first_imgIf you’re having a difficult enough time believing that Duke Nukem Forever is actually going to come out, much less be released later this year, the news that Gearbox and 2K Games have unveiled a very special collector’s edition of the game will be even more difficult to swallow. The Duke Nukem Forever “Balls of Steel” Edition was announced first over at the First Access Club this morning and currently only members of the club have pre-order rights. Pre-orders for the general public haven’t been opened just yet. The Balls of Steel edition will set you back $99.99 retail price, about $50 more than the regular game, but for your added cash you’ll pick up a ton of Duke Nukem related loot. The package includes a certificate of authenticity, a Duke Nukem comic book, stickers and paper craft, Duke Nukem poker chips, a deck of cards, a set of dice with the radioactive emblem on them, Duke Nukem postcards, a 100-page hardcover book chronicling the story of the game over the past decade or so and concept art, a copy of the game, and what must be the biggest trophy: a bust of Duke Nukem himself, in all his glory. When the collector’s edition is available for the public to pre-order, it will be a GameStop and Amazon exclusive, so you’ll have to act quickly before they sell out. [via Forbes]last_img read more
