  • Graphics: NIVIDIA GeForce 7600 / ATI Radeon HD 2600

Duke Nukem Forever delayed ..again

In the Matrix, Morpheus once said that fate is not without a sense of irony. Well here we are 12 years later and the realisation that Duke Nukem Forever is once again delayed is more comical than frustrating.

In a surprisingly funny video by Gearbox Software’s Randy Pitchman, the news of a 5-week setback for one of the most anticipated games of all time almost makes me glad there’s another delay. Duke is now coming to us on June 10th (14th US).

You can still pre-order the game on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 from Amazon.

Did you contribute to Duke Nukem Forever?

Did you contribute to Duke Nukem Forever?

That is the question being asked by GearBox Software. Showing humility that the game has been in the hands of several publishers and a plethora of developers, GearBox wants to acknowledge as many people as possible who worked on the game over the years.

They have a form whereby you can submit your own personal contributions, and you will be recognised in the game. A mammoth undertaking no doubt but I have to tip my hat to them, I think it’s a great idea.

Nukem is coming to PC, Xbox and PS3 on May the 3rd, Amazon are taking pre-orders on the standard edition for $46.99.

Duke Nukem Forever to use Steamworks DRM

Duke Nukem Forever to use Valve's Steamworks

If you’re looking forward to Duke Nukem Forever and are an avid Steam supporter it will please you to hear that Gearbox just announced they will be using Valve’s DRM mechanism to distribute the game.

This means the PC version will be tied to your Steam account, and naturally that means no Securom or other such bile. Gearbox Software made the announcement on their forums:

2K Games and Gearbox Software today officially announced that the PC release of Duke Nukem Forever will incorporate Steamworks.

What does this mean for you?

It means that regardless of where or how you buy Duke Nukem Forever on PC, your purchase will be tied to your Steam account, ensuring that you’ll always be able to install a copy of the game even if you lose your disc.

Nukem is hitting store shelves and download slots on may 3rd (US). You can pre-order from Amazon ($46.99).

Gearbox have pulled a major surprise and confirmed they have taken over development of Duke Nuke Forever. The vaporware favourite is now expected for release for the PS3, X360 and PC in 2011.

Previously stalled in development hell since 1997, fans hopes for a release were raised and dashed on a regular basis over the intervening 13 years, until original developer 3D Realms announced it was shutting down in 2009.

2K Games continued to hold the rights to the game and Gearbox picked up development duties. The game is currently in the ‘polishing phase’ of development according to Randy Pitchford, CEO of Gearbox in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.

Duke Nukem Forever Demo This Year? No, I Didnt Believe it Either

Duke Nukem ForeverSomeone somewhere MUST be making money out of the rumour mill that has been grinding for the past decade about Duke Nukem Forever.

Development of the title has been taken over by Gearbox Software, if the latest rumours are to be taken at face value. The original developer (who spun fans along with hopes of a release for well over a decade) was 3DRealms, although the publishing rights to the title currently belong to TakeTwo.

One of the more enticing  rumours set about by anonymous sources to Kotaku is that a playable demo of the game will be available this year.

It’s a glimmer of hope for fans inexplicably waiting on this 13 year old (and no doubt stale) game to come out I suppose, but I’m definitely not holding my breath.
