The rumors about a relaunch of the old Duke Nukem 3D game were true, Gearbox Software just announced they'll be releasing Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour on October 11. This title promises a brand-new 8-level fifth episode, created by the original episode designers, as well as a bunch of other bonus content. Unfortunately, it seems the expansion packs aren't part of the deal due to legal rights issues, so it doesn't seem like such a good deal versus the old Megaton Edition (which is no longer available).
Gearbox polished up the graphics somewhat but don't get your hopes up too high, there are much better fan-made versions out there.
