Duke Nukem: Land of the Babes is a third-person shooter released in 2000 for the Sony PlayStation. The game was originally known as Duke Nukem: Planet of the Babes, but the name was changed shortly before the game's release. Land of the Babes is a direct sequel to Duke Nukem: Time to Kill, which features similar graphics and nearly identical gameplay.
The game begins in a dystopian future, when all the men have been exterminated and only women are left to fight an invading army of aliens and their bio-engineered animal mutants. Most of the women have been captured and enslaved by the aliens, but a group of female soldiers manages to escape. They form the United Babe Resistance to reclaim Earth from the alien invaders. Using a time machine, they contact Duke Nukem, who successfully fought alien invaders in the past.
Duke is partying in a Los Angeles strip club, when he is suddenly interrupted by time-travelling Pig Cops and a female soldier pursuing them. Following a brief shootout and the death of the female soldier, Duke steps into an opened time portal, traveling into the future. When he arrives, he is greeted by Jane, a fighter in the United Babe Resistance. Jane briefs Duke on the situation and recruits him to the Resistance.
The game ends with a cutscene insinuating that Duke Nukem is having sex with large numbers of women as part of "Operation Repopulation."

Gene Rozenberg wrote the music of Duke Nukem: Land of the Babes.
Duke Nukem: Land of the Babes was originally titled Duke Nukem: Planet of the Babes, and some initial advertising bore that name. However, the 2001 movie version of Planet of the Apes was under production around the same time, and the producers of the movie felt that the game's title constituted copyright infringement. Their lawyers sent a letter to GT Interactive and 3D Realms, who decided to change the game's title in order to avoid a lawsuit.
