E3 2011: Duke Nukem Forever (PC) Preview
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 06.11.2011



While at E3, 411mania.com got the chance for a special behind closed doors preview of Duke Nukem Forever. Duke Nukem Forever is the latest installment of the Duke Nukem franchise that has had a long and tumultuous development period where many people believed it would never see the light of day after spending over a decade in development purgatory. The game hits stores soon and 2K Games gave us a chance to play the game's multiplayer format. Unfortunately we were not able to get a look at the game's single player campaign or story mode.



So in the multiplayer demo, we got to play in a red team vs. blue team death match. You can have up to 8 people playing in multiplayer mode at one time. In the multiplayer demo you are offered a great amount of customization options for Duke. You can give Duke things like a mohawk or even a samurai helmet which is pretty cool. The controller I was using for the PC worked very well and I really liked the controls for this game for a first person shooter. It is very playable and pick up and play. The map area we got to play has tons of weapons and various pick ups you can find to enhance your play. Such weapons include the Shrink Ray and the classic Freeze Ray.



The Shrink Ray is neat but I love the Freeze Ray because you can freeze your enemies into blocks of ice and smash them. There are tons of other cool weapons such as rocket launchers and lasers available. You can also find a special supplement item that jacks Duke up and gives him a limited amount of time as like a Super Duke and you can use your fists to pummel your rivals. The multiplayer was a lot of fun and the action and carnage was great. I was a little disappointed I didn't get to see how the single player mode looked at all since that is what I was really hoping to play at the convention.



Duke Nukem Forever hits stores on June 14 on Windows PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 from 2K Games and is developed by Gearbox Software. Parents take note this is an M-Rated game.
