WotC has indicated some of the content from the DMG that's going to be previewed in coming weeks. It's an assortment of magic
items, the table of contents, and an interesting entry which reads "Fire arms, explosives, and alien technology"
. There's a caveat, though -- they will only release these previews if they hit certain fundraising goals for their Extra Life charity efforts this year
. "If you haven’t heard, the D&D community is coming together this fall to participate in the Extra Life charity event, which raises money for kids at Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. The Wizards of the Coast team will be livestreaming its 24-hour D&D charity game on October 25 – 26."
So here are the previews they'll release. Right now they're at $18,000 with their fundraising efforts. The previews will be released at the following stretch goals:
$25,000—Deck of Many Things
$30,000—Figurines of Wondrous Power
$35,000—A selection of magic rings.
$40,000—Eye of Vecna, Hand of Vecna and the Orb of Dragonkind
$45,000—Fire arms, explosives, and alien technology
$50,000—Table of Contents
