Valve has announced that they have successfully completed the testing of the Linux version of Left 4 Dead 2 as well as SteamPipe support and the Extended Mutation System, all of which are now available as part of the latest official build. The Extended Mutation system is a tool for modders that sounds really awesome as it allows them to build new mutations and game modes with users being allowed to add them to L4D2’s Steam Workshop.
The Linux version of the game is now live on Steam and available to users with supported systems while the SteamPipe update is not quite as glamorous as its main function is to ensure faster patching for the user. Should you wish to read precisely what is included in the latest update, you can check out the full patch notes here. If you don’t have the update yet it is simple to acquire, just restart your Steam client and all will be well.
