New Duke Nukem Forever teaser trailer goes up

As promised, 3D Realms has released its first Duke Nukem Forever teaser trailer in six years. The trailer is only a minute long, and it doesn’t show much in the way of gameplay, but its release has already overwhelmed the servers of both Shacknews and 3D Realms’ own website. Luckily, the trailer has been mirrored on YouTube, GamersHell, Fileplanet, and GameVideos.com, among others.

This new teaser trailer shows the game’s protagonist lifting weights in some sort of cave with brief cuts of monsters and combat, all suggesting a relatively modern 3D engine with graphics akin to those seen in titles like Gears of War. There’s pretty much no in-game action like in the 2001 trailer, though. Regarding the game’s release schedule, Shacknews says it received the following reply when it asked 3D Realms CEO George Broussard for clarification: “The release is still ‘when it’s done,’ but you can expect more frequent media releases and we’re not changing engines again and we have considerable work behind us.”

    this makes sure they win the vapourware 1st-place this year too.
    I don’t understand why I didn’t read that word in this article: vaporware, vapourware

    I hope it is indeed Doom 3’s engine. It has the right look for a Duke Nukem game. And considering that 3D Realms used it for Prey, it really should be it.

    Is it just me or does it look like it uses the Doom3 Engine? I know a lot of you mentioned Unreal tech 3 but 3DRealms used Doom3 for Prey, maybe they are extending their license fees for the Duke? The monsters had that chunky Doom3 look, as well as the specular highlights and shadows look like id’s engine. Obviously the technology has been pushed further for sharper textures and higher polygon counts but it just “feels” more D3 than UT3.

    Found a few screenshots so that you guys can compare for yourselves:

      I don’t know, they have a different artistic feeling to them. Prey has less detail and almost no physics or at least in those images.

      But it does make sense they would use D3. Yet they have been using the Unreal engine for the past 10 years for the game (if not, most), haha.

    It’s kinda funny how here are more posts in the thread about a new trailer from yesterday, than there are today about the trailer itself. That might say somethingg{…}g

    You would figure some one who smokes as much as Duke and being around nuclear weapons and monsters would have died from something already.

    this trailer could have used a stripper or two

    :o)

    At this point I’d be happy if it was just not 2.5D. Man, it’s been a while since that transition happened eh… 😛

    • Forge

    I kind of wish they had kicked out the HL1-based DNF as an unsupported mod or something, though. There was a lot of stuff in there that I’d imagine got chucked after an engine switch or three.

    That really sums up PR masturbation, doesn’t it? Shows nothing of real note, stirs up the fanboys, and makes it look like the product is imminent though it most likely is not.

    Big whoop. STILL DUKE NUKEM FORNEVER!

    Duke…..rules….all

    The trailer did look nice, but I noticed there were many cuts of very small, and high res segments.

    Very well done from a marketing perceptive.

    Judging the enthusiastic responses, very effective also. Enough so, to keep hope alive.

    It’s funny listening to all the leg humpers on shacknews. They make it sound like the game came out or something.

    I remember playing the old Duke Nukem all night with friends via a LAN. Definitely going to get this game when it comes out.

      I hope you’ll b around to see it

    I can’t wait for the game demo come out with my Nehalem processor with my Geforce 10 2 GB Octo-SLI.

    Duke looked kinda old…
    Reminded me of that guy who did too many Die Hard movies… 🙂

    LMAO, this is the longest running joke in the history of video games. Can’t wait for trailer 3 in 2015.

    I hope there is a minigame when it comes out. The mingame consists of the same game you are playing, however it uses the previous engine they developed on. Then you get this sort of “Hall of Mirrors” effect going, and universe implodesg{<.<}g

          Don’t give 3DR any good ideas. My great-grandchildren’s generation doesn’t need a joke comparable to DNF.

      • Shinare

      Actually a Duke Nukem side scroller mini-game would be nice.

    Less time in 3DSMax and more time in UE3, George.

    • Mourmain
    • 13 years ago

    Oh, I hope they never release it, but keep updating the trailers Forever*. At this point, if it actually comes out, it would have to be revolutionary to make up for spoiling the great DNF meme.

    /[<* they probably will, just to bring 3D Realms back in the spotlight whenever it lags a bit.<]/

    • bdwilcox

    With such a long wait, I hope this doesn’t turn out to be Duketana. 😛

    • Krogoth
    • 13 years ago

    Ok, that was very underwhelming.

      • provoko
      • 13 years ago

      I vote excited. Knowing they’ve enhanced the unreal engine, not sure if it’s 3, but definitely better than 2. And that 3drealms actually took the time to show the public what they have indicating they are close to compilation. Finally.

        • mattsteg

        Just like when they showed gameplay footage years and years ago?

    Duke should know that smoking will shorten his already somewhat reduced lifeg{<...<}g

      • ludi
      • 13 years ago

      He’s been smoking like that for the past ten years and his face hasn’t got even one wrinkle. He’ll probably be one of the exceptional cases.

    • bdwilcox
    • 13 years ago

    They might have settled on the engine, but I bet it’s been redesigned as a MMORPG.

      Maybe they just got tired of seeing ole Duke on the Vaporware list every year.

        who got tired? you mean there were actually people working on it?

    Is it April 1st already?

      If they wait until April 1, they will lose the, “element of surprise”

      April fools – it’s not just for April anymore.
