Were this high school, the idea of a "Perpetual Testing Initiative" would not be met with open arms--even if it were free. However, when Valve announces said program for Portal 2, people get excited.

The next DLC for Portal 2 will be available on PC and Mac on May 8th, the company has announced.

The "PTI" is simply a new name for the in-game map editor that Valve has already announced. It will allow players to play, create, and share Portal 2 puzzles. Fans will be able to browse the Steam Workshop to not only find user-generated levels, but also vote on them.

Unfortunately, the initial release of the DLC will not include support for co-op puzzles. However, Valve is still working on adding that in the future.

          well yeah, if it's perpetual, I'd expect it to be enabling user generated content

          you mean boo-urns - only SP level editing

          community should have co-op hacks rolling out within 30 days is my guess.

          "Just"? Have you seen what they were planning for the editor? It's quite ambitious.

          It is a crazy concept for a level-editor and I'm excited to see how it turns out!

        It doesn't get released for two weeks, and yet, I fear, you are already too late.
