Duke Nukem Forever Isn’t Dead, Is Getting New DLC

Despite, uh, underwhelming sales numbers for Duke Nukem Forever, Gearbox isn’t letting it die a quick death; they’ve just announced new DLC, the Hail to the Icons Parody Pack. The pack comes with three new game modes and four new maps.

The game modes are: Hot Potato, in which the babe is, presumably, hot; Freeze tag, in which teammates work together to freeze and destroy their enemies; and Hail to the King, ¬†which players “play free-for-all Duke style,” whatever that means.

As I said, there are four new new maps, of which Sandbox, which is set in an actual sandbox, and Inferno, which is built on 16-bit graphics, sound the most interesting. The other two maps are called Call of Duke (get it?) and 2Forts1Bridge.

The DLC will be free for First Acces Club members. Otherwise they don’t say what the price will be. They also don’t say when it will be released, but if you go to the 2K Blog post discussing it you can find out how you can try it out next week.

Wasn’t this game already a parody of Call of Duty? It’s certainly Duke Nukem in name only.

And Bob, please shut it. If you are impressed by only flash and not substance then you are exactly the kind of person who would embrace this soulless rip-off. Obvious inuendo, beer, roids and babes (while important) do NOT a Duke Nukem game make.

Also, the game has only sold about 400k of the 3 million units that it was expected to sell. Gamers who pre-bought the game and then played the demo cancelled their pre-orders in droves. Calling the sales so far “underwhelming” isn’t taking a shot at the game, it’s stating a simple fact.
