Devolver has the update included in ‘Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition‘. The expanded edition was published in March 2013 on Steam and includes: ‘Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition’, ‘Duke Caribbean: Life’s A Beach’, ‘Duke it out in D.C.’ and ‘Nuclear Winter’. The Megaton Edition is part of the Midweek Madness sale on Steam, so the game is temporarily on sale for few bucks.

Devolver Digital took over the development of Duke Nukem 3D on 3D Realms in 2009, after the entire staff was fired. 3D Realms did not have enough resources left developing sequel Duke Nukem Forever, which was in production for twelve years! The development of DNF was taken over by Gearbox Software.

Halfway through 2011 Devolver embroidered the Steam version of Duke Nukem 3D, on the work that some modders in recent years have done.  So the game is now running under OpenGL and can handle TCP/IP, while original version of the game was playing multiplayer only via the ipx protocol.

Alternative you can use EDuke32 to run the game on Linux and to improve the visuals of this classic shooter, download the high-res texture pack.
