As this year's PAX convention is just about to start, photos from the Penny Arcade Expo show floor confirm that Duke Nukem Forever—now with more Gearbox Software—will have a strong presence at the show.

Publisher 2K Games is promising "something big" at this year's PAX get-together, which we can only assume is 3D Realms' long-promised but still undelivered over-the-top first person shooter Duke Nukem Forever, now that 2K and Gearbox have begun trotting out all manner of Duke Nukem signage and posters. The game's presence could be limited the opportunity to have your picture taken with Duke as a ****ty schoolgirl, but we've heard otherwise.

PAX 2010's kick-off is imminent. Stay tuned. And always bet on Duke.

Finally a good developer is working on it (gearbox). Im guessing 2K won that rights to further the development over 3D Realms.

2K Games has made it official. Duke Nukem Forever is alive and, well, in the hands of developer Gearbox Software, confirming our earlier reports that the Borderlands studio was helping to complete the game's absurdly long development cycle.

The publisher announced this morning in advance of PAX 2010 that Gearbox Software was on the job, picking up where developer 3D Realms left off. Gearbox plans to ship the game within the next year, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal—the WSJ says DNF is due "next year" and "currently expected to ship in 2010."

Given Duke Nukem Forever's epic development—it was first announced in 1997 as a sequel to Duke Nukem 3D—it might be wise to hedge on the later of those two release windows.

Gearbox and 2K will be showcasing the game to press and the public at this weekend's PAX convention.

After more than a decade in development, Duke Nukem Forever all but ended its production after the collapse of studio 3D Realms.

Ugh, are they playing this on 360s? Oh well, I guess with 2K breathing down your neck about getting this out as soon as possible for the consoles so they can milk it for all its worth in DLCs, Duke Nukem Forever will finally see the light of day.

Sad to hear its multi platform. We all know what that usually means.

Do we even know what game engine they are using? Please don't say UE3.

WTB HD gameplay trailers. I can barely tell what's going on in these choppy low-res streams.

Honestly how could it not be? Most games are multiplatform now. I agree it does suck when the PC version has issues, like the horrible mouse acceleration in Bioshock or the clunky interface of Oblivion and Fallout 3 (fortunately mods fixed Oblivion). 2K games however generally does a good job with their PC ports (in terms of controls, video settings, etc). However, as much as I liked Borderlands, I'm a little concerned about this one seeing as the PC interface was pretty horrible.

Of course there's always the chance that the game will totally blow. Guess we'll finally get to find out! :p

I just hope it's good. After being in development as long as it has, I doubt it'll live up to all the hype... but if it's fun and enjoyable, at least mostly capturing the spirit of the originals... I'll be happy. :)

(btw game was been shown running on a PC, but played with 360 controllers)

"However, Duke Nukem Forever is not stuck in time. It incorporates genre updates like regenerative health, aim assist, and Call of Duty-style zoom with the left trigger."

:confused::confused::confused::confused::confused:

Should have left Duke "stuck in time" for the better. :)

Hope those "updates" are for consoles only. Really don't want aim assists on the PC version. Or, at least make them optional.

Yeah, that was cool :lol:

That gamer talking about it "altering his life" too...no words for that, but hopefully they're able to capture some of the spirit of the name.

I wish them good fortune with it, hopefully it will be worth buying.
