Darksiders 2 Confirmed For Linux

Posted by , | Views: 29,727

Some fantastic news today folks as Reinhard Pollice from Nordic Games has let it slip that Darksiders 2 will join Darksiders in gaining a Linux version!

QuoteLast year we explored who Nordic Games was following its $4.9 million acquisition of THQ assets during the company's liquidation auction; this year we wanted to know where it was going with all that loot. Regarding former THQ properties, the company is currently producing Darksiders for Linux and Mac, with plans to release Darksiders 2 on the platforms in the future.


While it doesn't include a direct quote about Darksiders 2 in the above sourced article it is backed up by the developer porting Darksiders who tweeted it out:

Ooops, @ElMegalomator let it slip. ;) @darksiders 2 will come to #Linux, too!

About Darksiders 2
Awakened by the End of Days, Death, the most feared of the legendary Four Horsemen, embarks upon a quest to restore mankind, and redeem his brother’s name. Along the way, the Horseman discovers that there are far worse things than an earthly Apocalypse, and that an ancient grudge may threaten all of Creation . . .

What do you make to this news? Looks like Nordic really do love Linux!

Also when asking when Darksiders will come to Linux the developer replied with:

@gamingonlinux Can't talk specific dates, but really, really soon!

More good news for Linux gaming! I like that the whole series is coming over and not just the most recent game. That's dedication! Money will be spent! Will it just be Steam or will it come to GOG as well?

Amazing news. I loved the second game even though the difficulty was somewhat inconsistent. Have never finished the first game though: having to deal with fps like gameplay made me ragequit.

Lapinopl - How about Red faction guys?

That's an entire copy of the source we use which doesn't mention RF coming to Linux.

True, but now its highly possible that they will release it on Linux, since 2k seems to be on board of the Linux train. I'm just throwing it out there

I’d prefer if Leszek Godlewski was working on improving loading times for Deadfall Adventures. But of course they’ve already got my money for that game…
