The first batch of DLC for http://www.trueachievements.com/Duke-Nukem-Forever-xbox....htm
was announced a while ago; back in July, actually
, for those of you with very long memories or history books.
Today, however, Gearbox have announced a solid release date and the price for "Hail to the Icons Parody Pack". The DLC will arrive on October 11th, and will cost 800 MSP to anyone who isn't in the First Access Club. Of course, if you are a First Access Club member, this DLC will be totally free to download.
To recap the DLC content, you can expect:
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
Gearbox took the opportunity to mention that, on that same day, a title update will be released to correct some bugs, add support for the new content and bring about 'various optimisations'.
