Gearbox has announced a multiplayer downloadable content pack for Duke Nukem Forever.

Called the Hail to the Icons Parody pack, the DLC includes four new multiplayer maps and three new multiplayer modes themed around successful contemporary first-person shooters.

The three modes are Freeze Tag, Hot Potato and Hail to the King. 2K writes, “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.”

Gearbox describes the four new maps below:

  • 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.

The DLC pack is coming to all platforms in spring (NZST) this year.
