The long-awaited, highly-anticipated Duke Nukem 3D sequel from 3D Realms, Gearbox Software and 2K Games arrives on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC in North America tomorrow, June 14. But just one day prior to its release, Nvidia has announced that the PC version will feature support for the company's 3D Vision technology.
"Gearbox is integrating full support for Nvidia 3D Vision technology, giving gamers an up-close and personal look into Duke's world," the company said in a press release. "And, with Nvidia Surround technology, gamers can experience Duke's alien battles, beer drinking and world-saving in 3D across three full HD 1080p displays, or in 2D across three 2560 x 1600 displays, for a completely stunning and immersive gaming experience."
Nvidia and EVGA have also teamed up to offer the $244.99 "Fully Loaded Package," a special edition Duke Nukem Forever bundle including the PC game, a limited edition GeForce GTX 560 graphics card by EVGA, a limited edition Duke Nukem Forever strategy guide art book and mouse pad, and a custom Duke Nukem "Radioactive" belt buckle.
In related news, Duke Nukem Forever launched across the globe on June 10 (sans North America, of course) and immediately received mixed reviews. However, various reports indicate that it's currently the best-selling game in the UK despite the numerous poor reviews, ranking #1 on the charts. 56-percent of Duke Nukem Forever sales were reportedly on the Xbox 360, 30-percent on the PlayStation 3, and 14-percent on Windows PC.
But based on the Metacritic scores thus far, the PC version has actually scored the highest of the three, ranking the game at 76 out of 100 (4 reviews). Trailing behind is the PlayStation 3 version at 62-percent (5 reviews) followed by the Xbox 360 version at 50-percent (12 reviews). These numbers will likely jump up once the game hits North America.
