Lots of news on Duke Nukem Forever's Muliplayer Game Modes and Weapons/Abilities! !
(Above is a leaked photo of a deathmatch in DNF from xbox magazine, reminds me of Toy Story. This may be the result of the Shrinker Gun)
In Duke Nukem Forever you don't play boring Capture the Flag, you play CAPTURE THE BABE! No screenshots of this babe capturing yet, but in this multiplayer game mode you run around carrying ladies. But from being carried, the "babe" apparently freaks out a bit, so you have to give her a slap on the butt to calm...her down? Not much details on it, so feel free to speculate! Maybe if you go too long without these reasurring slaps, she wiggles away or something, I'm interested to see what other twists will come a long in Duke Nuken Forever.
Game Modes- . Dukematch and TeamDukeMatch are both deathmatch oriented games. Hail to the King is King of the Hill type of gameplay. All game modes are 8 players, 4v4. And the "Capture the Babe" stated above.
Weapons- will be pistol, shotgun, ripper chaingun, pipebomb, rpg, shrinker, railgun, freezer, devastator and tripbomb. Also you can only carry two primary weapons at once in addition to having pipebombs and tripbombs. Also JETPACKS SON! only in multiplayer, not single...O_O
Customization - characters can get points by getting kills and achivements, also bonus points for "funny kills" (like pipe-bomb suicide) As expected, every shooter has a lvling system now a days, going to be interesting finding out what unlcocks Duke will have.
Awesome powerups- Steroids let Duke do 1 hit kill punches, run faster but cant use guns, leaves him immune to shrinker. Shrinker turns people into Mini-Duke, only do 10% of dmg. And HoloDuke allows him to be cloaked and do cool melee kills.
Do you like 4v4 game types and the idea of carrying babes? Does "Duke Sauce" sound delicious? Leave a comment below with your ideas and thoughts. I wasn't too interested until now, the MP sounds extremely fun. Don't be a Jimmy.
What would Duke Do? These two new videos showcases some of what Duke and Duke Nukem Forever are all about. Check it out!
We've all been put in situations where we had to do something that would most likely be frowned upon by others. Duke Nukem however takes it to a whole other level. Check out these two trailers, and ask yourself. What Would Duke Do?
DO NOT ATTEMPT AT HOME!!!!
Tell us what you think in the comments. Don't be a Jimmy!
Gearbox is finishing up DNF for Take Two
Well, it's official. As rumored 3 weeks ago, Gearbox has picked up development on Duke Nukem Forever and there is a playable demo on the show floor at PAX right now.
I'm not sure how I feel about this, as Duke Nukem 3D was a game I spent a lot of time with... in 1996. Games have come a long way since then and Duke needs a lot more than just a graphical update to stay competitive. Will there be online co-op? Can you level up like in Borderlands? How many weapon types are there? It's not coming until 2011 so we have plenty of time to find out, but from the video I've seen of the demo, it looks like a late 90's shooter (except with better graphics, of course). Beyond its name, I don't see what this game has going for it.
I really hope this doesn't steal too much focus from the inevitable Borderlands sequel (and I'm still looking forward to the new DLC for Borderlands set to release this month).
Now June 14th in the US and June 10 everywhere else.
A special message from Randy Pitchford
I hesitated in labeling this "news" as we are talking about Duke Nukem Forever here.
Duke Nukem has been around since 1991 and has always left an impression in everyone's mind. A group from 3D Realms has got together to create a history of the King of video games. Check it out!
Also it wouldn't be a Duke Nukem game without some babes. Check out this new trailer!
Duke Nuken is scheduled to come out June 14th! Don't be a Jimmy pre order now!
This is the one you've been waiting for? I've been waiting for 10 years or is 12? I'm not going to say anything. Please leave a comment.

Random sites and even Major Nelson say the pre-order has been announced for Duke Nukem Forver ... Where's the beef?
Duke Nukem release date still not official, demo still unannounced
BatRastered spotted it earlier in the day on some random site. Duke Nukem Forver pre-order has been announced and the release date is February 1st 2011.
That's right, that's what Amazon says. Even though, it's still the fake box art. That pre-order page also says: "Official pricing and release date have not been announced by the publisher. These are estimates only and subject to change."

Amazon has also had this pre-order available since September 1, 2010. [Gearbox Software Forums]Read full story...
I'm pretty sure this game isn't coming out when they say it is.
Amazon is still taking pre-orders, but the date has moved back from February 1 to May 31.
Official pricing and release date have not been announced by the publisher. These are estimates only and subject to change.
There is no official box art on the site, and the description for the XBOX 360 version still has the info from Borderlands on it.
Don't be fooled!

After all the hype and drama about the game here's some good news.
"With the Duke Nukem Forever demo just around the corner for members of the First Access Club there, Gearbox Software and 2K Games are thrilled to announce that the First Access Club benefits don't stop there!
Any First Access Club member who has registered as of today will receive the very first downloadable Duke Nukem Forever multiplayer add-on pack for free when it's released!* Surprise!
Thanks again for all of your support, and always bet on Duke!
*Platform availability and eligibility is subject to local laws and regulations."
So we will get the first multiplayer add on pack for free, now that was worth it. I got my access free by getting a game I already wanted (Borderlands GOTY) so getting the demo was a nice bonus. But this looks like the knew the fans were still looking for something better after the crap with the date change and a demo just over a week before the game comes out. Gearbox and 2K games have made a real smart choice here. I was surprsed that there wasn't some joke about Duke coming more than once. Maybe they are saving it for later.
So what do you think now? Was this a decent promo afterall? Or are you salty about a DLC announcement before the game even drops?
Hail to the King baby!

It's Duke Nukem Jimmy! I think I might be the most excited person I know about Duke Nukem. When the pig Jimmys are throwing jars of pickles and mayonnaise at Duke ... Awesome. This game is going to shock a lot of people. At least on that first playthrough.
Sometimes bigger isn't always better!
Duke Nukem Forever - Shrinkage
A full on launch trailer for you Jimmies still on the fence.
Hail to the king, baby!
