2K Games and Gearbox Software have just announced that Duke Nukem First Access Club members will be the first to properly stimulate their joysticks playing the demo of Duke Nukem Forever beginning June 3, 2011. The big question everyone will ask is “Where were you the first time you played Duke Nukem Forever?” – and the only way to play the game before launch is to be a member of the First Access Club. Strictly for the biggest Duke Nukem fans, the First Access Club grants members access to highly volatile, eye-popping content, including never-before-seen materials, top secret information, and for-your-eyes-only art concepts. There are several ways fans can join the ultra-exclusive First Access Club, including pre-ordering the game from select retailers and by purchasing the Borderlands Game of the Year Edition on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 system and Windows PC. Glad to see a demo will be available pre-launch but I hate when they tie the demos to pre-order or purchase incentives like this, after 15 years of waiting everyone should be able to get their hands on the demo ASAP but that is just me.
Duke Nukem Forever launches internationally on June 10, 2011 and in North America on June 14, 2011.
