Duke Nukem Forever has been RTM

Written by David Stellmack


Despite all of the jokes, it will actually release June 14th
Well, as unbelievable as this is going to sound, Duke Nukem Forever is gold and has been released to manufacturing. (RTM) No, we are not kidding you; and this is not some sort of an elaborate joke. It is actually going to be released on June 14th in North America.

Some are already talking about the irony and the belief that we must be in some sort of time warp, as it was thought that it would never be released. The list of developers involved with getting Duke Nukem Forever include 3D Realms, Triptych, Piranha, and of course, Gearbox, who in the end brought things together to get the title finally out the door.

2K Games will be the publisher of the title, and let’s just say the fact that the game is finally getting released isn’t lost on this company. Who knows what to expect from the title? We surely don’t; and what we have seen of it so far leaves us thinking that no matter how bad it is, it is going to sell by virtue of the fact that people are going to be curious and buy it to see what it is all about.

So, after almost 14 years of development, the time has come to see it finally being released. Those who have a membership in the Duke Nukem first Access Club will get access to the demo on June 3rd. The game is being released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Retailers that we have spoken with claim that customers are booking pre-orders for the game, so at least some people think that it is going to be released.

Our only problem with all of this is how do we know what a game with 14 years of development should look and play like? The bottom line is that it is going to be released, and no longer will the title be the biggest butt of all the jokes about never being released.

having seen the "recommended hardware "spec

i must say I am not that curious. Having been released some 6 years ago would make it worthwile.

Who knows - It might actually take me forever to check out and buy that game.

Not that I dont have the sentiment. I do and a lot of it.

Yep, I preordered this from Walmart.com yesterday (thank god for safety bonus cards). Hell, it's only $50 for PC and there is a $10 e-credit from wally world, so it's only ending up costing me $40. I remember playing DN3D back in the day and loved it, so I have to see what 14 years brings as it's sequel.

I'll laugh so hard if the game feels rushed.

I wonder what was Duke doing all these years, maybe Operation Re-population lasted lil too much :)

Sales of Angry Birds definitely were driven by the fact that to play it you need a 16 core CPU with an over 9000 mhz GPU. There couldn't be any chance in existence that people actually considered the content and dedication to making a really good game, nope, not a chance at that. :-*

You should have gone through Steam that way more of your spent money would have gone to the DEVELOPERS and not a company helping to kill off American manufacturing jobs. Steam takes 30% whereas most publishers take like 70-90% of the money up front.

Sry developer, I've have completely forgotten Duke and has very little interest in it... Much like Diablo 3. Time will kill franchise, sometime.

Recommended Minimum Specs:

Intel Processor - Core 2 Duo E4500 2.2GHz
AMD Processor - Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4800+
Nvidia Graphics Card - GeForce GT 240
ATI Graphics Card - Radeon HD 3850
RAM (Memory) - 2 GB
Hard Disk Space - 10 GB
Direct X - 9

I think this is decent enough.

Not surprising looking at the graphic...I am curious about the length.
