We have dug up some additional details regarding the upcoming Duke Nukem 3D: Hail to the King Collection from Voidpoint that will be landing onto Google Play sometime in Q1 2015. As we mentioned in our original article, Voidpoint hasn’t come up with a specific price point yet for the collection but we do now have confirmation that there will not, at all, be any IAPs. We did mention that the entire collection would be included in the launch but considering the amount of games in it, we wanted to make sure it would be available for one price.
For those of you curious about Google Play integration, Duke Nukem 3D: Hail to the King Collection will actually not have that when it launches. However, Google Play integration will be added post-launch. We also asked about achievements because some console versions actually come with those. We actually got a bit bigger of an answer regarding this:
Achievements… Excellent question. Just a brief history on this version of Duke3D – this is as pure and as close to the original experience and you can achieve – many console versions with achievements have been ports or iterations – this is more in line with a fresh build. So if something fun or interesting occurs to us to do with achievements, then we’ll add them in. But there are no plans to copy over achievements from the console versions.
So there you have it. Some answers to (hopefully) some questions you may have had. We are actually going to try and sit down and have a much bigger interview with Voidpoint in the very near future so stay tuned for that!
