Friday, 11th February 2011 10:56 GMT By Johnny Cullen

The pack will feature the following:

  • 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 of 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

No price was confirmed, though.

Duke Nukem Forever releases on May 3 in the US and May 6 elsewhere for PS3, 360 and PC. Read our recent hands-on with the game here and our interview with Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford here.

    I would’ve liked a book about the development of this game, from start to finish. Must be so many good stories of anguish. :D

    Do want.

    Also @6: It would be HUGE like The Lord of the Rings complete with all appendixes.

    Anyone think this looks a bit photoshopped?

    I don’t see a reflection of the cards, and something around that area looks a little off. But maybe that’s just my poor sight.

  15. TheWulf

    Then again, this isn’t showing the cards, which other sites have.

    Post up the entire image, JC. Folks will see what I’m talking about then. >_>

    I was actually hoping for something much better in the limited edition.

    Guess I’ll just get the standard version.

    I don’t know.. if one of my buddies will buy it then I’ll play. I don’t like Gearbox, and it’s all kind of too little too late.

    games are too expensive.

    Would have rather had the Bust of a Stripper. Too many games coming out in Spring, to waste money on all these Special Editions anyway.

    This will be a great collection for the die hard fans of the game and the series, like myself.

    If this is only $100, I might just have to pick this up. Will be my first CE in a long, long, time. Fucking bad ass.
