We first told you about it here, but this is just a reminder that this Wednesday Duke Nukem 3D will be returning to us via Xbox Live Arcade. Get ready to strap on some boots and oil your shotguns!
Here are some new screenshots and details-
First off, there will be two 8-player multiplayer modes, a co-op mode (!) that’ll let you earn single player achievements and complete the whole game. The classic “DukeMatch” will also return in one-on-one and free for all varieties. DukeMatches will support the Xbox Live Vision camera in some way.
Also included is an “User Clips” feature that works somewhat like Halo 3, allowing you to save and share your favorite replays. You can even upload them to leaderboards, but that’s more for those speed freaks to show off their runs.
Not only can you save the replays but when you die you can jump back to any point in the level, Prince of Persia/Braid style! The ol’ save and load game will still work but this allows you to rewind all the way back to the beginning of the level.
Some other Xbox features have been included as well, like controller vibration, bilinear filtering (that smooths down the more pixelated textures, but this option can be turned off for the old-school gamers), and motion blur. Besides the achievements you can unlock concept art that contains info about the making of the game.
So as you can see, a lot of love went into this. Best of all, it’s only 10 bucks! I can’t wait to shrink you bastards and stomp you to pieces come Wednesday.
