He wears sunglasses, kicks asses, and lacks gum, and now the original King is living it up on Steam. Publisher Devolver Digital brings Duke Nukem 3D to the Steam store today in what it's calling the Megaton Edition, which collates the 1996 shooter with three expansion packs for $9.99 - in case you missed DN3D being festively free on GOG last year.
The three bundled-in expansions are Duke Caribbean: Life's a Beach, Duke: Nuclear Winter, and Duke It Out in DC. DN3D supports both PC and Mac, and comes with "polished OpenGL visuals" and its own set of Steam achievements. Meanwhile, developer General Arcade plans to bring further features to it down the line including online multiplayer via Steamworks, Linux support, and more expansion packs.
March 20th 2013, Austin, TX – The warlocks of Devolver Digital have partnered with legendary studio 3D Realms and Singapore-based indie developer General Arcade to launch Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition on Steam. The explosive collection includes the seminal first-person shooter Duke Nukem 3D and three wildly themed expansion packs – Duke Caribbean: Life's a Beach, Duke: Nuclear Winter, and Duke It Out in D.C. – each with polished OpenGL visuals, SteamPlay support for PC and Mac, Steam achievements, and Steam Cloud support.
Duke Nukem 3D originally splashed onto the scene in 1996 with groundbreaking gameplay that blended fast-paced action, unparalleled interactivity, and some of the most memorable quips in gaming history. Duke is a one-man wrecking crew wielding everything from shrink rays to pipe bombs as he brings down an alien invasion from the streets of Los Angeles to a lunar space station.
"There is a whole generation of fans that may have heard of Duke Nukem 3D but never actually played it so it's exciting to add a bit of polish to the game and the expansions for the first release on Steam," said Scott Miller, founding partner at 3D Realms. "General Arcade has worked close with our team and hardcore fans across the world to make sure the Megaton Edition lives up to the Duke Nukem legacy."
Developer General Arcade and publisher Devolver Digital will continue to update Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition with new features including Steamworks-enabled online multiplayer, Linux support, and additional expansion packs in the future.
Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition is available now on PC and Mac via Steam for $9.99/€9.99/£6.99.
