Leszek Godlewski, the developer that presented this week at GDC Europe on advanced Linux game programming, just shared that Darksiders 2 will be coming to Linux.

Darksiders 2 is the latest title that Leszek's been porting for Linux gaming fans. Darksiders II is an action rol-playing "hack and slash" game that was originally released back in 2012 for all major platforms sans OS X and Linux. Nordic Games, whom Leszek is employed by, acquired the rights to several titles last year via their acquisition of some THQ assets. Nordic Games has proven to be fairly Linux friendly and this is another step in the right direction.

The Linux port of Darksiders II was originally confirmed to Joystiq. Embedded below is the game's official trailer. No release date for the Linux port has been set at this time.
