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.

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.

We’ll be sharing more details about the updates, including those coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, as they’re finalized. Thanks again for your support!


Well so far this sounds good

Valve Anti-Cheat System (VAC) support

This means anyone using that program/hack to get the FOV and console should probably remove this soon because it alters the .dll and .exe of DNF.
This is considered a hack to VAC.

Then they better give us the FOV and console, or they can shove their two extra weapons up their asses!

Jesus H. Tapdancing Christ, if it ain't one thing it's another.

Someone should get word from GBX or Valve on this matter, but I ain't talking to those fucks at the league office.

I didn't think of this at the time. How do you actually remove it? I hope I don't have to reinstall the whole thing...

And it's great that they've doubled the weapons, that makes things 10 times better as now you actually have options (as opposed to having one weak weapon and one strong weapon which only holds about 5-10 shots). But since they're adding weapons, why not just let Duke hold all the weapons at once? Surely it wouldn't be that much more difficult.

It's like George Broussard and Randy Pitchford signed a deal with the devil that DNF could be released but Duke can never hold all weapons at once. Hence a curse was thrust upon the Duke community...

I just thought, would it be easier to get the Gunslinger achievement now?

Yup, a lot easier actually. For me personally, it was a piece of cake with the 2 weapon limit. The 4 weapon limit will make it that much easier. :lol:

That's a huge improvement. Now follow through with the SDK and we might actually have something great in a year.

4 weapons will do just fine

main gun: shottie/pistol/chaingun

explosive weapon: rpg/devastator

far range gun: rail gun

'fun' gun: freeze thrower/shrink gun

Good news, especially the FOV thing.

Would probably fuck up gameplay balance if no other changes are made.

Well, this will certainly warrant an extra playthrough. Maybe they'll fix the missing blood at the same time... we can only hope, anyway.

That's why they shouldn't have designed the game with the two weapon system in the first place :lol:

It is arguable if they designed the game around the two weapon system in the first place! Perhaps 5th place :lol:

Frightfan: Should we wait until GT is persuaded to release the entire Blood source code?

Matt Saettler: Don't know about the Blood source from lith. I doubt they'll release it.

Frightfan: [Jason Hall] already said he would if it were up to him, but it isn't - it's GTI's game now.

Matt Saettler: Jace is wrong. I'm the one that negotiated the contracts. Jace probably doesn't even know what's really in them....

This is great fucking news, and hopefully it will shut up whinners about how GBX isn't listening to the fans.


Wait... they said Singeplayer.... what about multiplayer? will it still have two weapons?

Finally an update! =)
The four-weapons limit will be enough to manage a good arsenal, for me at least. Just like in the upcoming Rage.
Now, if they fix the blood issues and expand the ammunition limit it'll be a win. Low hopes about mod tools though.

By the way they worded it, the normal campaign won't have 4 weapons... it seems it's an extra menu option like the Duke3D freezer...

Feels kinda like using a mutator but hey... it's something.

I thought you could carry as many weapons as you want in Rage

It's a good solution if it prevents people from getting the Gunslinger achievement if they "cheat" by using the 4-weapon limit.

It'll be considered cheat? It's not like I'm hacking the game to enable unlimited ammo or something. Well, those achievements don't unlock any extra content (like concept art or bonus levels and guns) so I don't care anyway, heh. :lol:

I think I saw in a gameplay video four slots of weapons on the HUD.

I read you can keep any weapon you find for the rest of the game, I did notice that 4 weapon slot in the video though, that's either just for consoles or its for adding 4 selected weapons out of you pack for quick access

I hope they also put in extra save slots. Even if they're not manual. I'd take 3 game slots, for instance, even if it was still checkpoint-based.

I knew Gearbox wouldn't let us down. Now it's in their hands, they will take good care of the game. I only hope that they give us FOV options in the console versions and fix the online play in time for the DLC. There is hope yet.

Almost every pc gamer has asked for more than 2 weapons in this game much before the game was actually released.
They have either avoided giving us answers or they have denied our requests.
Now, almost 2 months after the official release date, they are coming out of their holes and announcing that our wishes are partially being granted.
My question to all of you is!

WHY NOW?
Why are they giving us fov changing abilities, why are they giving us 4 weapons almost 2 months after DNF got released?
I have my theories but I rather keep them to myself out of politeness.

I would imagine two reasons:

1. Already restricted time constraints.
2. They thought they knew better than us.
