Hail to the King! Aspyr Media Announces Duke Nukem Forever® Arriving on the Mac this Summer

June 6, 2011

AUSTIN, Texas - Aspyr Media, Inc. announced today that Duke Nukem Forever® will officially make way to the Macintosh in August. Published in partnership with 2K Games, Duke Nukem will bring his signature brand of ass-kicking, cigar-smoking, beer-chugging and babe-lovin’ action as he once again saves the Earth and our babes from hordes of invading aliens.

"We are thrilled to play a part in bringing this gaming experience to the Mac,” said Michael Rogers, President of Aspyr Media..

Apologizing to no one, Duke Nukem Forever is the high-octane video game equivalent of a Hollywood summer blockbuster. Starring the legendary lady killer and alien slayer, Duke Nukem Forever brings gamers back to a blastastic time when games were filled with head-popping, bone-rattling action, brazenly crude humor, impossibly statuesque women dying for affection, and catchy one-liners.

Put on your sunglasses and prepare to step into the boots of Duke Nukem, whose legend has reached epic proportions in the years since his last adventure. The alien hordes are back and only Duke can save the world, again. Pig cops, alien shrink rays and enormous alien bosses won’t stop our hero from accomplishing his one and only goal: to save the world, save the babes and to be a bad-ass while doing it. The King of All Shooters is back with over-the-top weapons, massive aliens and unprecedented levels of interactivity. This game puts pedal to the metal and tongue firmly in cheek. Shoot hoops, lift weights, read adult magazines, draw crude messages on whiteboards or ogle one of the many beautiful women that populate Duke’s life; that is if you can pull yourself away long enough from kicking ass and taking names.

Duke Nukem Forever will be available for sale on Steam and will support Steamworks features as well as Steam Play. For more information and to keep up with the latest news on Duke Nukem Forever for the Mac and to pre-order your copy today, please visit http://dukenukem.aspyr.com/.
