DukePlus, sometimes also written as "Duke Plus," is a mod and total conversion designed for EDuke32. It was created by Dan Gaskill and first released November 17, 2007, but it continues to receive updates into the 2020s.

DukePlus was designed to enhance and extend the gameplay in Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition. Although a standard set of additional levels comes packaged with the mod, the mod was intended to allow other players to design custom user maps that could run specifically in DukePlus, taking advantage of the various enhancements.

  • Deep menu of toggleable enhancements and gameplay modifiers

  • Grabbable and pushable objects

  • Player ally AI
