Developer Teases With Darksiders On Linux Screenshot

By - | Views: 43,593
We have good news for those of you who like action-adventure hack and slash games as we have a neat screenshot of Darksiders running on Linux!

Leszek Godlewski, a developer for Nordic Games who has worked on Deadfall Adventures, tweeted a picture showing Darksiders running on Linux. Seeing those KDE window decorations is surely a good sign coming from any developer. For now there isn't much info about the port, but we will keep you informed when we find out more about it.

Darksiders is a third-person action-adventure hack and slash game set into a realm divided into three kingdoms: Kingdom of Hell, Kingdom of Heaven and the Kingdom of Man. Heaven and Hell have waged war with each other since the dawn of the ages and their conflict has proven to be harmful to the stability of the realm. A mediator group called The Charred Council is trying to maintain the balance and thus they created the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse, which consists of War, Death, Strife and Fury.

You play as Horseman War, who goes out to bring order into the chaos the conflict is causing to the realm. You need to explore the land, complete puzzles and engage in combat with your foes using your two-handed sword or the weapons you find throughout the game.

Something to note is that yes it is a native port:

@rbnswartz @darksiders Yes, this is a full native port - the real deal. Thats how we do our ports :)

I'm a Linux gamer from Finland. I like reading, long walks on the beach, dying repeatedly in roguelikes and ripping and tearing in FPS games. I also sometimes write code and sometimes that includes hobbyist game development.

Any game on Linux I've not yet played that can show a metascore of 80+ is an obvious buy for me.

Remember to wait until the Linux port is out to buy it folks.

Great news, cannot wait to give it a go.

Huh. I kind of gave up hope on this game the moment I moved to Linux. Guess I have no choice but to give it a good playthrough.

holy cow & mother of god. that news just made my day. it's one of the best slashers i played.

i already own DS&DS2 for both PS3 and PC. guess i'll be buying one more and gift to someone when 1st beta drops. and if DS2 drops after, i'll be doing the same gift logic.

nordic simply deserves it. correct me if i'm wrong, i think leszek is nordic employee. at least if i remember correctly, so money already went in right hands

Darksiders? Thought that was a Microsoft published one...

I never played this franchise, and the trailer did not totally sold me. I guess I'll have to have a look at it, though.

Thank you to the devs for porting this game, we really appreciate :)

This is completely and utterly amazing news. The fact that Darksiders is being brought to Linux garners a lot of good will with me, plus it increases the chances of the sequel coming to Linux exponentially. The game came out in 2010 for crying out loud! Marvellous! Love this sort of effort.
