Duke Nukem Forever Demo Dated: Only for Pre-Order Customers

By Tina Chubb - May 17, 2011

We have some interesting news now for those of you that haven’t quite given up on the long-awaited Duke Nukem Forever game yet, as we’ve just heard that the upcoming demo has now been dated. However, it isn’t all good news, as it looks like it’s only for pre-order customers.

According to an article by Terry Lucy at godisageek.com, the developer Gearbox Software has recently released a new announcement video, to let fans know that the demo will be arriving on June 3rd across all platforms – in other words, the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.

There is a catch however as we mentioned above. Those who want to be a member of the First Access Club (as the developer is calling it) will have to have pre-ordered the Duke Nukem Forever game at selected retailers. Those who buy the Borderland GOTY Edition will also gain access.

Several retailers are offering customers entry into Gearbox’s First Access Club. UK gamers can pre-order highly anticipated game at GAME, Play, Amazon, Zavvi, TheHut and Gamestop (Ireland only). Meanwhile, US gamers can order it from GameStop and Amazon.

The actual game is due to arrive in UK stores on June 10th and North American stores on June 14th. You can view the announcement trailer via the godisageek.com website. Have you pre-order Duke Nukem Forever?

    I pre ordered, and got my activation code already.  Now I’m just watching their demo window (on the website), for the rest of info or codes to appear on june 3rd.  Obviously if someone is really interested in the game, they should pre-order at amazon.  That then gives them the demo earlier.  They could always cancel the game in the event they didn’t like what they saw.  However, I’d think most people would be pleased.  It looks like it’s going to be a pretty good game, with tons of playable content.  In fact it’s quoted as have four times the content of a typical call of duty game.  Considering it looks way fun in the videos, it should be a no brainier.  The other option is just to wait another 2 weeks or so and just get the demo without need for pre-order.  Pre-order only lets you get the free demo earlier.
