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.
