Duke Nukem Forever Release Date Set, Screens & Trailer Released
This is it. This is really, really and undeniably it. The proper release date... or is it? Well, as far as 2K Games and Gearbox are concerned, May 6, 2011 is now the official release date for Duke Nukem Forever.

"When I said goodbye to 3D Realms and the original Duke Nukem 3D team in 1997 and soon after founded Gearbox Software, I never in my wildest dreams imagined that a day like today would come," said Gearbox president Randy Pitchford in a new, fancy and official announcement. "Today I am proud, humbled and even astounded to announce that the day is coming at last for all gamers to be a part of video game history: Duke Nukem Forever will launch worldwide this May!"

Here are the two (count 'em people!!!), TWO new screenshots:

"After 12 F*(@!ing years it SHOULD be"
Doesnt look too good honestly.
I was expecting better graphics than this.
This looks like an Inde release. Disappointed

Marku5K Jan 21 2011, 08:26 am EST

It took way to long... I'll pass on playing it...

Prodigy in the soundtrack?? haha, already love it!:D
Duffey Jan 21 2011, 09:36 am EST
Serious sam eat ur heart out. I want this to destroy all other crappy fps
GrgoljBlaster Jan 21 2011, 09:49 am EST
They should've changed the title, it would be a blast if the game called "Duke Nukem Forever" never actually got released, you know, to continue the meme. But still, I can't wait to play this :)
Duffey Jan 21 2011, 10:54 am EST
I wonder how long we would have to wait for DLC for this game ? hmmm 6 years maybe atleast its better than HL episode 3
tei187 Jan 21 2011, 11:10 am EST
2 screenshots... bloody miserable. they really don't know how to treat the audience, eh?
greenberet Jan 21 2011, 12:20 pm EST
Culmination of all action cliche's. Duke is the king.

Juxtapose Jan 21 2011, 12:31 pm EST
It looks fun, which is the most important thing. I'll want to try a demo before buying, of course.
  tei187: a demo? you really want to wait 5 years more?

Annihilator Jan 21 2011, 01:08 pm EST
It does look enjoyable. Not exactly revolutionary, but definately looks worthy of at least giving it a good test run.
EricHalfBee Jan 21 2011, 01:53 pm EST
It's looks rude and dumb. That's probably a good thing. Anyone remember 'I'm gonna rip off your head and **** down your neck. Aghhh.' I bet you do.
PanteraFan666 Jan 21 2011, 03:21 pm EST
its almost time to kick ass and chew bubble gum. Awesome.
  Duffey: 12 years that must be some really old bubble gum
PanteraFan666: I know Im actually sad, this game never really impres…
Cheddar Jan 21 2011, 03:54 pm EST
I'd advise caution regarding this game. Don't pre-order. Other than the obvious red flag of it being a patched-up job by a completely second-hand studio...

It's probably wise to keep in mind that what was funny and clever to you back when you were 12 years old or whatever may not have quite the same charm now that you're an adult.

If DNF is going to succeed here in 2011, it will need to have grown up a bit, along with its audience. And that remains to be seen.
  Juxtapose: ^ This. And unless there's some great pre-order bonu…
Ranalome Jan 21 2011, 04:07 pm EST
Hell has frozen over. Don't care how dated it looks. This is gonna be freakin' awesome!!
f0u666 Jan 21 2011, 04:28 pm EST
This is gonna be the best game of all time. It doesn't matter how many years it took to develop and I don't fucking care about the graphics (which look perfect to me). THIS IS DUKE NUKEM! WAKE UP!!!
Morkrul Jan 21 2011, 04:41 pm EST
i thought it was released already, at least jahtzee has a review
Whisky Jan 21 2011, 05:42 pm EST
$10 bin, here we come!
  LongJohn: Yeah lol, the hype stinks like fail
Marku5K Jan 21 2011, 11:49 pm EST
Come on guys lighten up. It's Duke fucking Nukem!!!!
antonphd Jan 22 2011, 12:32 am EST
why'd they fuzz out the good bits? i wanted to see those giant monster titties!
Alchi Jan 22 2011, 12:37 am EST
Pixelated alien tri-tits?

Oh that's a disappointment. And bums as well? I thought they were cool with censorship people.

Anyway I'm vulgar and immature. I'm gonna love this game then.
GrgoljBlaster Jan 22 2011, 04:44 am EST
Don't worry about censorship, they had to blur the naughties so Youtube won't block the video, the game doesn't censor stuff. At least, that's what people who played the game at PAX claim.
Marku5K Jan 22 2011, 05:39 am EST
Duke Nukem: Yo ho ho, and a bottle of Jack!
Marku5K Jan 22 2011, 05:55 am EST
Simply Epic!!
Terminator Jan 22 2011, 07:36 am EST
No thanks. I'm saving my gaming money for Deus Ex: Human Revolution!
  tei187: yeah... DE:HR is more likely to be released ;)
Fuckd__4_Life Jan 22 2011, 10:07 am EST
I want this came to succeed because honestly, it is THE only FPS currently that looks different from others. THE ONLY. Every other fucking FPS is based in a war. Duke will bring the 'fun' back in FPS.

Hail to the King, bitches!
ZeroWolf Jan 22 2011, 04:58 pm EST
Damn! This thing uses Unreal Engine 2 that's heavily modified. Doesn't look revolutionary but doesn't look bad either.
