Duke Nukem Forever Finally Arrives
- 15 year wait ends
- Crude humour epitomises main character
- M15+ rating
2K Games and Gearbox Software have finally announced that the long-awaited Duke Nukem Forever has arrived and is now available in Australia and New Zealand
Over 15 years in the making, Duke Nukem Forever hadgone from being highly anticipated when it was announced in April of 1997, to mythological status when all signs of it would disappear for years on end, to finally arriving this month.
From the game’s inception, George Broussard and his team of designers, artists and programmers at 3DRealms devoted themselves to bringing Duke Nukem Forever to market. When all appeared lost, a small team of dedicated developers, known as Triptych Studios, saved Duke Nukem Forever from what seemed like vaporware death and resurrected the game.
Apologising to no one, Duke Nukem Forever is the high-octane video game equivalent of a Hollywood summer blockbuster, claims 2K games. According to the press release the game is about “alien slayer Duke Nukem, [and] the game introduces folks to a blastastic time filled with head-popping, bone-rattling action, crude humor, statuesque women dying for affection, and catchy one-liners that will have you laughing out loud.”
