Left 4 Dead 2 has been patched with updates which apply to both the Windows and Linux versions of the zombie infested shooter. One of the bigger fixes is to a Jockey exploit, the bastard, which will no longer allow players to insta-kill him when shoving the jerk mid leap. Other fixes include restoring sounds and the like. The full thing is posted below courtesy of PCgamesN. As usual, the patch will apply when you fire up Steam.

As promised earlier this week, the Left 4 Dead 2 Linux beta is live. The beta build allows Linux owners to play the game natively, and comes with the new Extended Mutation System. Those who currently own Left 4 Dead 2 will see the beta in their Steam library, and the complete game comes with authoring tools and the beta Dedicated Server. It also includes updated Windows and Mac clients, so even if you are not running under Linux you can help by testing the Beta. Further information can be found through the link to the L4D Blog.

Thanks to a lovely teaser image linking to a Steam page by Capcom Unity this morning, I am now aware of two things: Valve is working on tutorials and examples of how to create content for the Left for Dead 2 Workshop using Bloodshots from Resident Evil 6; and The Brütal Legends Collection for Left for Dead 2 is available in the Workshop. So, instead of dispatching zombies with a projectile weapon, you can now use Eddie’s axe instead. Rock on. Hit up the links for more.

Valve has added the Steam Workshop created Helm’s Deep Reborn map to the official Left 4 Dead 2 servers, alongside an update which fixes an issue with dedicated servers and workshop content. The map, as you’ve already figured out, adds Helm’s Deep from Lord of the Rings to the zombie shooter. It sounds kookie enough to make me want to try it despite being horrible at L4D2. Have a look at the map for yourself through here. Thanks, D’toid.

Warcelona, the fan-made campaign for Left 4 Dead 2, is now available for download. The campaign’s four maps recreate the route between the Sant Roc church and the National Art Museum of Catalonia in Barcelona. As PC Gamer notes, installing the campaign is a bit “complex at the moment,” but all complexities for such content will be alleviated once the Left 4 Dead 2 Workshop beta has finished, and becomes available to the public. The Left 4 Dead 2 Workshop, currently in test beta, will be expanded into an invite only private beta soon. Get more information on the beta and instructions on how to download Warcelona through the L4D Blog. A video for the campaign is below.

Valve’s added an updated version of the original Left 4 Dead Terminal Map for Dead Air into Left 4 Dead 2, and it is handing out an incentive to test it for bugs and the like. This incentive will come in the form of an achievement called Connecting Fights, which is earned by playing a complete game of Versus in Dead Air. What’s more, once 60,000 people earn the achievement, Valve will unlock the beta version of Blood Harvest on Steam the following weekday. Think of it as the same as with the Dead Air incentive, only instead of the goal being 20,000, Valve has added and extra 40,000 on top of it. Get to work. Thanks, Shack.
