Duke Nukem Forever DLC to parody Team Fortress 2 and Call of Duty

Duke Nukem Forever - hail to the chef

The first Duke Nukem Forever DLC details have landed on the Gearbox forums , picked up by VG247 . It will be called the Parody Pack. It will add three new game modes, four new maps and new weapons designed to send up a few well known, slightly more successful shooters.

There's Call of Duke, a modern combat map populated by N00b T00b launchers, 2Forts1Bridge, with its own Heavy style minigun, and two other maps featuring sticky bombs and a weapon known only as the "DFG."

The DLC will be out this Autumn, and will be free to the First Access Members who pre-ordered Duke Nukem Forever before its release. Two screenshots have been released along with more DLC details, which you'll find below.

Here's a summary of the Parody Pack's innards, as supplied on the Gearbox forums:

  • 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.
