VIDEO: Duke Nukem Forever Launch Trailer; DLC

Thursday Gearbox Software released the launch trailer for Duke Nukem Forever, stomping any doubts that the previous "gone gold" announcement was just a big joke and that fans would have to wait another decade. But it seems that June 14 (this month!) is a definite date, and the launch trailer now serves as an official invitation to the post-E3 party.

In addition to the trailer, Gearbox revealed that members of the la-de-dah First Access Club will get an extra bonus on launch day. "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!" the developer teased. "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!"

Gearbox didn't go into details on what the DLC will include, but fans may receive extra maps, weapons and/or unlocked characters. Eager fans can still get into the First Access Club by (1) pre-ordering the game from select retailers or (2) by purchasing the Borderlands Game of the Year Edition on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 system and Windows PC. This exclusive membership also grants early access to the playable demo on June 3 – outsiders don't get to play until sometime thereafter.

    LOL it definitely has the old "Duke Nukem elements" that I remember. Can't wait to see how it plays! Is this the only other vaporware left people have been waiting for longer than HL2 episode 3? Here's to hoping that changes too within the next year.

    DLC really gets on my nerves. I miss the days where you would get a solid game and expansion packs afterwards. Not these micro transactions trying to nickle and dime the customer constantly.

    skazDLC really gets on my nerves. I miss the days where you would get a solid game and expansion packs afterwards. Not these micro transactions trying to nickle and dime the customer constantly.If you havent already, get used to it. This is the way of the future. EVRYTHING will be mircotransactions. You want to move your character left, that will be $.02 for every step. You want to shoot bad guys, thats another $.05 a for every bullet. Thank you to all the dumbass console players that are willing to shell out $60+ for crap games and $15 for a crappy map. You are dumb enough to buy the steaming piles that they sell you and beg for more. We are all worse off for it.

    Ehh, nostalgia seems to be carrying a long way. It looks dated, but I'm willing to give it an honest go!

  • Even if it does suck, it'll be the coolest drink coaster ever made.

    I don't know about you but I'm buying two copies.

    One, I'll play of course. (Or make into an awesome drink coaster. See above...)

    And the second? Its going up on my wall next to the Jackalope and autographed sasquach photo.

    Owning DNF is like owning a piece of history.
