Now is a great time to get into the Portal series

There has never been a better time to start playing play Portal on PC

The Portal series sits amongst some of the best games that Valve has ever produced, offering gamers many unique gameplay concepts, challenging puzzles, and enough humour to eek past the series’ most complex challenges.

While the main series has been released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Android and PC, it is hard to deny that the game’s true home is on PC, where the game has received incredible support from players in the form of new test chambers, and community-made add-ons such as Portal Stories: Mel and Portal Stories: VR, both of which received full Steam releases in 2015. Beyond that, Nvidia has also created a fully path traced version of Portal called Portal RTX, giving the game a huge graphical overhaul for those with strong enough hardware.

So why are we talking about Portal in 2023? To make a long story short the full series is available on Steam right now for £1.28, a steal of a price which grants players access to Portal 1, Portal 2 and an abundance fan-made content which is sure to keep you entertained for hours.

If you missed out on the series when it originally launched, now’s your chance to catch up. At a minimum, you will finally get to understand why the cake is a lie, and if you enjoy the series and its fan-made spin-offs, this may be the best £1.28 you have ever spent on a game.

Users of modern PC hardware should be able to run both games without any issues at maximum settings, even with MSAA cranked up to max. That said, if you try Nvidia’s Portal RTX, expect that to crush your system unless you have a powerful GeForce RTX GPU.
