Developer Teases With Darksiders On Linux Screenshot

Posted by , | Views: 27,751
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 :)

So far the only info we have is "The first one... so far". So it's possible that the second one will also be released eventually, but it's very vague for now.

I finished the first one on PS3 a few years ago, and had given up Windows gaming by the time the second had appeared. The first game a masterpiece though. I'd happily buy it if it Linux on Steam.

Fantastic news.

Just last week I decided to finally push into the second one after so long. Easily my favorite game series that is cross platform. Hopefully I'll be able to finish the second on Linux.

Cool! too bad I already have this game. But this means maybe I can actually play it to the end for once on linux as I never finished it.
