Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction is a top-down, action RPG for PC and PS4 from Interceptor Entertainment and 3D Realms, according to a teaser site at alloutofgum.com (warning: auto-playing, manly music) and a Facebook page. The Facebook page briefly contained scripts of alien text that described the death of a planet and the hard-won survival of its population, the Kyrr, as translated by fans.

"Duke Nukem kicks ass across planets in an Unreal Engine-powered galactic adventure to save the president from an apocalyptic alien threat," the translation reads. "All new enemies. A never-before-seen arsenal of devastating weaponry and series-first mechanics, including experience points and tech trees, will let Duke rip 'em a new one in a way he never has before."

Interceptor Entertainment is the studio behind Rise of the Triad and iOS ports of Duke Nukem games, and in December we noticed it was working on a PC and PS4 game dubbed "Project Ascender." 3D Realms handled 2011's Duke Nukem Forever with Gearbox Software, a relationship that ended with a canceled lawsuit and ... Duke Nukem Forever.

The timer on Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction's teaser site hits zero on February 25.
