“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.”
Duke’s alien annihilation goes global in the all-new fifth episode, Alien World Order! Take down legions of alien scum, including new Firefly enemies, across 8 brand new levels from the game’s original episode designers.
Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour is set to launch for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 11, 2016 for $19.99.
