Portal 2- These boots were made for long fallin’
With less than 10 days to go until the launch of Portal 2 Valve have launched the final part of their comedy Aperture Investment teaser campaign. Ever wondered how test subjects reach astonishing heights of 500m in the air only to land without a scratch? Why ‘Long Fall Boots’ of course!
The final part of the Aperture Investment Opportunities videos is marvellous showcase of Chell vaulting around like some other-wordly acrobat while teasing at some of the jaw dropping Portal stunts that we should expect to see in the hugely anticipated sequel. So make those checks out to cash, and get your copy of Portal 2 pre-ordered now!
The Aperture Investments trailers are not the only means Valve have utilised in order to really inflate the hype for the cult sequel. In what seems to be a rather neat little trend building from Valve, beginning with the 4 part ‘The Sacrifice’ prequel comic for the Left 4 Dead content of the same name- Portal 2 is seeing it’s very own little comic in the form of ‘Lab Rat’- featuring everyone’s favourite reclusive nutcase ‘Rat Man’ and his faithful Companion Cube.
The promise of a complete expanse on the Portal universe is starting to take shape in this little online comic which sheds light on the behind-the-scenes goings of the original game and also what happens after Chell is blown to the surface in a vacuum following the supposed destruction of the sinister GLaDOS.

Portal 2 is available on Steam from April 19th, followed by a full global launch on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 on April 21st and 22nd. Join us at the end of the months for our full review!
