Our beloved, metal friend from Portal is definitely making a return in Portal 2.
Valve has released a host of gorgeous new screenshots for Portal 2 that show off the intricate dangers players will face when the game is finally released next month. Also, the companion cube is back!
The screens run the gamut, showing energy platforms, Portal's infamous elevator, and buttons on the ceiling amongst tubes that look like they were made for hamsters. One screen also features the weighted companion cube being shot at by a laser beam. Someone save it! Use a portal!
It's probably not the exact same companion cube that we saw in Portal, considering how (*SPOILER ALERT*) we were forced to euthanize it in an incinerator. I'm happy to see it make a return, but have fears about how GlaDOS will make us kill it this time.
Or, perhaps there'll be a way to save the companion cube? Multiple endings anyone? Either way, simply from these screens Portal 2 is looking like an amazing and varied experience. Portal 2 will be available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on April 19.
