Duke Nukem must save the world as we know it once more, this time in 3D. After putting an end to an alien threat in Duke Nukem II, Duke returns to Earth only to find another extraterrestrial invasion underway.

Armed with his wits and an extensive arsenal of weaponry, Duke will travel through various locations both on Earth and in its orbit, and even on the Moon in order to push the alien invaders back.
