Duke Nukem Forever getting new DLC later this year

If you haven’t already had your fill of Duke Nukem Forever come this fall, 2K Games and Gearbox are coming out with a DLC pack that should satisfy your insatiable hunger for all things Duke.

The DLC is titled “Hail to the Icons Parody Pack” and, as you may have divined from the title, the DLC offers up several maps that parodies other well-known titles such as Call of Duty and Team Fortress 2.

New maps aren’t the only thing you’ll be getting, however. You’ll also get access to three new multiplayer modes: Freeze Tag, Hot Potato and a free-for-all gametype known as Hail to the King.

Here’s a little more detail on what you’ll be getting, courtesy of 2K Games:


Freeze Tag provides some of the most fun team gameplay in Duke Nukem Forever. Players cooperate to freeze and shatter their opponents in succession for huge point streaks and combos. See who can hold on to the babe the longest in Hot Potato and play free-for-all Duke style in Hail to the King.


Call of Duke – Duke engages in modern combat in a war-torn city. Foes don’t stand a chance against the Duke when he spams the map with the N00b T00b.

Sandbox – Players take the role of mini-Duke in a giant sandbox with two bases at either end made out of children’s toys. This map features Sticky Bombs.

Inferno – Time machine engage! Duke does combat in a hellish landscape of lava and teleporters. Who turned on the 16-bit graphics, and more importantly, where did this DFG come from?

2Forts1Bridge – Hats? Duke doesn’t need no stinking hats. Give him a minigun and he’ll beat off all comers.

There’s no word at the moment on what the DLC will end up running you, but if you joined the First Access club, you’ll be getting the DLC sent over for free.
