Steam Linux client launches with 50+ games on sale

0

Be sure to get Tux in Team Fortress 2

The Steam client for Ubuntu has shed its beta status and officially launched with more than 50 games that are 50 to 75 percent off through Wednesday, February 21 at 10:00am Pacific. Should you feel inclined to try it out, you can download Steam from the Ubuntu Software Center.

"We expect a growing number of game developers to include Ubuntu among their target platforms," said Canonical director of consumer applications David Pitkin. "We're looking forward to seeing AAA games developed with Ubuntu in mind as part of a multi-platform day and date release on Steam."

And, yes, this wouldn't be complete without some kind of Team Fortress 2 item. Now through the end of the month, players will earn the Linux mascot just by playing this version of the game. Tux can be carried by all classes and he's freakin' adorable.

Disclosure-bot: Just in case the editor neglected to mention it, we have zero control when deals start and end. Deals can sometimes be gone within minutes (please don't shoot the messenger). Trying deal links even hours after this article's time stamp may lead to self-punching, so maybe bookmark our video game deals if you're on the hunt. Also, it goes without saying, but some shopping links do directly support the author. If you've spotted any inaccuracy please let us know asap.
