The mode, which can be accessed free of charge by all players who own the Portal 2 game on Steam, can currently be downloaded and played on Steam.

A New Story, 40 New Puzzles!
Portal: Revolution is a fan-made mod that focuses just before the events at the dead and decaying Aperture facility in Portal 2. The game features 40 new puzzles that take advantage of new testing elements and introduces existing mechanics in a different way not seen in Portal 2.
The game’s difficulty level begins where Portal 2 ends, but fear not. All new mechanics and advanced portal tricks are taught in detail at the beginning of the game. Through rigorous playtesting, we ensure that every player can solve the puzzles. No puzzles require advanced challenging moves, although some rooms require firing a portal gun in the air.
Portal: Revolution offers a game time of approximately 5 to 7 hours, depending on your playing experience.
Story of the Game!
Portal: Revolution mode, which takes place between Portal and Portal 2, tells a brand new story using new characters. We play as a test subject awakened by a personality sphere named Stirling and participate in a mission to find a powerful device that can restore Aperture to its former glory.
The game uses a modified version of the Portal 2: Community Edition engine and is said to provide the opportunity to use some experiences that would be impossible in the original game.
If you are curious about the mode, you can find the download link and short promotional video right below.
Frequently Asked Questions About the Game:
- Will there be workshop support?
We have no plans to host a workshop, but you will still be able to create custom maps using the SDK.
- Will multiplayer be possible?
- Will we be able to use Portal: Revolution to mod?
Yes. You are free to use our engine as a basis for your own mods. However, we will not be able to provide support or updates to mod developers. Note that Portal 2: Community Edition may be more suitable for mods.
- Do I need to own Portal 2 to play the game?
Yes, you will need to have Portal 2 on Steam to download Portal: Revolution. However, you do not need to install Portal 2 to play the mode.
- What are the system requirements of the game?
It’s hard to explain this. You’ll need a dedicated graphics card and a good CPU to play at 1080p highest settings. Anything under 10 years old should be fine. You can find the reference specifications on our Steam Store page. If you don’t have a dedicated GPU (e.g. Intel HD Graphics…), you will need to lower your graphics settings to get playable FPS. Graphics settings have no effect on world decorations, only the display quality.
