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, ComputerGames.ro, 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.

That video is definitely intriguing (IE I want to scream like a little girl,) but this is 3D Realms we're talking about.

Some things that came to mind:

  • Plastic. Shiny plastic. Glossy plastic. Nearly reflective-plastic. Super plastic.

  • I do really like the four specific glimpses we get. Definitely Duke Nukem monsters, hints of humor, hints of interesting levels.

  • I really want to see the size of the levels. The 2001 video implied a city that we could run amuck through (or at least very large sections of it at a time) - is that still true?

  • I dig the lighting, especially for a Duke Nukem game. It's good in the gym, but I like the first tease (assault trooper?/cop car/bus) and the way they all got lit up

  • I really like this trailer, but I think the 2001 one was better. I know, I know, this is just a teaser video, but that 2001 video rocked my world - the game seemed absolutely, insanely amazing and would have been even sweeter with the anniversary aspect.

  • But more than anything, it just means they need to release a full trailer and screenshots. ASAP. Immediately. Yesterday, if possible! ;)

  • <3 Duke Nukem theme song, updated slightly <3

  • Voice sounds great to me. Definitely Duke Nukem and equal parts ghetto (syncing up with the previous game) and slightly updated (it has been over a decade, after all.)

  • Excluding the extreme plastic look, I think it looks very good. Not necessarily amazing, but they're going to have to tie that into their release schedule. If this is due soon and/or will run extremely well on current hardware (something akin to Bioshock,) I am all for it. If this is still a year away and going to be a super high end game (something akin to Crysis,) I would have to imagine they missed the ball somewhat.

  • More than anything, it's an issue of what 3DR does now. We were previously told they would shut up and now show anything until it was ready...and now we have a teaser video. Likewise, we were given a six-month time frame of talking about the game, prior to its release. 3DR really should - immediately - swamp us with DNF information, else there is no reason not to expect this to be another lump of six-year b*llsh*t.

  • Always bet on Duke.
