Duke Nukem 3D gets the Unreal treatment

Epic Games' Unreal Development Kit (a free download) is being used to build a remake of 3D Realms’ 1996 title, Duke Nukem 3D, a landmark game of its time. Initiated by hobbyist Frederick Schreiber who now has the licence to use Duke’s character and foes in the update, the game, given the working title Duke Nukem Next Gen, is being built with a similar standard of tech as the upcoming, and of course fully commercial, Duke Nukem Forever project.

Schreiber has stated that he is looking for qualified individuals for the project as the intention is to complete this is a team project and make it available for free. Check out the video above for an example of the visual update possible!
