Absolutely they'll do more Duke Nukem. They wouldn't have purchased the license from 3D Realms if they had no long-term goals for it. That said, they've said they're not even thinking about another game until DNF is on the shelves. They're not even thinking about add-ons or DLC or anything right now. The focus is just to get DNF as good as possible and out on store shelves.

Honestly, that's the best way for them to go. After 14 years of development, they may as well put all their man-power into finishing this highly anticipated game and worry about DLC and future games later. Though, if I were them, I would do DLC first over a new game. Maybe that's just me though. I admit I've never played any of the previous games, and the only thing I associated with Duke Nukem was this game. A game, which for the majority of my life, had been one big pipe dream. Now, to see it actually happening? I'm really tempted to buy it. It's been what? 12-14 years since development began?

I had heard 14, but yeah, it's been a while. According to what I hear, it's been in development since before google even existed... I almost want to go and fact-check that, but it's 2 AM in my timezone and i should be sleeping...

Lol, now one of the mods need to retitle this thread to June instead of May.

The very beginning was the announcement of a sequel at the end of the "The Birth" episode from the Atomic Edition of Duke Nukem 3D. So we've been waiting for over 14 years, but whether development started at the same time, I don't know. It's certainly been in development since 1998 at least.

Done. If this game gets delayed again (god forbid), I refuse to fix it.

Wait - you have the power to fix it? :o You should change it to say March and then the game will be out early! :P

Ok, so fix was the wrong word to use... I should have said "change", but whatever.

Also, interesting note: we were watching the duke nukem forever trailer at work today. we made sure all the kids were out of the store. my co-worker even asked a guy if he was 18 or older. then we proceeded to watch the trailer. it was pretty awesome XD We had a nice long conversation about it.

Today is May 3rd. The day of the original release date of DNF before it was postponed to June 14th (June 10th international). But it is indeed coming on the 14th. Randy Pitchford, president and CEO of Gearbox Software has confirmed that the game is complete (all bugs squashed) and going through the certification process. http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/technologynews/view/1126444/1/.html. The article was confirmed by a Gearbox employee on their forums. The system requirements have also finally been released and they are as follows:

Minimum Specifications

  • OS: Windows XP/Vista/7
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.0 Ghz / AMD Athlon 64 X2 @ 2.0 Ghz
  • Memory: 1 Gb
  • Hard Drive: 10 Gb free
  • Video Memory: 256 MB
  • Video Card: nVidia GeForce 7600 / ATI Radeon HD 2600
  • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible
Recommended Specifications

  • OS: Windows XP/Vista/7
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.4 Ghz / AMD Athlon 64 X2 @ 2.6 Ghz
  • Memory: 2 Gb
  • Hard Drive: 10 Gb free
  • Video Memory: 512 MB
  • Video Card: nVidia GeForce 8800 GTS / ATI Radeon HD 3850
  • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible
I expect the demo to be released to First Access Club members any time now. Also, here's a new and uncensored "Come Get Some" trailer released a few days ago (NSFW).

The long wait is almost over.

I like the background music. Also, nudity on YouTube? I thought they were strictly against it.

Yeah, I was surprised by that as well. Maybe they don't care because it's CGI?
Or perhaps no one reported it yet.
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

There's an age gate which seems to appease YouTube. And it actually constantly gets reported and taken down and reuploaded lol.

So this is actually happening? I'm just surprised that the game that was the epitome of a "20XX" release date is finally coming out. At least those who have been waiting so long to play it will get the chance at last.  ;D

I've already preordered my copy from Amazon. My brother preordered the Balls of Steel Edition which comes with a cool history artbook involving all the early DNF builds and the progress up to the present. I can't wait to see it.

I'm torn - I kind of want it, mostly for the sake of buying the game with the longest development time ever, but then I see some promotional video that reminds me how disgustingly virile it is.

I'm with you, doon. I want it just because it's been so long coming (and I would really love the BoS edition for the artbook), but seeing the trailer makes me wonder if I'd really enjoy it. :P

It's raunchy and it rides the borderline as if it isn't there, but the thing is besides all that the gameplay promises to be classic and entertaining. Interactivity at its best. Like no other game has done before. I'm not into Duke for his over the top attitude, I'm in it for the gameplay.
