Since Respawn Entertainment launched the Titanfall beta last week everyone has been trying to get their hands on a beta code to play what many are calling the most anticipated game of 2014. Respawn had opened up the Xbox One side of things to open beta and now today they have announced that the PC side of things is in open beta as well.
The announcement is short and sweet, and that’s all it needs to be. Linux gamers eager to play games from Valve and other developers natively can get on Steam now. The Steam for Linux beta client is now available to all Steam users, so if you’ve been patiently waiting for an invitation to join us, consider yourself officially invited! With a growing catalog of Linux-supported games, an active Steam for Linux community group, and a new GitHub bug reporting repository, the timing’s right to jump in and share your feedback.
Have you heard of Steam’s big picture mode? First announced last year, Big Picture Mode allows users to easily navigate the steam interface on a large TV screen. Big Picture Mode will be open for beta access in September, as confirmed by product design executive Greg Coomer.
Many steam games play very well with a controller, but even if you have your PC connected to your TV you will need at least a mouse to get the game started. With Big Picture the Steam UI is designed to be used with larger TV’s and with a controller, although you can still use a mouse and keyboard of course. Bringing this new UI to the “lounge” or living room area steam hopes to allow greater accessibility to their digital distribution platform.
