Left 4 Dead 2 Leaves Beta, Snatches Undead Wallets Everywhere


Left 4 Dead 2, Valve’s swan song for its aging source engine, has finally stepped out of beta for Linux.  Left 4 Dead 2 is now officially available with many official fixes in tow.  The 4 year old game offers the following fixes over the last beta release.

  • [Linux] Fixed controller support
  • [Linux] Support for Chinese font rendering
  • [Linux] Fixed problems with incorrect mouse grabbing when joining a game
  • [OSX] Fixed problems with lerp calculations
  • Rolled back CEF version to see if it was the cause of vertex buffer errors

Some of these fixes are welcome ones for those of you that have been playing the beta version, while others are not related.  Not to mention that we’re not really sure what “CEF version” is, so if that one applies to you, we’d love to know what it’s all about in the comments.

Other media outlets were reporting on Left 4 Dead 2 Linux leaving beta in early July, including Joystiq.  Our sources report otherwise.  Perhaps you can help un-confuse us in the comments?
