Valve to ensure that the story of Bridge Constructor Portal remains true to the Portal franchise. Dialog, sound effects, and even test chamber names were developed with guidance from the original Portal team.

The release will be on December 20 2017 for Windows, MacOS and Linux (9.99 USD) as well as for iOS and Android (4.99 USD). Versions for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One will follow in early 2018.
