Duke Nukem Does Have Multiplayer, And Here Are Details

If we can hang on to what’s posted over at the Official Xbox Magazine, then the upcoming Duke Nukem Forever game is set to feature four multiplayer game modes to reap carnage on: Dukematch, Team Dukematch, Capture the Babe, and Hail to the King.

So far, here are the details:

  • 8 Player maximum, two teams of four-players.
  • 10 maps at launch, including maps designed to play while Duke is shrunken to tiny size.
  • Jetpacks in some maps!
  • Confirmed weapons; pistol, shotgun, ripper chaingun, pipebomb, rpg, shrinker, railgun, freezer, devestator, tripbomb. Can only use 2 primary weapons at once along with pipebombs and tripbombs.

It’s looking like this could be a fun multiplayer experience. The idea was to take some of the most classic multiplayer game modes, and add a Duke spin on them. I think it’s going to match up well.

Here’s a humorous tip we received: apparently in Capture the babe (Duke’s version of Capture the Flag), teams are charged with capturing the opposing players’ babe. While you’re carrying her around she “freaks out,” and you have to settle her down with a nice little slap.

I can’t wait to play this game.
