Want to be First to Duke Nukem Forever Demo?

Can you believe it? Duke Nukem Forever is real again and will be an actual, finished product sometime in 2011. Yes, you may still be skeptical, but the game is now in the hands of Gearbox Software, the makers of Borderlands.

Before the game will ship, Gearbox will produce a demo to give everyone a taste of the modern age Duke – but it won't be available to everyone right away. If you love Duke Nukem, hopefully you'll love Borderlands too. 2K Games and Gearbox Software are trying to give Borderlands one last push with a game of the year edition that'll also grant its owners early access to the Duke Nukem Forever demo.

Borderlands Game of the Year edition will be available beginning October 12 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for $59.99, and for PC for $49.99. this package will come complete with all the Borderlands DLC catalog thus far, which includes The Zombie Island or Dr. Ned, Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, and Claptrap's New Robot Revolution (regularly $10 each).

The real seller could be the free membership certificate for the Duke Nukem Forever First Access Club. This certificate entitles owners who register their unique key to "a wealth of goodies," including the earliest possible admittance to the Duke Nukem Forever playable demo.

For all gamers who haven't yet picked up Borderlands, this is a great deal. For those who grabbed Borderlands when it launched last year (like I did), this is a bit of a bummer.

    is it wrong to pirate a demo, duke nukem edition
  • SchizoFrog
    As alidan has hinted at... I personally will not think twice about downloading this demo. I mean the demo is not even being bundled with a newish game. Although I am fairly sure that the demo will miss the one thing we all want from DN... formidable online multiplayer.

    Then you'll have to buy the new release of Borderlands.
    Or go on youtube the day of the release.

    If I have some cash, I'll be sure to pick up the GoTY edition. :D

    as for dnf... when it hits steam i'll probably get it but not really intrested in beta testing it, never really got the point of beta testing for free .. so i'm gonna find your glitches on my time for your profit
