2K Games and Gearbox have today announced a special collector's edition for the upcoming Duke Nukem Forever
: the Balls of Steel edition.
The Balls of Steel edition has exclusive cover art for the game, as well as the following items:
• Collectible bust of the greatest alien ass-kicker of all-time
• Numbered, limited-edition certificate of authenticity
• 100-page hardcover book: The History, Legacy & Legend: Duke Nukem Forever Art from the Vault
• Duke Nukem Forever postcard series
• Duke Nukem Forever radioactive emblem sticker
• Duke Nukem Forever collectable comic book
• Duke Nukem Forever foldable paper craft
• Duke Nukem Forever poker chips
• Duke Nukem Forever mini-card deck
• Duke Nukem Forever radioactive emblem dice
Not quite the sort of bust you'd associate with Duke... Apparently, the developer also wanted to include bubblegum in this collection, but they're all out of gum.
As previously announced
, DNF is scheduled for release on May 3rd in North America and May 6th in Europe. The Balls of Steel Edition will be available in North America exclusively through Gamestop
for $99.99. No exclusive European retailers or price has been announced at this time.
