Second Duke Nukem Forever 'Behind-the-Scenes' video released

The second "behind-the-scenes" trailer for Duke Nukem Forever has launched, including interviews from a handful of devs involved with the making of Duke Nukem 3D.


After a long wait, the second "behind-the-scenes" trailer for Duke Nukem Forever has been released. I suppose waiting is something of a theme in the Duke Nukem universe.

While the first title outlined Duke's origins, the second video delves deep into the creation of the character's finest hour: Duke Nukem 3D.

Listen to a whole slew of game developers reminisce about their time at 3D Relams and how--even during development of the 1996 title--original plans changed to ensure something special was created. As an added bonus, the video features a look at voice-actor John St. John tackling the role of Duke in a studio.

The next episode appears to finally get to Duke Nukem Forever, which--after another long wait--arrives for the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 on June 14 in North America. A demo for "First Access Club" users will launch on June 3.

      I would really love a book from the beginning up till now really similar to Masters of Doom. It was just a fun read.

      I still wish that there was another Shadow Warrior in the works. I liked it better than Duke 3D.

        for its time, I remember it introduced drivable vehicles and way more over-the-top weapons. All of the one-liners are hilarious (especially being asian myself) and SW just fucking rocked back in '97.

      This is kind of off topic but I preordered Duke Nukem forever about a month ago and haven't received my "first access club" information (was preordered through Gamestop). Has anyone been able to login to the access club yet? Or did my code go to spam lol
