Duke Nukem Forever’s first downloadable content has been announced by developer Gearbox Software. The DLC will add in four new maps, four new weapons and three extra modes.

The new modes include Freeze Tag, in which players are supposed to cooperate in order to freeze and shatter their opponents in succession for huge point streaks and combos. Hot Potato is a competition in which holding the babe as long as possible is the objective of the game, while Hail to the King is a free-for-all mode.

The maps? Below is a list and description from the developer’s forum:

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 new content will be available on PS3 and Xbox 360, although a price has yet to be confirmed. But it will be free to all First Access Club members who registered before the game launched in their country.
