Sixense has announced the launch of their exclusive PlayStation 3 DLC for Portal 2, titled In Motion, which features three unique mechanics that tie-in with the PlayStation Move controller. The DLC has been made available for US gamers, however no date has been set yet for AU players.
Sixense designed three new motion mechanics for Portal 2 In Motion and tuned them to feel like a natural extension of your body. The “One-to-One” mechanic allows the player to manipulate objects as if they were held in the player’s own hand. This means that when using One-to-One you can change the object’s position and orientation by moving and rotating the Move controller.
This opened the door to a lot of new possibilities for our team in terms of puzzle design, which you’ll see in Portal 2 In Motion. It is very satisfying to reach out with the controller and redirect lasers with the Discouragement Redirection Cube to light up some poor Sentry Turrets.
Sixense has also made it clear that the digital Portal 2 and subsequent patch have also included support for the PlayStation Move, however only the In Motion DLC includes the three new motion mechanics. Players can still use their PlayStation Move for both the singleplayer and multiplayer experience if they want to do so.
Check out the trailer below for a great overview of each new mechanic, and also the quite interesting methods players can use to solve these puzzles.
