Three months ago Skyrim unleashed the Creation Kit on Steam. Not only did it let users create amazing mods for an amazing game, it allowed them to browse, download, and share those mods using the Steam Workshop.

Now we're introducing the Perpetual Testing Initiative (PeTI), which combines a powerful, easy-to-use Puzzle Maker with full Steam Workshop integration, and will be available free for the PC and Mac on May 8th.



The Steam Workshop

There are already hundreds of incredible Portal 2 puzzles in the wild, but chances are you haven't played them. They're hard to find, hard to install, and hard to manage. We're changing that. Now that we're adding the Steam Workshop to Portal 2, you'll be able to browse a virtually endless stream of community-crafted puzzles, then install and play them with just one click from any web browser. Play the most popular maps in the world, or just what your friend created last night.

The Puzzle Maker

With the Puzzle Maker, you can create test chambers of all shapes and sizes. It's incredibly easy to use — jump right in and start making cool stuff. When you're happy with your work, publish it to the Workshop for your friends. or even the whole world, to play. Get feedback, gain followers, and build collections of puzzles to break people's brains. You're the designer now; let's see what you can dream up.

Make sure to check back next week for more information on the Perpetual Testing Initiative!

Congrats to Charlie Miliner of New Hampshire, US (aka Social Club's Chaz2345) on being randomly selected out of thousands of entrants as the Grand Prize winner in our Max Payne 3 New York to São Paulo Sweepstakes.

A longtime Rockstar fan who counts Vice City & Manhunt amongst his throwback favorites, Charlie and his guest will begin their journey by catching a flight to NYC to get exclusive hands-on time with Max Payne 3 a full week before its May 15th release. From there, they'll follow Max's trail to São Paulo, Brazil staying at the chic Hotel Unique, the same hotel where Rockstar developers stayed during the making of the game. They'll also be getting VIP passes to attend the SONAR SÃO PAULO festival featuring performance from headliners Bjork and Justice as well as Max Payne 3 soundtrack star Emicida.

On top of all that Charlie will also receive a customized Max Payne 3 250GB Xbox 360, as well as a free year of Xbox LIVE Gold and 1,600 Microsoft Points, courtesy of Microsoft. Enjoy the trip Charlie, we hope to see you online in the upcoming Max Payne 3 Xbox LIVE multiplayer events when you get back!

Congratulations also to our ten runners-up: Social Club members JamieMilne, ER1588, Shigster, JohnyVegas, BigCountry2, DaveMiami7, luis_fep972, mikehuberiscool, _wiba_ and Freakk.Nomi, who all scored a Max Payne 3 prize pack, 1,600 Microsoft Points and a year of Xbox LIVE Gold.

Thanks again to all of our event partners: Sonar São Paulo, Tablet Hotels, Xbox 360, and Pitchfork.com, as well as absolutely everyone that entered. Look for plenty more great Social Club contests throughout the summer....
