Longtime publisher 3D Realms has officially announced the return of their “Realms Deep” digital event and showcase. The live show will stream on the publisher’s official Twitch channel on September 16th at noon Pacific time. According to the event official websitefans can expect to see “world premieres, special guests, interviews and more”.
Here’s the tweet from 3D Realms’ feed, which adds that in addition to a live Twitch stream, there will also be a LAN event in Denmark between September 16 and 18, 2022:
3D Realms has been around since the late 80s and is probably best known for their work with Duke Nukem series contributing to various sequels.
While Duke Nukem has undoubtedly fallen by the wayside, it was recently revealed that the series would be getting a film adaptation. Not unlike the last one BioShock announcement, Hollywood treatments are renewing interest in classic games, so it will be interesting to see if 3D Realms capitalizes on that and has something to say about Duke Nukem again.
However, 3D Realms is also known for championing unknown projects, so the promotional slogan “the best new games you’ve never heard of” in today’s tweet can be taken literally. In that case, it would be difficult to predict 2022’s titles. But the publisher released a short new supercut from 2021 to give fans a better idea of what to expect:
The event will be hosted by 3D Realms “and Friends”, so given any of their ongoing partnerships, Realm’s Deep will open up a number of other titles. They have some pretty big partners including Nvidia, Rogue Games and even Team17 who have consistently impressed with recent announcements such as Ship of Fools release date trailer.
