Gearbox and 2K Games think you might still be willing to bet on Duke with this expansion for the crude shooter.
Duke has, I think taken all the knocks that can really be given the long-delayed release of Duke Nukem Forever. At this point, you're in one of two camps: you didn't like it for its lack of polish, actual toilet humor, and lackluster shooting or you knew what you were getting into and frankly it's a miracle that the game even exists. So Gearbox, six months after the game's release is continuing to support the game for those of you sticking it out in the latter camp with the second DLC release, "The Doctor Who Cloned Me," bringing a new chunk of story and more multiplayer maps to the console and PC versions of the game.
Here's the good word on the DLC from the press release:
The Doctor Who Cloned Me 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. 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.
Additionally, The Doctor Who Cloned Me adds four new multiplayer maps to the mix:
- Sky-High: 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.
- Command: EDF command center with an imprisoned BattleLord at its core! A two-level map featuring winding stairs, straightaway corridors, and jump pads.
- Drop Zone: 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.
- Biohazard: 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.
"The Doctor Who Cloned Me" DLC is available for 800 Points on Xbox Live and $9.99 for the PS3 and PC.
