Duke Nukem Forever confirmed for next year
Duke Nukem Forever has to be one of the most accurately titled games ever christened, given that we have literally waited forever for it to appear.
The game has been in development for some thirteen years now, and we still fondly remember playing the original Duke on LAN when it was out in 1996 (falling in-between Doom and Quake).
Anyway, it seems that Duke Nukem Forever is happening after all, with 2K Games announcing that it will finally be released on PC, Xbox and PS3 in 2011. So come next year, he’ll be back, and he’ll doubtless still be out of chewing gum.
Christoph Hartmann, President of 2K Games, commented: “After a hiatus from the video game world, Duke Nukem is back and better than ever. The return of the King from the glory days of shooters will satisfy our patient, die-hard fans… Duke Nukem Forever is a testament to the era of when shooters were bodacious and fun.”
Expect to be battling aliens once again, expect the return of the pig cops, along with shrink rays, scantily clad digital women, and of course most of all, expect some pillock in multiplayer to spend an entire deathmatch camping in an air vent cackling with pipe bomb detonator in his sweaty hand.
The game’s sense of humour sounds like it’s been sharpened even further, with the ability to read adult magazines, and draw crude doodles on whiteboards, apparently. And we hope they reprise the cinema level – nothing beat bursting through that big screen with all guns blazing.
