Video of Valve’s ‘Aperture Science’ Portal VR Demo Leaked


Steam VR is taking GDC 2015 by storm with the HTC Vive VR Headset being demonstrated along with the dedicated, laser tracked controllers. One of the demo’s is a new, special version of Portal built for virtual reality. Here’s a video of it in action.

This video (presumably secretly filmed) shows a live demonstration the HTC Vive headset plus Steam VR controllers as the player makes his way through a short segment of the Aperture Science VR demo, opening doors and interacting with crazy looking gizmos. Just from a visual standpoint it looks impressive, and although it isn’t clear – we’re presuming this is built on the Source 2 game engine, if so it looks great.

Anyway, sit back and enjoy (for a few seconds). The team at GDC 2015 have tried the demo and will report back very soon on what they think of it. I can let you into a little secret though – it didn’t suck!
