Duke Nukem Forever Teaser Video

The promised teaser video from Duke Nukem Forever is now available, just about an hour earlier than the noon CST release predicted yesterday (story). The blurb promising the trailer was updated by George Broussard at some point to temper expectations a bit, saying: "This is a teaser. It's not a full blown trailer like the 2001 trailer (but something like that is coming). I tried to be clear about that in the message board post, so just bear in mind that it's a teaser :)" The clip includes gameplay footage, Jon St. John returning as the voice of Duke, and the music of game composers Jeremy Soule and Julian Soule. It runs around a minute and ten seconds and is available in five variants, covering 720p and 480p resolutions in either QuickTime or Windows Media Player formats as well as one in iPhone format. I tried to get an answer to whether the 480p and 720p formats indicate plans for console editions, but there are no such formal announcements being made (which sounds more like a confirmation than a denial). As could be predicted, the 3D Realms Website is fairly hosed at the moment, but the trailer downloads have premiered on FileShack, and mirrors of one or more of the clips can be found ActionTrip, AtomicGamer,, FileFront, GamesFire, Gamer's Hell, PixelRage, and Primotech. An accompanying blurb on Shacknews quotes George Broussard as saying that their release date is still "when it's done," but "you can expect more frequent media releases and we're not changing engines again and we have considerable work behind us." He also does not confirm nor deny plans for console editions, but his answer seems to hint that they will happen. Shack also has a history of development of this game, offering a timeline of a project that's taken longer than NASA took to put a man on the moon.
