Duke Nukem Forever launch trailer is NSFW, demo is out for some

By on June 3, 2011, 9:00 AM

2K Games and Gearbox Software have released the Duke Nukem Forever launch trailer and boy does it look good. I haven't seen a trailer so blatantly NSFW that still makes me want to play the game.

The trailer actually came out earlier this week, but I figured it would be too much of a tease to post it then. Instead, I'm posting it today. That's because if you preorderd the title from select outlets and became a Duke Nukem First Access Club Member, you now get to play the demo for all platforms.

Gamers have waited over a decade to play the official sequel to Duke Nukem. The title was originally announced by 3D Realms in 1997. The project experienced all types of problems, however, and it was passed over to Triptych Games and Gearbox Software in 2009, with multiplayer components provided by Piranha Games.

Half a year ago, Gearbox confirmed that development on the title was being completed. Given how long the game had been in such a state (some 14 years), there were still many skeptics. Then the game was demoed live, but many would still not believe.

Five months ago, the game was given a set of release dates: May 3, 2011 in North America and May 6, 2011 in the rest of the world. Two months ago, this was pushed back to June 14 in North America, and on June 10 in the rest of the world.

Last month, the official PC requirements were released. This was followed by an announcement that the game is coming to OnLive, meaning you can skip the requirements if you want. Finally, the companies announced that the game has gone gold.
