Darksiders was supposed to come out for Linux a long time ago and never happened. The developers haven't forgotten about it, but it seems the issues are proving difficult to fix and they have been busy.

'Darksiders Warmastered Edition' just launched and the inevitable happened; someone posted on their Steam forum asking about Linux.

From their wording, honestly, it sounds rather unlikely that it will ever come (link):
MegalomaniacNGWe tried to pick up work on the Linux port but we couldnt fix the remaining issues it had. Instead we focused on Warmastered Edition. Maybe Warmastered Edition will get a Linux port one day. I am sorry for this but I cant tell you anything better right now.

Part of the problem is that the original person in charge of the port left the developer, so it got put further down their list.

That's one title I'm putting firmly in my 'forget me' pile, sadly.

Thanks Khudsa for posting it in our forum. Article taken from

Sad news, but nice to have some honest communication.
They should hire someone experienced like icculus who is able to fix their issues.

I wonder what the actual problem is.

The first and the last game I've bought because of a promised port.

They gave some more info in another comment:
QuoteWe went the full native way and there are two issues left - one is very weird with rendering portals and it means that the voidwalker part doesnt work at all as you cant see the exit of the portal and the other has to do with sounds. But again - this was on the old Darksiders code base and not Warmastered so no point in going forward with that.

worse case, they could just wine wrap it. I'd be fine with that. this would be a good candidate for it. along with Darksiders II.

Never buy games when Linux port is not releasing YET. Vote wallet, buy only games with Linux support.

I tried to run this game though winE, and the cinematics didn't work...

I think it is pretty clear they never even worked on it. All progress stopped once the new guy took over, he probably does not know Linux at all so they just started working on Windows projects exclusively.

I think we all have our exceptions, but I generally try to live by that rule these days.

Hopefully some day they'll do it. I always like when I see a new edition to Linux from my game library.
