Remember Duke Nukem Forever? After all that hype, the game did kinda disappear fairly quickly once it was finally launched. But 2K aren’t about to let the game go quietly, revealing the first heapin’ helpin’ of DLC for the game.
The Icons Parody Pack is coming to DNF on all three platforms – PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 – and is due out a little later this year, in the North American Fall. Everyone can get their hands on it, but if you’re in that elite First Access Club, you’ll get it for free.
Expect three new game modes, four new multiplayer maps, and a bunch of new weaponry. In fact – here’s the details, just for you, with all the usual pop-culture references and a bit of a dig at an uber-popular cartoon shooter.
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.
- Sandpit: 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 Grenades.
- 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.
…anyway. If you want to get your hands on the Duke and his new content a little earlier than the rest of the world, and you’re able to get to San Francisco on August 4th, you may want to check out the [surl=http://www.2kgames.com/blog/new-duke-nukem-forever-content-arriving-this-fall-come-play-at-2k-headquarters-august-4]2K Games blog[/surl], where the lovely Elizabeth is inviting gamers to come get some.
