Duke Nukem Forever DLC Details?

A post on eGamer lists various tidbits about Duke Nukem Forever from the contents of the demo for Gearbox Software's upcoming first-person shooter. They list clothing items, achievements, secret areas, names of multiplayer maps and game types, and more. This also includes three DLC listings which appear to be a weapon pack, a multiplayer map pack, and a single-player map pack. Thanks Eurogamer via BeyondUnreal.

Add to that, the fact that they didn't release the demo public, so only people with half-a-clue where to get stuff played it by now.

And trust me, if you played the demo you wouldn't buy it, or if you do.. then that is just sad sad sad...

Yeah, that was a clever and devious bit of marketing. Apparently the idea was that only loyal converts should be in a position to talk about the demo, and anyone who's skeptical is excluded. Didn't quite pan out, but I don't think that will stop other developers from following suit.

THE DEMO IS THE GAME.

THe demo is actually a level in the game, nothing changed.

I am still waiting for the free public demo so I can try it. Is it that linear like Call of Duty's single player games?

I did the same. In particular the bit where you strafe out of cover shooting a hovering thing with rockets felt so familiar and dull that it put the final kybosh on the demo's already underwhelming fare.

You may be right. Even after eleven years, people are still talking about Daikatana.

You're still its bitch

Well....the full version is exactly the same.
Best way to describe the game: Postal 2 set in a Duke game.

It is a dodge, cover, regen, dodge, cover, regen.
Isn't challenging at all, but when you DO die, load times are horrific.

Has some entertaining moments, but nothing spectacular.

Yes, the DEMO level is in the game. It is called Highway Battle: Part 2.

it seemed so obvious to me that DNF would be a complete failure and that gearbox was just capitalizing on the brand in order to make some fast cash  
Go forth, and kill!

I think you will all be surprised how fun full version is. My bet it gets mostly 8- 8.5 on most major gaming sites, Game has a lot in store for duke fans. believe me! do not judge it by demo, the game gets so over the top fun it will be talked about a year from now!

Oh I'm sure it'll be a huge hit with the 14 and under crowd, as well those who are mentally in that particular age group.

I played the duke3d for 5 whole minutes longer than I played the DS3 demo...

So painful. So disappointed. So not surprised at all.

This is the only thing I've heard from ppl who played the demo. I get the impression that gearbox was desperate to get ppl to pre-order the game and hoped the demo would make ppl pre-order....sounds like they should have taken their chances without a demo.

Everyone I've heard from has canceled the pre-order after playing the demo. On goozex they are pulling their EA token which puts them in line before the games release. I'm really tempted to pull mine and get in line for another game...

I see it's coming to Onlive, would be awesome if a trial was available on release.

"Dont judge it by the demo", the point of the demo is to give an idea of gameplay and enjoyment. It may be that the full game is better but they don't really do themselves any favors by putting together such a shitty demo. How would you know anyway? The 360 version only leaked last night, did you beat it already? Even the chinese P2P Steam releases were just out this morning.
