The lights are on
Duke Nukem Forever has been in development for a little while. To give you a sense of just how much time has passed since it was first announced, Gran Turismo--a series known for its punctuality--saw releases 1-5 hit shelves in the intervening years. Skepticism turned to actual anticipation last September, when Gearbox unveiled Duke Nukem Forever in playable form at PAX. OK, so the game was really, really, real. A lingering question remained, however: When would we be able to finally take this thing home and play it?
As it turns out, we now know when that's happening.
"Somehow the guys at Game Informer magazine discovered Duke Nukem Forever's launch date before I did," joked Randy Pitchford, president of Gearbox Software and executive producer of Duke Nukem Forever. "But I cannot imagine any better video game news source team than Game Informer to reveal the moment of truth for the most inconceivable, incorrigible and inspiring turn around story in the history of the video game industry – the coming of Duke Nukem Forever on May 3, 2011."
“The moment fans all over the world have been waiting for is almost here,” says Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “May 3, 2011 marks Duke’s return as he unleashes his brash and brutally honest wit on the world. His return is going to be epic and one that will make video gaming history!”
May 3 is the North American release date. May 6 is worldwide. Check it out below.

Very cool trailer. Looks like it will strike some of the same humor that Bulletstorm embraces. Which is definitly not a bad thing. Can't wait to see Duke Nukem come out.
Hot diggity! I can't wait to get me some Duke! Wait... that came out wrong...
Also, why is every freaking game trailer using "Invaders must die" as the background music? It's an awesome song and all, but still...
I feel like, no matter how this game turns out in the end, I have to buy it if not for the fact to actually own it. There's obviously a level of hype that it probably won't live up to, but it's actually coming out. This year.
Thats awesome that you guys are breaking the story
LMAO! *** epic!
I have to say after all these years it looks good and I might be convinced to pick it up if I see more on it. lotta naked women guess thats a plus already!
Oh hell yeah!
Lmao that trailer was perfection. Funny, action-packed, and they even pick fun at how long it took to f***ing get to where they are now.
Coochy Coochy?! LMFAO!
And nice self deprication at the end there.
COME GET SOME!
Good lord, this is happening.
love the ending!!
