Duke Nukem Forever, The Darkness get backward compatibility support on Xbox One

The Darkness, Duke Nukem Forever, and XCOM Declassified are the latest Xbox 360 titles to gain Xbox One backward-compatibility support, which will be available from today.

Duke Nukem Forever is, of course, the most notorious entry on that list, given its colourful development history. 3D Realms initially announced the game back in 1997, as the follow-up to its well-received first-person shooter, Duke Nukem 3D. Soon after, though, Forever entered development purgatory, going through numerous iterations across numerous engines, and becoming a thing of legend as the years ticked by.

Indeed, most people had given up on ever seeing the game when, in 2010, it was revealed that Borderlands developer Gearbox was working to complete Duke Nukem Forever. It was finally released a year later, some 15 years after its initial reveal, to less-than-favourable reviews.
