8 months after Alpha 5, the next Estranged release, Act 1 (beta) is here.

Second mirror: To play, you will need to install "Source SDK Base 2013" from the "Tools" menu on Steam. You can also install it using this link.

Changes since alpha 5 include:

  • Completely overhauled existing maps and added new maps
  • Brand new infected and other enemies
  • Brand new and re-recorded voice work
  • Many bug fixes, and too many improvements to list
  • Danish, Norwegian, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Swedish, Spanish, Hungarian and partial Simplified Chinese translations.

I'd like to thank everyone involved in this release, it wouldn't be what it is without all of you.

As always, please let us know what you think! You can do that by dropping a comment, or using the in-game "submit feedback" feature.

Edit: I updated this to RC5 - changes include Spanish and Hungarian localizations and bug fixes for players seeing invisible walls. Now uses sourcemods/estrangedact1 rather than sourcemods/estranged, and bzip2 compression rather than zip.

Installation instructions: Put the estranged folder in ~/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/sourcemods/ after installing Source SDK 2013, and then restart steam, it'll show up in your steam library.

Thanks for posting those!

Quite honestly I don't understand why Valve made this so complicated on Linux. I really hope we get on Steam, because the average user shouldn't have to figure this out!

What kind of error are you getting? You can always try from our site, if you're having problems with the mirrors here.

Just for record, as I saw the previous comment from "Guest" "nao consigo baixar alguem pode me ajudar" (wich is portuguese for "I'm having no success with the download, can somebody help me?"), if I try to download it from the mirror (the red button) I often get:
"The file you have selected (estranged-act1-beta-rc5-linux.tar.bz2) is not available via any mirrors. Please check back shortly as our servers update every 5 minutes."
And if I'm not logged in, I get the same message plus "To access more download mirrors we encourage you to join the community, otherwise please be patient and keep trying.".
Although it worked once. (When I got "Click to download estranged-act1-beta-rc5-linux.tar.bz2 if it doesn't start automatically or try another mirror.")

The "Download on Desura" option returns, after "Preparing to install estranged":
"There was an error during gathering
information process and it has been stopped.

The item handle was null (gather info failed)

The download link on works just fine, even though it's really slow. Actually both and are really slow. So, lets just wait until it finishes :)
