Posted on Tuesday, May 12 2009 @ 19:27:50 CEST by


Lots of information and screenshots of Duke Nukem Forever were leaked yesterday. You can find dozens of screenshots at NoFrag, and if that's not enough the site also got its hands on charts that outline the plot of Duke Nukem Forever.

Level Summary
Description
Responding to orders Duke heads to Hoover Dam in an EDF Drop Ship to investigate a wormhole in the sky which is believed to be a portal from the Alien world.
