Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary Edition World Tour

Hail to the king, baby! Gearbox Software reveals Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary Edition World Tour, a rerelease of the original Duke Nukem 3D from 1996. A countdown to this news began last week, but a release for Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 is just over a month away on October 11th. As seen in this trailer, the appearance of the first-person shooter hasn't changed much in 20 years, but this will also include some all-new content. The new stuff is from creators of the original game, including the designs of Allen Blum III and Levelord, the music of Lee Jackson, and the wisecracking of Alex St. John, the voice of Duke. Here's word:
Celebrating the anniversary of the game that helped revolutionize the first-person shooter genre, Gearbox Publishing is pleased to announce Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary Edition World Tour alongside a first teaser trailer. This new edition of the landmark FPS contains the 1996 classic Duke Nukem 3D in its full glory, along with extra, never-before-seen content.

Set to launch on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC via Steam® on October 11, 2016 at an MSRP of $19.99, Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary Edition World Tour contains all-new content including:

  • “Hail to the King, Baby!” – Complete all-new episode containing eight original levels created by the original designers of Duke Nukem 3D, Allen Blum III and Richard “Levelord” Gray
  • “Come Get Some!” – All-new original music composed by Lee Jackson, original author of Duke Nukem’s iconic theme “Grabbag” and sound designer for Duke Nukem 3D, along with new one-liners from the voice of Duke himself, Jon St. John
  • “I’ve got Balls of Steel!” – All-new behind-the-scenes original development team commentary accessible in-game
  • “I’m Lookin’ Good!” – Play the game using the original 1996 graphics engine or toggle in real time to play with the original content rendered at high fidelity and blistering frame rate using Gearbox’s all-new “True3D Rendering” mode

“When I first moved out to Texas to join the Duke Nukem 3D development team in the mid-nineties, I could not possibly predict that we were all going to be part of the emergence of the 3D First Person videogame genre that would ultimately impact the entire videogame industry,” said Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. “Making it possible for Allen, Richard, Lee and Jon to all come back together 20 years later to bring a whole new episode to the classic game is just one of those rare and incredible things that I hope will bring joy and happiness to hardcore videogame fans new and old.”

Other than the extra Episode levels... I don't think this is any different than the Megaton Edition... which I already have.

Unless that "True3D" mode somehow looks better.

It does look better, but looking better for a 1996 game on the build engine is subjective I'd say. Yes they smooth the hell out of the textures and it runs at a rock solid frame rate and they cleaned up the lighting a bit and shadows look better as well. But there's only so much you can do really. I mean its just a glorified source port-style mod that makes it look better for the most part (not a mod but you get my point).
