Valve wasn't stingy with add-on content for Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2, and that strategy will apparently continue with its latest title, Portal 2. As part of an interview with the online edition of business-oriented magazine Fast Company, Valve marketing director Doug Lombardi confirmed that downloadable content will be available for the first-person puzzler beginning this summer.

"We will be announcing some DLC for it, so folks can keep a look out for more content coming this summer," Lombardi said. "We'll be putting more details out about that in a week or so. We'll support that with more videos or more comics." Lombardi told GameSpot that the announcement should arrive "before this week is over."

Released to critical acclaim for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC last week, Portal 2 is the continuation of 2007 Orange Box pack-in Portal. The new title continues the travails of human lab rat Chell, who in the original game used a portal gun to create interdimensional openings on ceilings, walls, and floors in an effort to escape the Aperture Science labs and thwart the diabolical artificial intelligence known as GLaDOS.

In addition to extending the amount of content in the single-player mode, Valve introduced a new multiplayer cooperative mode. In it, players take control of two robots, named Atlas and P-body, and work together to tackle their own set of portal-related problems.
