Duke Nukem Forever DLC Next Week

Gearboxity announces the first DLC for Duke Nukem Forever is coming next week:

The Hail to the Icons Parody Pack and its four new multiplayer maps for Duke Nukem Forever will be available beginning Tuesday, October 11.

As promised, everyone who joined the First Access Club before Duke Nukem Forever launched in their territory will get it free*! For those that aren't in First Access Club, the pack will run 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox 360 and $9.99 on PlayStation Network and Steam in the US.

In addition, updates to the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Duke Nukem Forever will roll out the same day, adding support for the new content along with various optimizations and bug fixes.

Until then, check out the Hail to the Icons mini-site for the latest on the new maps, modes and weapons at www.dukenukemforever.com/hailtotheicons

I didn't really follow it after the initial release.
Was it really worse than Daikatana?
No. The DNF desaster is something different.

Daikatana had some major, game breaking bugs at release and was "only" a standard shooter with some nice ideas like RPG elements (choosing between making you stronger or your sword). Most people were upset because of this horrible and highly arrogant marketing campaign. The game itself was quite enjoyable after some patches. Nothing spectacular, but ok.

DNF on the other hand might be a solid standard console shooter, coming from Activisions Value Label, targeting Wallmart buyers and such, who are only out for some quick, cheap thrill. Nothing to write home about. But DNF isnt just a standard console shooter. Its Duke Nukem Forever. And being that, its just horrible. Its a blasphemy to the Duke franchise and in the long run DNF might have damaged this IP beyond repair. Take2 should have scrapped this project. Releasing those charred remains of more than ten years of dev hell was not a good idea at all.
