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.”

I honestly wish they'd kept that part as is, instead of tacking new lines on...

My friends and I played this multiplayer for 100's of hours over dial-up modem and LAN parties when it came out.

I'd absolutely love to be able to play multiplayer Deathmatch over Steam.

Is that going to be possible?

I love these old-school graphics and actually prefer it for the most part. As a matter of fact, just yesterday I was playing Wolf 3D (well, Spear of Destiny to be exact).

I'm definitely getting this for both PC and PS4. I <3 me some build engine.

It's so crazy to think it's been 20 years. This and Quake were some mindblowing shit, back in the day...

Back in the day, my girlfriend said that I am too old to play games. 20 years later, I am still gaming and changed my girlfriend instead of my hobby.

The Build engine was amazing and the Duke 3D levels were top notch two decades ago. I have to admit, though, that I get low level eye cancer from the video. Yeah, I know, contents over flashy glam and glitter, but a rebuilt game in a current gen (or last gen) graphics engine would have been better in my opinion.

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).

Willing to bet money that the co-op multiplayer will be as broken and unplayable as in Megaton edition, or even worse. They probably designed the new episode without co-op in mind, too, because, well, everyone forgot how to do it.
