GLaDOS hits XBLA on Oct 22nd...

Posted by: Dan at 10/16/2008 8:00 PM
Portal: Still Alive will be out next Wednesday, October 22nd. Starting at 5:00 a.m. EST on XBLA.  It will be available for 1200 MS points and will feature 14 new challenge maps (including six that can help you).  Also, 12 new achievements were announced, which have some of the best names I have seen to date for an arcade game.  Check it all out after the break.


GLaDOS is still alive, and coming to Xbox LIVE Arcade this Wednesday

You are invited to return to the Aperture Science Enrichment Center this Wednesday, October 22 at 9 a.m. GMT (2:00 a.m. PDT) via Xbox LIVE Arcade. Due to the unforeseen conclusion of your last visit, all necessary precautions have been taken to ensure that “Portal: Still Alive” is a sanitary, objective, and mostly non-lethal testing environment.

In addition to the original award winning first-person puzzle experience, Aperture Science is proud to provide 14 new challenge maps exclusive to Xbox LIVE Arcade. Six advanced maps will also be provided to help guide you along the way.

Though prior test subjects proved to be unstable and may have presented false information, Aperture Science is pleased to inform you that your cake is indeed waiting for you and that the Weighted Companion Cube misses you in your absence. Come visit them again for 1200 MS Points.
