New Patch Gives Duke Nukem Pockets

| 29 Jul 2011 19:19

An upcoming patch for Duke Nukem forever allows the tank topped one to carry four guns at once.

Of all the things Duke Nukem Forever did wrong, and apparently it did lots of things wrong, there were a handful of design decisions particularly aggravating to long term fans of the series. Not least amongst them was Duke's now puny upper body strength, limiting him to carrying only two weapons a time. Gearbox seems to have listened to the fan outcry and an upcoming patch, while not restoring Duke to his former ten weapon glory, does allow everyone's favorite steroid-abusing misogynist to carry four weapons at once.

The weapon carry limit will be increased for all platforms, but the PC version will boast a few extra tweaks. After the patch, PC versions of Duke Nukem Forever will support Valve' s Anti-Cheat system (VAC), Push-To-Talk microphone settings and will allow players to edit the game's Field of View, helping alleviate that zoomed-in feel that makes old-school PC gamers nauseous.

Gearbox hasn't specified a date for the patch yet nor finalized exactly what's going to be contained within. While you're waiting, you can check out the recently announced Hail to the Icons Parody Pack, if you're so inclined.
