Despite what many critics and disgruntled gamers said over the summer, some of us really liked Duke Nukem Forever. Sure, there was an air of fragmentation that obviously stemmed from the game's unusually long development, but it was still good to see Duke's return and listen to his cheese ball one-liners again.
On Tuesday, 2K Games announced the release of Duke's very first downloadable expansion pack, The Doctor Who Cloned Me. Now available for $9.99 on the PlayStation Network Store, Xbox Live Marketplace and Windows PC, the new content is "bursting with hours of the over-the-top Duke goodness that fans love."
"Deep in the heart of Area 51, Dr. Proton has been hatching his maniacal plan," reads the description. "Fueled by new ego boosts, Duke is ready to take on evil clones, alien queens and anything else that comes his way in order to save the world and his babes! This full, new single-player campaign includes brand new weapons, all-new enemy types and bosses, more Achievements/Trophies and many more interactive items within the world."
The DLC also adds four new multiplayer maps including Sky-High, Command, Drop Zone and Biohazard. Here's a description of each:
The alien-infested corporate offices of Pooty, Inc. near the center of Las Vegas. This map includes three indoor floors taken over by the aliens and two rooftops, jump pads, stairwells, and building-to-building combat.
EDF command center with an imprisoned BattleLord at its core! A two-level map featuring winding stairs, straightaway corridors, and jump pads.
Rooftop of Duke’s Lady Killer Casino featuring indoor and outdoor combat and stairwells for platforming, an EDF dropship on landing pad, and a bottomless pit.
Fight in the Breston Plant Nuclear Power facilities and compete across multiple floors in locker rooms, restrooms with showers, control rooms, and the nuclear waste storage room.
