Nothing! P2:CE is a completely free, non-profit project- you just need to own Portal 2!

We're currently aiming for mid-2022. Keep an eye on our Discord or Twitter for updates.
Currently P2:CE supports 64-bit Windows and Linux. In the future we may support OSX, depending on interest in the platform. See the Steam page for more detailed system requirements.
