Portal Is Returning with An Unexpected Bridge Constructor Crossover

A collaboration between Valve and Bridge Constructor developer Clockstone Software, Bridge Constructor Portal is a standalone game coming to Windows, MacOS, Linux, and mobile on December 20. Bridge Constructor Portal promises to blend the laws of structural engineering and technology straight from Aperture Laboratories into an exciting new game experience, all under the demanding gaze of GLaDOS. Well, it's a physics puzzler much like the previous Bridge Constructors. It received a more fleshed-out sequel in 2011's Portal 2, which received even more acclaim than the original.

Valve may have an aversion to making games with the number 3 in them, but that doesn't mean franchises like Portal are dead. It's likely that she will tell you there's a cake somewhere on your bridge building journey, but it's nearly certainly a lie.

There's no gameplay footage, but the teaser confirms the return of GLaDOS voice actress Ellen McLain. My absolute dream would be for Valve to acknowledge this game as canon in the Portal universe and slips in some additional tidbits on Aperture Science.

So, who's excited? Would you like to see Valve bring its two main Portal games over to Android at some point?

Bridge Constructor Portal is coming out on December 20th. It will be coming to PS4, Switch and Xbox One early next year.
