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.

Steam is coming for you, Linux users, and you can help speed or ease its transition by signing up to help beta test the digital distribution client. Valve is now taking applications, but requests “experienced Linux users” first where possible. Only one game is known to be compatible with the new client so far – Left 4 Dead – so it probably helps if you like shooting zombies right in their ugly faces, too.

RPS has noted that Valve has made its games available on GameStop download service Impulse. The marketplace, which was owned by Stardock up until last year when it was bought by GameStop, now has five titles from the company: Portal 2, The Half-Life Complete Collection, Left 4 Dead 1 + 2 and The Orange Box, all of which end up requiring Steam activation anyways. Still, your options on where to buy Valve games has become more broader now.
