Arriving on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on October 12, Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary Edition World Tour reunites some of the original game’s creators to add a new eight-level chapter to the 1996 classic. Gearbox Software’s brought some of the band back together for Duke Nukem 3D’s 20th birthday, including original designers Allen Blum III and Richard “Levelord” Gray, who’ve created a new episode for the game. Original theme song composer and Duke Nukem 3D sound designer Lee Jackson is on music duty, and the voice of Duke, Jon St. John, returns for some fresh one-liners.
Fans can play through the entire game using the original 1996 graphics, or go high fidelity with Gearbox’s “True3D Rendering” mode, swappable on the fly.
Rounding out the package is a new behind-the-scenes original development team commentary accessible in-game, which is the entire reason I’ll be playing come October 11. Can’t get enough commentary.
Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary Edition World Tour will cost $US19.99 ($26) on Steam and $26.95 on Xbox One (Playstation 4 release details have not yet been confirmed). Check out the teaser trailer below. It’s very, very Duke Nukem-y.
