The classic epic first person shooting game Duke Nukem 3D is back with a bang, and long-term fans are excited about getting modern content to play with and crude witticisms to laugh at. At this year’s PAX West event, Gearbox announced the return of its classic Duke Nukem 3D and that it would be releasing a remastered Duke Nukem 3D 20th Anniversary Edition World Tour by developer 3D Realms.
Gearbox Software’s Duke Nukem 3D 20th Anniversary World Tour is scheduled to begin from October 11 and will cost approximately $20 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC gamers (via Steam) to play. The game isn’t just a simple re-release for compatibility with modern platforms, but rather a completely remastered edition of the classic Duke Nukem game. Old school players even have the option of switching between the latest and the original version on the fly.
The recent overhaul of the game features a fifth episode and eight new levels crafted by the game’s original episode designers Allen Blum III and Richard “Levelord” Gray. It also includes musical contributions from the composer of Duke Nukem 3D, who also created the popular Duke Nukem 3D theme “Grabbag”. The Duke Nukem voice actor Jon St. John is also making his way back to the recording studio to voice some fantastic new duke Nukem lines.
“Frag like it’s 1996 – this time with even more asses to kick! Join the world’s greatest action hero in Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour as he saves Earth once again, kicking alien ass and saving babes across the globe along the way,” says the Gearbox description.
Pre-ordering of the latest edition is already in process. Gearbox also released a short trailer of the game to provide us a glimpse of its many new elements. Have a look for yourself.
