Duke Nukem 3D Megatron Edition Coming To Linux


Classic FPS (First Person Shooter) Duke Nukem is set to come to Linux via Steam in the very near future. Anyone who is a fan of FPS games, like myself will be familiar with the awesome Duke Nukem series of games.

In particular, the version that is being released is Duke Nukem 3D Megatron Edition. Which includes the basic Duke Nukem 3D game and three expansion packs – Duke Caribbean: Life’s a Beach, Duke: Nuclear Winter, and Duke It Out in D.C. The game itself has been refined with improved OpenGL based visuals, SteamPlay and SteamCloud support.

Duke Nukem 3D Megatron Edition has already been released on Steam for Windows and Mac at a cost of just £6.99 (around $10). In a press release on Joystiq Duke Nukem 3D Megatron Edition developers went on to comment about the future development and release of a Linux version. Here’s what they had to say:

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.

This is just another step forward in bringing fantastic gaming titles over to Linux. The early adoption of gaming in Linux has been booming to say the least. As this has usually been the main reason why most people dual boot; Linux to ‘get stuff done’, and Windows for gaming. This line is now well and truly blurred, and soon enough the line will be completely smashed wide open.

Are you a Duke Nukem fan? Why not tell us your thoughts about the plans to port it to Linux.
