Gearbox Software, after probably retreating to its den to lick its wounds after the near universal panning of Duke Nukem Forever, has finally announced Duke's first DLC. (Hey, they've got to earn some of the money to make up for the deficit that Duke's failure probably made them go through. The thing is folks... the game is not that terrible.)

They're calling the DLC The Hail to the Icons Parody Pack, which is set to arrive in the fall sometime. It adds some multiplayer maps and creates some new game modes. Sticking to Duke's guns, each of these modes and maps are in parody to a popular videogame. The new maps include:

Quote
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.
Sandpit – 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 new modes? One is Freeze Tag, which allows players to freeze and shatter their opponents. Hot Potato is a mode where you hvae to try to hold onto a babe for as long as possible (think Borat). Hail to the King is the standard free-for-all mode.

They haven't revealed the price yet, but First Access Club members (lucky bastards, yet again) get free access to the DLC.
