Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition is one of the newest game titles being ported to Linux that's worth mentioning and is being distributed via Steam.

Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition was released to gamers yesterday and consists of the classic Duke Nukem 3D game plus three of its expansion packs. The included expansion packs for the very popular game from 1996 includes uke Caribbean: Life's a Beach, Duke: Nuclear Winter, and Duke It Out in D.C.

There are some enhancements to the visuals in this re-release of Duke Nukem 3D plus support for SteamPlay and other enhancements for building around Steam's digital distribution system.

While not available with launch-day support, a Linux port of Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition is being worked on for release at a later time. This Duke Nukem game collection is being offered for $10 USD at SteamPowered.com.
