YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 29, 2000-- Babes. Lots of them in

gaming's undisputed King of Action into saving a planet as GT
Interactive Software (Nasdaq:GTIS - news) unleashes Duke Nukem: Planet

3D environments. With scores of new weapons, enemies and advanced
artificial intelligence, Duke is in for the fight of his heroic life.
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.''
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).
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.''.
