That's four weapons in singleplayer, not multiplayer. Also the Valve Anti-Cheat System (VAC) will be supported, voice chat, adjustable FOV and "other fixes".
"The development team has been hard at work combing through the feedback provided here and elsewhere, with updates based on this feedback currently in the works for all three platforms," posted Gearbox community manager, Chris Faylor.
"Among the changes coming to PC are a new expanded inventory option that allows you to carry up to four weapons in the single-player campaign, Valve Anti-Cheat System (VAC) support, push-to-talk voice chat, the ability to adjust FOV plus other fixes and improvements that are still being tested," he detailed. These are PC specific changes.
"We’ll be sharing more details about the updates, including those coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, as they’re finalized." Many criticised Duke Nukem Forever being locked to just two weapons especially given his huge arsenal in bygone days.
Blame was thrown at Gearbox Software for the extremely limited arsenal, but former 3D Realms boss George Broussard admits the decision was his actually.
"Yeah, blame us for it if you want. It may change in the future and I don't know what will happen with it, but it was us. I stand by it too, as you cannot discount designing games for a modern world and part of that world is consoles where the bulk of the sales can be."
"And on those consoles you have a controller. We tried for a long time to support lots of guns but we simply could not find a nice way to map it to a controller, despite trying 4-5 designs. We gave it enough time and decided to stop swimming against the current and adopt what was basically the "standard". It's not 1996 anymore," concluded Broussard.
Have you enjoyed Duke Nukem Forever? The critical reception of this very late to show-up first-person shooter has been mixed at best, with some praising it for keeping things 'traditional' while others were disappointed it felt so out of touch with today.
