Some fourteen years late, Duke Nukem Forever finally came out last week to disappointing reviews, but that doesn’t mean the Duke himself and his games are down for the count forever. Danish studio Interceptor Interactive have apparently been given the green light by Gearbox Software to continue development on a high definition remake of Duke Nukem 3D, subtitled Reloaded.
The game is a non-commercial project (meaning it might be released for free) and will aside from including a shiny facelift, feature voice acting from the original Duke Nukem characters as well as 16-player multiplayer deathmatches. Modes like “Capture the Babe” are sure to bring some much needed laughs to the seriousness of today’s modern first-person shooting games such as Call of Duty and Battlefield 3.
For some in-game screenshots, you can check out the batch at CVG. In the meantime, if you did pick up a copy of Duke Nukem Forever, how was it? Worth every penny and worth the 14 year wait? Or do you agree with the critics that that juvenile jokes and antics of the game are too immature for your tastes?
