Valve does love to keep some relative silence and mystery when it comes to bringing updates for its puzzle game, Portal 2. Released in 2011, Portal 2 still seems relevant within the community despite getting updates and fixes in such large intervals. After a gap of almost one and a half years, Valve has returned with another patch update for the game. While nothing exceptional was changed, the developers have made some crucial fixes to the bugs and glitches persisting. Let’s have a deeper look at the patch notes.
Portal 2 Makes Crucial Fixes To Bugs And Glitches With Latest Update
Portal’s last update in January 2020 was a big update that had brought in several tweaks, changes, and fixes. Since the previous patch, players have complained about experiencing issues with the game. It is quite plausible that Valve has chosen to fix these issues with their latest patch update.
The update has added some exciting changes such as support to Steam Deck, improvement in the performance of controller polling, some in-game performance improvements, and some issues with input action, maps, and drivers.
Highlights From The New Patch Notes For Portal 2
As mentioned in the notes, some critical aspects of the Portal 2 patch update are as follows.
- UI improvements for Steam Deck support
- Improved performance of controller polling
- Other general in-game performance improvements
