Duke Anniversary Game?

Postby gpa-gone-west » Fri Aug 26, 2016 9:55 am

Maybe its been mentioned already, but is there a 20th anniversary edition/re-imaging of Duke Nukem 3D coming out?

http://dukenukem.com/

There is a countdown on the page at the moment, 7 days to go. The Atomic Edition of Duke Nukem 3D was released in November 1996. :-k

Well, it's from Gearbox, so it's not 3DRealms trying to pull another fast one at least.

Not sure what it might be. A remake of DN3D could be on the cards, though I wouldn't be surprised if they just did a similar thing to Shadow Warrior Classic Redux.

Are you implying Gearbox is a sign of quality and integrity? ;)

I'm implying that it's actually going to be Duke Nukem, for better or worse.

A rebuild of D3D could be awesome, but it's such a well balanced FPS they could easily cock it up. Wait and see.

And if not we always have Eduke3D for free to play.

Now if only Blood could get the same treatment from the above *goes off topic....*

Funny you should mention EDuke32. Apparently the guy involved was brought in by gearbox to work on a Duke 3D remaster but wasn't offered a job so he went on a very long rant at how shitty the whole project is, Duke is going to say "BAZINGA", the game drops to 10fps whenever you fire a gun and other fun things. Then he was offered a job at Gearbox, deleted his rant and is now saying everything is great. :-k

I'd have thought anyone who wanted Duke Nukem 3D would have the Megaton Edition or the Atomic Edition already.

Was that Gobeille per chance as there is a lawsuit being handled by the courts, over Gearbox trying to shaft him out of his royalties. Which still hasn't been resolved so far.

Or is this another guy from the team behind EDuke32?

That's the guy. Judging from his twitter posts he's working for Gearbox in some capacity, they're all friends now and he's making some build engine based game which looks more than a bit shit to be honest.

His rant post was copied here, the original is no longer available: https://facepunch.com/showthread.php?t= ... st50243881

Even now it's amazing in its original 2d incarnation. A 3d rendition would be great to see.

Sometimes a game is just 'Right', a high watermark for a development team. They could never reproduce what they did with Duke3D on another game.

I've been replaying Blood from my GOG library recently. Fair Few of the old FPS would be great to get a System Shock like update from a team that loves the material. And no not Gearbox not after the "We love the alien franchise" then release colonial marines...

I also forgot how mad the level design is in having you go all over the place :lol:

The website crashed as soon as the countdown ended. I had no idea that many people still wanted a Duke Nukem game.

The big reveal is Randy Pitchford singing about bigots on Twitch. Not exaggerating at all.
