Want to know about the multiplayer in Duke Nukem Forever? Official Xbox Magazine has the scoop in its April 2011 issue with the first hands-on details.

The issue is on its way to subscribers now and should hit newsstands soon, so keep an eye out!


Duke Nukem Forever is legendary in its development cycle. Over the years, the game has been in the hands of several publishers and many developers have come through the doors at 3D Realms that may have contributed in some way to the game.

As the studio responsible for Duke Nukem Forever, it is our desire to recognize and acknowledge the people who have in some way been a part of the legacy and evolution of the game before it’s released on May 3 (North America) / May 6 (International), so we’ve launched the "Did You Contribute to Duke Nukem Forever" webpage to help find those people.

If you or someone you know has been involved with Duke Nukem Forever at some point and would like to be considered for having an acknowledgment in the game, please let us know at
