Xbox Store Today: Duke Nukem 3D, WWE 2K17, Gears of War 4, more

Re-releases and remasters have been extremely popular over the last few years, but I have to admit, I never imagined Duke Nukem 3D would receive a new deluxe package from Gearbox Software. Yet, here we are, and Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour is now available to download for the Xbox One. In addition to the groundbreaking first person shooter from 1996, 20th Anniversary World Tour includes a new Episode from the original designers, new music from the game’s original composer, and new “Duke Talk” from the original voice of Duke Nukem.

Xbox One owners looking for more new titles on the Xbox Games Store might also be interested in Gears of War 4, which is now available to download without all the “Ultimate Edition” extras. The standard version of the game will still include a brand new campaign starring JD Fenix and his friends, the Horde 3.0 cooperative multiplayer mode, and a free copy of the game for Windows 10 PCs.

If you’d rather wrestle with some human-sized behemoths, WWE 2K17 is now available to download for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 this week. The latest wrestling sim from 2K Games will feature “the most authentic WWE gameplay ever” and “the biggest roster of WWE and NXT Superstars and Legends to date.”

We started with an unlikely re-release, and we end with a pair of “Game of the Year” style collections. Square Enix will bundle together Rise of the Tomb Raider, all of its DLC, and some brand new content in a special 20 Year Celebration Edition. And Konami will relaunch Hideo Kojima’s final entry in the Metal Gear Solid saga as Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience, which will include Ground Zeroes, The Phantom Pain, and all the previously-released DLC in a new compilation.

More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break.
