Portal 2, the highly anticipated first-person puzzle game from Valve Corporation, is out today. While you can get it for either Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, the PC version has a leg up on its console-based siblings, something a little heftier than the usual capacity for better graphics: an interactive trailer for J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Steven Spielberg homage Super 8.
It’s actually kind of crazy. Remember that first teaser trailer for the movie, with the train-on-truck collision and subsequent derailing? And the USAF-branded boxcar? Well, this interactive trailer, built using the same game engine that powers Portal 2, places you inside that train. Not with whatever’s sealed in that boxcar, unfortunately. But it’s still a really cool little marketing bonus which you should definitely check out if you have a PC version of the game.
If not, here’s a run-through of the “game,” compliments of Kotaku:
