Duke Forever goes gold, hell freezes over

— 9:35 AM on May 24, 2011

Well, there's a headline I never expected to write. It's true, though: Duke Nukem Forever has finally gone gold. Gearbox Software posted the announcement this morning, which means that, after some 13 years in development, Duke Forever is complete and ready for mass distribution.

Gearbox reiterates that DNF is on track to hit its June 14 retail release date (June 10 if you live outside of North America) on the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. Folks who pre-ordered the game—or purchased Gearbox's Borderlands Game of the Year Edition—will receive "exclusive access to the pre-release demo on June 3." So, barring some apocalyptic event, some of us should be playing DNF in a week and a half... which is pretty surreal, no matter how you slice it.

Now, where's Half-Life 2: Episode Three?
