Everything You Need To Know About Duke Nukem's Return

Gaming's most testosterone-fuelled alpha male, Duke Nukem, is back and ready to kick space alien arse in Duke Nukem Forever, the game we never ever thought they'd finish.

In the unlikely event that the return of Duke Nukem Forever somehow didn't register on your news radar this weekend, then brace yourself. More than a decade in development, with tens of millions of dollars sunk into the project, Duke Nukem Forever will arrive in 2011. The most vaporous of video game vapourware is real, it was playable at this weekend's PAX convention, and it is now in the capable hands of Aliens: Colonial Marines and Borderlands developer Gearbox Software.

We played Duke Nukem Forever at PAX this weekend. We spoke to the man that now owns Duke Nukem. And we learned how the obscenely late first-person shooter found its way to a new home. Catch up on all of Kotaku's Duke Nukem Forever coverage right here.


    I said it before, but I'll say it again; WOOOP WOOOP!!!

    Goodbye Gearbox. This game will never be released. :)

    I hope to God that this is released. Musta played through duke 3d about 1000 times. awesome game

    I can't wait to get back to kicking ass and chewing bubble gum. Duke Nukem 3D was made so well in its time and its still fun to play. Like Doom on crack with *better* graphics and more hilarity.

    You know, I've been saying this for ages now and the upcoming release of the game changes nothing: I don't give a poo about Duke Nukem any more. He's out of date, a dinosaur, a relic of a bygone age. Duke Nukem 3d was a great game for its time, but the name appeal has long since faded off this title.
