Left 4 Dead 2 infects Linux as it's out of Beta!

By - | Views: 10,681
Writing on their official L4D blog the developers announce the new version of Left 4 Dead 2 is out featuring Linux!

QuoteThe Linux conversion is ready for primetime so we are opening it up to more people and releasing it officially on Steam. This will let us get feedback on more builds and distros


Left 4 Dead 2 is the awesome zombie survival game from Valve. Personally it's one of my favourite games so you can expect to see me put some hours into it!

Not only is the single player fun running through different campaigns either by yourself or teaming up to do co-op with friends it also has many different online modes to try as well! You can even play as zombies vs humans!

Here is some Linux gameplay of it I found on Ubuntu 13.04:

All looking good, you can pick it up now for £14.99 but with a Steam Summer Sale not far off it may be worth waiting a few weeks to get it cheaper! Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

So is there anything left in beta now?

Is there a L4D 1 for Linux? I'm asking because Portal, Half-Life 2 and maybe other non-beta games are available for Linux but Steam doesn't list them as Linux compatible. It's like they don't want us to buy their games or something.

Awesome! I hope this means it'll stop updating so much. The Beta kept downloading something nearly everyday for me. Do the EMS mods work on Linux?

Btw, thanks Liam for using my video :D

Hm, I got a Left 4 Dead 2 Beta and Left 4 Dead 2 (Beta) now. What's the right one? :)

Left 4 Dead (Beta) is the correct one
that means its using the main game catalogue (non-beta), but the linux client is still with beta quality
you can now join to non-beta servers

I think l4d1 will not be ported, because you can play the l4d1 missions in l4d2.
