Duke Theft Auto is based upon the classic DMA/Rockstar game, "Grand Theft Auto" Run, Shoot, Kill, Car Jack your way through many cities on your way of becoming the number one criminal! Instead of being limited to a top down view as you were in the classic game you will now be able to run and drive through the cities in a first person perspective as well as a third person.

News concerning the release of the Duke Theft Auto Beta, Plus some pictures and a small video.

Posted by on

A public Beta of Duke Theft Auto was never on the cards but due to lifestyle changes on my half.
(Training for Police of all things)
I have decided to release an early Beta instead of making you guys wait any longer for the final finished version. (hears the gasps of excitement) The beta will be self installing version (zip/rar version will come later) and unlike the Alpha version "WILL NOT" require you to own a copy of Duke Nukem to play it. There are still a few things I would like to polish up on first before I release the Beta

* Adding the final details to the first/beta level. (missions ect)
* Tweaking the players driving code. (still won't be perfect)
* Fixing a couple of the weapons.

There will be some things that will annoy a lot of you that cant be fixed by the time of the Beta release such as:

* Music/radio restarts at the beginning if you exit and re-enter the same car.
* Cars don't spawn any drivers if you steal their car.
* Police cars don't care about your wanted level and pay no attention to you.
(Police officers and Helicopter do though)
* Cars don't respawn as of yet.
* Car traffic sometimes don't stick to their waypoints and might get stuck.
And probably the worst of the lot,
* Cars have no model collision detection.

Plus some other various things that I am forgetting right now at this time of posting.
Expect a Beta release within the next few weeks.

Now for a video and some pictures, enjoy. :)

This concept seems rather fun! But it sure needs an extreme bugfixing before release :P

i like this nostalgic mod style and actually must say thanks for posting the option for paypal donation. in my mind i feel the modders spend lots of TIME doing these things for all of us and we just sit on our ***** enjoying them. remember, "time = money".

I'm definitely looking forward to this.

As for the donation issue, you cant help if people want to donate to you. Youre doing this as a spare time project for fun and no one is required to pay you for it.

Well ill be keeping my eye on this still, i hope everything goes well. By the way, will Vice City and San Andreas be included in the beta as well? or will it just be Libery City?
