The Duke Has Gone Gold

The Duke Has Gone Gold

Duke Nukem Forever, THE game that has defined delay, has finally “gone gold.”  After 15 years of development, 2K Games and Gearbox Software have finally completed the game for a PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 release.
Duke Nukem Forever is the game that was once thought to be unshippable, and yet here we are, on the precipice of history,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “Today marks an amazing day in the annals of gaming lore, the day where the legend of Duke Nukem Forever is finally complete and it takes that final step towards becoming a reality.”

Duke Nukem Forever and its journey to store shelves is legendary,” said George Broussard, creative director at 3D Realms. “It’s an epic tale of four game development studios that banded together and did the unthinkable and shipped the unshippable. When you play this game you will be reminded of that epic journey at every turn and in every small detail of the game. The character, attitude, interactivity, gameplay and political incorrectness combine to make a Duke Nukem game a unique gaming experience. In the timeless words of Duke Nukem it’s finally time to ‘Come Get Some’. Come be a part of gaming history.”

Duke Nukem Forever will be available as a regular edition, or the “Balls of Steel” edition for $99.99 on June 10, 2011.  The demo will be available for those who are part of the Duke Nukem First Access Club, on June 3, 2011.
