2K Games have announced that the first DLC pack for http://www.trueachievements.com/Duke-Nukem-Forever-xbox....htm
is going to hit 360s this autumn. Confusingly titled "Hail to the Icons Parody Pack", it features three new game modes and four new multiplayer maps each containing brand new weapons.
For those that pre-ordered Duke Nukem Forever
, 2K have kept good their promise
- if you are a First Acccess Club member, the DLC will be completely free of charge. Unfortunately at the time of writing, a price has not been confirmed for those who are not FAC members.
Here's what 2K had to say about the DLC:
Three All-New Modes –
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.
And finally, for those hardcore Duke fans who just can't wait for the DLC to arrive, 2K Games is offering a chance to play it early when they host Multiplayer DukeMatches at their HQ in California on Thursday, August 4th.
