Left 4 Dead 2 Hitting Linux This Year, Cold Stream on 360 Next Week
Left 4 Dead 2 fans waited eagerly for Cold Stream's release on 360, but will have to wait another week to get access.
Fans of the Left 4 Dead series on 360 were disappointed yesterday as a promised DLC update, Cold Stream, was delayed at the last minute in order to fix a few bugs. Instead, Valve have made a set of announcements that will no doubt excite quite a lot of people, not least of all that Left 4 Dead 2 will see a Linux release later this year. The game will be made to run natively on Linux, without the use of additional programs like WINE, via a Linux version of Steam.
Although Cold Stream didn't make it to the Xbox marketplace yesterday, the full game definitely did. Left 4 Dead 2 is now a member of the games on demand program and you can purchase and download the game 24/7 for $29.99. If that seems a little bit pricey (especially when you consider the amount of DLC you'll probably be buying on top of that price), Steam are selling it for $4.99, along with all the DLC updates for free.
Finally, all 8 playable survivors will be making their way to the 360 version of Minecraft in August.
