What’s in the Box? Portal – Valve’s Popular PC Title – Coming to SHIELD

by Jason Paul

One of SHIELD’s strengths is that it’s an open gaming platform. That means gamers have been enjoying the best of both PC and Android worlds since its launch.

Those worlds are now set to collide.

14-NV-SHIELD-TWIMTBP-Portal-403x504-FB-HalfFeature-2We’re teaming up with Valve to bring the critically acclaimed Portal to SHIELD, as we just announced at the GPU Technology Conference.

Also announced this week: NVIDIA SHIELD – New Games, New Features and Now $199 for a Limited Time 

Winner of over 70 industry awards and 95% MetaCritic score, Portal is a hybrid of FPS and puzzle style  gaming that creates a a new genre of spatial brain teasers, offering hours of totally unique gameplay.

“NVIDIA has created a very powerful and unique device with SHIELD,” said Doug Lombardi at Valve. “Our companies have a strong history working together and we’re looking forward to Portal‘s arrival on SHIELD.”

Set in the mysterious Aperture Science Laboratories and noted for its humorous writing, the game requires player to solve puzzles and challenges by opening portals, maneuvering objects, and moving themselves through space in ways that used to be impossible.

Coming soon, Portal will be joining over 300 SHIELD-supported Android games currently available.

  • metroidjunkie

    Shouldn’t be too hard to get it to work on other Android devices or even devices that don’t have Tegra 4. Dead Trigger 2’s Very High setting is supposed to be Tegra 4 exclusive but I got it running on my Adreno 220 backed Android without much trouble.
