Our cool-cat friends over at Gamepron
did some sleuthy investigative work this morning, and managed to discover that 2K Games' forthcoming Duke Nukem Forever
has passed classification here in Australia, and emerged, unchanged, with an MA15+ rating.
In this latest action-adventure 1st person shooter game from the Duke Nukem series, the player assumes the role of the iconic, hyperbolic action hero, who must navigate through over 24 levels of futuristic scenarios, killing opponents with a vast array of weapons. The primary objective is to overcome an alien race that has launched an invasion on Earth and commenced a hybridisation program using kidnapped Earth women.
Interestingly, 2K Games had submitted the game as titled "000A" to try and thwart such information being made available to the likes of us gaming news entities, but this effort proved no match for Gamepron. Good work guys.
The verdict, however, is still out on just how the game will fare after 12-years in development, despite being picked up and pushed out the door by the capable Gearbox Games. Though either way, the sheer fact it's actually coming is almost worth a high-five on its own.
Duke is due to arrive on PC, PS3 and the Xbox 360 May 6th.
