Duke Nukem Forever demo 'early access' included with Borderlands GOTY Edition


2K Games has announced that buying the Borderlands "Game of the Year Edition" will grant you entry into what it's calling the "Duke Nukem Forever Early Access Club." In other words, the Borderlands re-release -- which bundles together the original, Gearbox-developed "role-playing shooter" and all its DLC -- comes with a code to download the DNF demo (plus other, undefined "goodies").

Now, here's where we'd normally tell you when said demo would be available to said club members ... Problem is, 2K isn't saying exactly when we can expect the DNF demo -- apart from "prior to the retail launch of the game" in calendar 2011. There's also no word on just how much longer those who are not in the "early access club" would have to wait for their demo. But, hey, you've already waited forever for the game -- what's a few more weeks or months?

The Borderlands GOTY Edition will be available on October 12 for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
