Linux/SteamOS Experimental Branch Now Live!

15 likes


As promised, we’ve created an Experimental Branch for Linux and SteamOS testing. Details below.

Linux Experimental Build 

We are happy to announce the experimental Linux build for The Long Dark! 

To download this version in Big Picture Mode
1. Start Steam and log in
2. Select “The Long Dark” in your your Library
3. Select “Manage Game” 4. Select “Select Beta…”
5. Enter access code first: QjDcT5s3JXw8hcUL
6. Select ‘test_linux’ from the beta pulldown choices 

To download when not in Big Picture Mode:
1. Start Steam and log in
2. You should see “The Long Dark” in your Library
3. Select it, right-click, and select Properties
4. Click on the BETAS tab
5. Enter access code first: QjDcT5s3JXw8hcUL
6. Select ‘test_linux’ from the beta pulldown choices 

The Linux build should start downloading automatically. If successful, the game will be named “The Long Dark [test_linux]” in your Steam Library. 

To return to the default branch, just select “None – Opt out of all beta programs” in the BETAS list. 

Frequently Asked Questions
We’ve prepared a short FAQ below: 

Q. Will my profile (keyboard bindings, graphics settings, etc) and savegames be affected?

A. Your profile and savegames will be shared between the test_linux and default branches. There will be no data loss as a result of switching branches.

Q. What versions of Linux have you tested?
A. We have tested the build on a default SteamOS installation, so we can’t say with certainty that the game will work on other Linux systems. Please let us know if you run into any problems running the game on any Linux system. 

Q. Where do I send bug reports or feedback?
A. Please post them in the dedicated Linux/SteamOS subforum, located here.

Q. Will the Steam Controller work with The Long Dark?
A. We have not been able to test with a Steam Controller, but we expect it to work with The Long Dark. We don’t have default bindings available for the Steam Controller, but we will provide one as soon as possible. In the meantime you can create your own Steam Controller bindings for the game. 

Thank you for your interest in the Linux version of The Long Dark!
