Apply to the Steam Open Beta

November 4th, 2012 by Crusader

As mentioned on the Valve Linux Blog, a beta survey has been posted by Valve to assess applicants’ fitness for beta-testing Steam and Left 4 Dead 2 on Linux:

We’re looking for Linux gamers to install and test our new Steam for Linux client. We are primarily interested in experienced Linux users.

In order to take the survey or update your existing submission, you need to first login with your Steam account to link your response with your Steam ID.

There are only 1000 spots, so be sure to fill it out ASAP.

Additionally, Ryan “icculus” Gordon has been busy getting other titles ready for Linux distribution:

Lots of work for the impending Steam/linux release. New games, old games, and tools to support them. Fun times!

Exciting days ahead :)

    Hi Rameth. If you’re interested in Steam alone, you certainly could just run Windows. Those of us that don’t have a Windows machine are rather interested in native game ports. You do raise a decent point along the lines of the dangers of trendy walled-gardens. I think many a penguin will agree with you there.

    I’m happy for Linux that we’re getting major game publishers porting to Linux but at the same time saddened that it has to be divided into camps. There isn’t a Fedora version available and no commitments yet on whether one will be coming.

    For those of you who don’t have beta access, you can access steam and play at least one game, that I personally tested:

    I just can’t get excited about Valve bringing DRM to Linux
