Duke Nukem Forever campaign takes 16 hours to complete

Randy Pitchford was at the Mana Bar in Brisbane over the weekend to give a public demonstration of Duke Nukem Forever and answer some questions from the awaiting fans and media.

One of the answers that surprised me was when Randy was asked how long the campaign for Duke Nukem Forever will be and he answered it as only Randy does.

One of the benefits of being developed last generation...

PRHB HYBRiiD2832d ago

i dont know about any duke nukem game o.o ive only played the one for ps one there were strippers and some pigs idk wtf that was but i liked it xD.

ape0072832d ago (Edited 2832d ago )

o man you got it right.

the point is that I hope DNF uses the same old school level design, multiple weapons at hands, secret places, c;ever design, red, yellow and blue keys etc...., not linear with only 2 weapons at hand, enough linearity, enough moving from A to B, Im gonnna puke

visualb2832d ago

good! FPS's now days are too short

anything below 8 hours isn't worth the cash (8+ hours is fine imo, especially if its very impressive/fun)

omni_atlas2832d ago

Bye-bye MW2's campaign. This is awesome news.

ape0072832d ago

it's not "fun" or "cool" hating mw2 or anything "popular", it's an old trick and people got bored of it, Move on....

-GoldenTimeLover-2832d ago

I dont hate MW2 itself, just the 4 hour campaign. I even played it. Now, are you telling me its cool to love a ridiculously short campaign?

HDgamer2832d ago

Ape is definitely Contradicting you. He's saying he loves paying for a broken game with very short gameplay.

visualb2832d ago

because its "cool"?


since when is having an opinion cool?

I played MW2, I f*cking hated it. IMO, it was and is sh!t and its one of the most over rated games ever, completely broken and lacking in any sort of skill or depth.

I don't say that because its !"cool"!, I say it because thats what I think

ape0072832d ago

mw2 campaign was good but short but overall it didn't live up to the legendary call of duty 4 campaign

sry if I was a bit rude but I love duke nukem sooo much, I don't want to see or remember the linearity that is this generation's shooters in a DUKE discussion

I hope DNF carry on the same old formula with mindblowing gfx

FWIW, I've loved both MW and MW2's campaigns. That was total bonus, too, since I've gotten hundreds of hours out of the MP modes. The modern FPS's primary value proposition is the MP.

I can remember the Wolf 3D/Doom/Duke days and really, those long "campaigns" were initially designed to be the meat of the game but over time it shifted to MP. And to be honest, I thought Doom/Duke/etc SUCKED as SP games compared to modern FPS campaigns even if they were longer. Duke was hardly a coherent campaign. It felt like a bunch of "levels" with retarded AI and goofy monsters and Duke saying cutely crude macho one-liners while doing a bad Clint Eastwood impersonation.

It was good mindless fun and I'll gladly rent the new title but I'll take killer multiplayer ALL DAY LONG over that stuff, so it better have a serious MP component if they want sales from people like me. If it ends up being primarily an SP game I will wait for it to hit the bargain bin or skip it all together.

As an adult, I don't have time to play 100 hours online AND a 20 hour campaign, a 6 hour campaign that is really well done coupled with a game I can play for several more months off and on in MP mode is an AWESOME thing!

I love the modern FPSs.

I've been a gamer since the Atari 2600 and Duke is a FUN character but that game is a throwback to the BAD OLD DAYS of FPS, IMHO, so it better bring some quality updates or it deserves to flop.

N4GAddict2832d ago

Great to see a FPS with a long campaign

Pandamobile2832d ago

Excellent. Last time I had an FPS game take longer than 10 or so hours was Crysis in 2007 :\

JasonPC360PS3Wii2832d ago

Borderlands and Fallout are calling

westy5522832d ago

Since when was borderlands and fallout FPS??

JasonPC360PS3Wii2832d ago (Edited 2832d ago )

Far Cry, Far Cry 2, Bioshock, Bioshock 2, Call of Juarez, F.E.A.R., F.E.A.R. Files, The Orange Box, Prey and Operation Flashpoint 2 are also long games.

Borderlands is a FPS/RPG it's FPS first because it's all about the guns. Also from what I have read Duke Nukem Forever will have a level up rpg elements. FPS/RPG

TheColbertinator2832d ago

He said FPS not FPS/RPG hybrids

Akagi2832d ago

Last FPS game that took me over 10 hours was Red faction 2 on PC. 2 Years ago. :/
