If you've seen the various Duke Nukem Forever trailers and video clips, you've probably figured out that this is hardly a kid's game. The official reveal trailer alone featured enough adult language and sexual references to give anti-video-gaming advocates ammunition for the next decade or so.
As Eurogamer reports, the folks at Gearbox have added to the controversy by revealing that Duke Forever's multiplayer modes will spice things up with a little, uh, sanity smack. See for yourself:
Apparently in Capture the Babe – DNF's Capture the Flag mode – when you grab the other team's babe, she sometimes "freaks out". The solution? Give her a gentle smack.
Speaking about Duke Forever's multiplayer last month, Gearbox chief Randy Pitchford reportedly told Eurogamer, "You can get some things across in screenshots but not really. . . So we're kinda struggling with how we expose it so people understand what's there. The proof is in the pudding so to speak, so I don't want to talk about it too much." Perhaps, then, the tastelessness might make sense within context.
Or perhaps Gearbox is just going all-out with good old-fashioned shock humor. We'll see on May 3.
