    GT Interactive: Duke Nukem Scores Big With His Newest Game for the PlayStation Game Console: Planet of the Babes



    Only the King of Action Can Rescue a Planet of Beautiful Babes Fighting for Their Life Against a New and Powerful Alien Threat--No One Said Being Duke was Easy!



    NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 29, 2000-- Babes. Lots of them in desperate need of help. That's all the argument necessary to recruit gaming's undisputed King of Action into saving a planet as GT Interactive Software (Nasdaq:GTIS - news) unleashes Duke Nukem: Planet of the Babes for the PlayStation® game console. Developed by n-Space, Duke Nukem: Planet of the Babes is slated to hit stores in May, and features white-knuckling combat through interactive, high-resolution 3D environments. With scores of new weapons, enemies and advanced artificial intelligence, Duke is in for the fight of his heroic life.

    "Planet of the Babes shoots high and scores, a true milestone release in the Duke Nukem franchise,'' said Tony Kee, Vice President of Marketing for GT Interactive. "Planet of the Babes delivers mature, compelling game play that pushes the envelope with no-holds-barred combat, high-resolution graphics, a new and very innovative Duke survival system that replaces the typical health system found in all other shooters, and lest we forget, lots of babes.''

    In Earth's distant future, an alien race has launched a full-scale invasion, sinking the human population into anarchy and terror. The aliens then embark on their hideous primary objective: wiping out the male population so they can enslave women for use in their hybridization program. However, some women managed to escape, and united to form the Unified Babe Resistance (UBR).

    But the scanty UBR defenses are being annihilated by a powerful new alien weapon, and with all hope nearly lost, they turn to Earth's long distant history and legendary hero, Duke Nukem. Using a time portal device, the UBR track down Duke and make his choice very simple: Help them or there will be no chicks in the future. Without hesitation, Duke answers, "Let's Rock.''.

    Features include:

    • Innovative "Ego'' based health system for Duke Nukem, who will gain and lose Ego based on his actions in the game;
    • 24 fully detailed levels including 14 single player levels, 4 challenging training areas, and 6 multiplayer levels, all packed with explosive secret areas;
    • High-tech inventory including Infra-red goggles, Jetpack, Teleporter, GasMask and Duke's High-tech Shades Operating System!
    • Arsenal of weapons including Blaster, Flamer, RPG, and Grenade Launcher; plus Duke's new official weapon the golden Desert Eagle; each weapon also includes an auto-aiming option;
    • Over 20 Deadly new enemies including Mutant Gorillas, Chimpanzees and Orangutangs, Hunter Killer Babes, Hoglodytes, plus perennial favorites such as Pig Cops and Octabrains;
    • Mission Based game play featuring more than 25 real-time cinematic sequences to advance the plot. Also featuring un-lockable 'blooper' outtakes;
    • Intense first person perspective multi-player support for two-players, featuring three modes of split-screen viewing; Improved controls! Planet of the Babes offers jumping, climbing, swimming, jetpacking and zero gravity exploration.
    • Also, Duke will "auto-action'' things like opening doors, or simple actions like climbing short ledges, making game play more user-friendly.


    Duke Nukem: Planet of the Babes is slated for release in May at a suggested retail price of $49.95. Additional information can be found on the World Wide Web at http://www.3drealms.com/babes/.

    Ein Mann, eine Mission und massenweise Babes: Duke Nukem. Der King of Action tritt an, das "Land of the Babes" von seinen außerirdischen Unterdrückern zu befreien.

    Die letzten schwachen Linien der UBR, der "United Babe Restistance" drohen im Kampf gegen die widerlichen Alien-Lords zu brechen. Nun liegt es an Ihnen, einen ganzen Planeten voller hilfloser Babes von der Sklaverei zu erlösen. Dazu benötigen Sie nicht nur Charme, sondern wie bei Duke wohl bewährt, eine Menge verrückter und tödlicher Waffen. In einer stimmungsvollen dreidimensionalen Umgebung begeben Sie sich auf die Suche nach den Alien-Unterdrückern. Neben jeder Menge kerniger Duke-Sprüche im Originalton (mit deutschen Untertiteln) erwarten Sie haufenweise trickreiche Levels, in denen verzweifeilte Babes auf die Rettung und die Alienbrut nur darauf wartet, vom Duke geröstet zu werden.

    The Game Story

    In the future, an alien race launches a large-scale invasion of Earth, quickly and easily wiping out all military opposition. With the collapse of the government, the human population is swept into anarchy and terror. The alien host then proceeds to systematically hunt down and destroy billions, wiping the human male population from the Earth and enslaving the few women who remain for their hybridization program. During their vicious hunt, the aliens unleash every kind of devastation they can cause: tidal waves, global warming, radiation, earthquakes, volcanoes, El Nino, you name it. Continents shift, the polar caps melt, and cities are reduced to rubble. Even so, life endures and adapts. Mother nature, hopped up on alien energies left behind by the war, reclaims the ruins of man's former empire. The Earth is overrun with mutant creatures of astounding variety and terrible ferocity.

    With humankind all but eliminated, the aliens retreat to their newly constructed spaceport known as the Den of Sin (DOS). The DOS rapidly becomes a pleasure palace filled with slave women and 'adult' entertainment. The station also becomes the central trading hub for one of the most hotly traded commodities in the universe, the human babe. To maintain control over the withered Earth, the aliens create armies of simian hybrids to do their dirty work. The apes are in charge of everything from slave augmentation centers to ravaging the Earth's few remaining resources.

    Some of the enslaved women manage to escape the alien oppressors and go into hiding among the ruins. As more escape, they join together for protection. They are forced to teach themselves how to survive in this new, harsh world, which means adopting a military like organization. As their forces grow stronger, they begin to call themselves the Unified Babe Resistance (UBR). Soon, the UBR are strong enough to resist the alien garrisons though limited acts of terrorism, and reopen the Earth Defense Force Base. The UBR are able to get the base's old time machine up and running. The babes use the machine to locate the only hero to ever successfully fight off an alien invasion, Duke Nukem. Getting word of the UBR's new found ability to go back in time, the aliens create a strike force headed by an ape named Silverback. His mission: wipe out the UBR.

    Meanwhile, in the near future: Sitting at a table at the Bootylicious, enjoying a bit of R&R, Duke is rudely interrupted...

    Fan of the game? Don't forget about the Duke Nukem: Land of the Babes Official Strategy Guide - now available. You can order your copy today at Amazon.com. It contains hints, secrets, and much much more, so make sure and pick up your copy today!

    However, if the guide isn't enough, you can also check out our online walkthrough for the game. Be warned, though. The walkthrough has major spoilers - and most likely will ruin most of the fun you will have with the game.
