The brainchild of 2K Games and Gearbox Software, Nukem Forever’s legendary path to gold was paved over the course of 15 long years and can be followed on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC.
“Apologizing to no one, Duke Nukem Forever is the high-octane video game equivalent of a Hollywood summer blockbuster.”
Starring the legendary lady killer and alien slayer, it brings gamers back to a blastastic time when games were filled with head-popping, bone-rattling action, brazenly crude humor, impossibly statuesque women dying for affection, and catchy one-liners meant to make you laugh out loud.
In 2009, after many believed that Duke Nukem Forever would never be completed, but a small team of developers at Triptych Studios, along with help from Gearbox Software, Piranha Games and several others made it a full-featured triple-A title.
“Duke Nukem Forever and its journey to store shelves is legendary,” said George Broussard, creative director at 3D Realms.
“It’s an epic tale of four game development studios that banded together and did the unthinkable and shipped the unshippable.
When you play this game you will be reminded of that epic journey at every turn and in every small detail of the game.
So, brace yourselves gamers. “The character, attitude, interactivity, gameplay and political incorrectness combine to make a Duke Nukem game a unique gaming experience. In the timeless words of Duke Nukem it’s finally time to. Come be a part of gaming history.”
Fans who pre-order the title from EB Games or purchase via Xbox or PS3 can get an exclusive preview on June 3 for all platforms as Duke’s first access club members.
There are multiple ways fans can join the exclusive First Access Club, by pre-ordering the game Australia & New Zealand or by purchasing on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 system and Windows PC.
There is also a Duke Nukem Forever Balls of Steel edition, for those who want “the ultimate experience” containing premium items, such as a Duke Nukem Bust and an art book that chronicles the development of the game.
Duke Nukem Forever will make history when it launches on June 10, 2011 in Australia and New Zealand.
