Usually, when a team of enterprising modders gets together to remake an old classic using a new game engine, lawyers intervene and the project meets an early demise. That won't be the fate of Duke Nukem: Next-Gen, which has received the blessing of not only Duke franchise owner Gearbox software, but also Duke Nukem: Forever publisher Take-Two.
Duke Nukem: Next-Gen is slated to include a three-episode single-player campaign in addition to a multiplayer component. The game is being built using Unreal Engine 3 technology, although you won't need to actually own any Unreal-powered titles to play. This new spin on the old Duke will be released completely free of charge—naturally, when it's done. A multiplayer beta is promised "sooner than you think," though.
