Last month, we informed you about a new mod for Portal 2 that aims to bring puzzles that take place in two different timelines, Portal Reloaded. And its creator, Jannis Brinkmann, has released a new gameplay trailer for it that you can find below.
As its Brinkmann said:
“The earlier puzzles will slowly introduce the many different mechanics of this mod so that they don’t feel overwhelming.
Speaking of mechanics, maybe you already noticed some of them that are present in this gameplay trailer. In Portal Reloaded you can fire three different portals. The familiar blue and orange ones, which connect to places in space and a third green timeportal, which connects two different places in time.
You can use this timeportal to travel between the present and a version of reality 20 years in the future. The timeportal exists in the exact same location in both timelines.
But that’s not all! As you may have noticed, actions the player takes in the present have an impact on the future version of the same test chamber. A cube, for example, which is left behind in the present, will instantly appear in the same position in the future. The same rule applies to regular portals as well.
Travelling between two different timelines opens up a whole new way of puzzle solving. There are many more interesting puzzle mechanics, which come into play later in the game. We’ll take a look at those in a special gameplay deep dive video soon.”
