It's alive! Duke Nukem Forever breaks out of vapour trail

Balls of steel, baby, balls of steel!



Duke Nukem Forever is the video games world's equivalent of the flying car: mothballed in the garage.



Twelve years in the making, this infamous slice of vapourware is set to for release in 2011. Really.

Take-Two Interactive, the publisher, even issued a press release today announcing its impending release so it must be true. And attendees at the Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle this weekend can get to play with a finished, but "unpolished" version.

What will they see?

Pig cops, alien shrink rays and enormous alien bosses won't stop our hero from accomplishing his one and only goal: to save the world, save the babes and to be a bad-ass while doing it. The King of All Shooters is back with over-the-top weapons, massive aliens and unprecedented levels of interactivity. This game puts pedal to the metal and tongue firmly in cheek, among other places. Shoot hoops, lift weights, read adult magazines, draw crude messages on whiteboards or ogle one of the many beautiful women that populate Duke's life; that is if you can pull yourself away long enough from kicking ass and taking names. Duke Nukem was and will forever be immortalized in gaming history, and this is his legend.



Last year, 3D Realms, the studio responsible for making this first person shooter fly, went bust after spending 10 years on the project. Gearbox took over and has licked Duke Nukem Forever into shape on PS3, XBox 360 and Window PC formats.

Gearbox is rather pleased with how it's doing. Say studio boss Randy Pitchford: "I am thrilled to be in a position with the trust, power and means to make it happen. Am I crazy? Balls of steel, baby, balls of steel!"

Probably the best use of a sound board ever.


ETA: Beat to it.

no doubt. I gave up on the game after the 15th or so launch date in the early 2000's.

here's to hoping.

Yeah, sure... We've heard THAT one before.
Should I be an asshole and call dupe? I just don't know how to fit a decade worth of news stories, press releases, and forum posts from all over the Internet into one post...

Hey, this is where I saw my 1st virtual strippers back then ! That's a looong time...

Is it April already?
Link Posted: 9/3/2010 2:49:23 PM EDT
Yeah, there's been about a million joke press releases about this thing finally being released over the past 10 years...
Link Posted: 9/3/2010 2:49:55 PM EDT
Even IF it does come out, I predict massive fail.
As fast as the envelope is being pushed by games; they have so much to overcome, I just don't see it.
Link Posted: 9/3/2010 2:49:56 PM EDT
Hope the graphics are better than those seen in the screen shots... Shit looks like Doom 3 from 04.
Link Posted: 9/3/2010 2:54:29 PM EDT
Yeah right... I remember about a dozen of these press releases coming out in the past. Never gonna happen.
Link Posted: 9/3/2010 2:56:25 PM EDT
I'll believe it when I'm pressing spacebar to tip the virtual strippers

They better not be fucking with us.

Heads will roll.

It will only be fitting if Duke carries a Shrike. One Unicorn deserves another.

Who gives a fuck?

It's duke nukem.

The whole point is to shoot aliens with ridiculously large guns, stare at boobs, and listen to funny catch phrases.

Most purchasers hadn't even dropped their nuts when the original came out.

Yeah, but the first one looked fantastic. Probably one of the best looking games of its time (Quake had a groundbreaking engine but it looked like shit...brown, gray and red were apparently the only color id could afford after makign the engine). Sweet graphics are part and parcel of the Duke Experience.

Are you kidding me, given the advanced age of those that played the original. I mean they can't be known as the game that lead to thousands of heart attacks

Meh, Ill download it, all 600 million gigabytes of it!

Fucking string me along with release dates always 6 months away for 12 years. The constant canceling and relaunching on a new engine and starting over. Eat it 3D Realms.

I hope to god this doesn't delay Aliens: Colonial Marines any further.
