Gearbox Software has announced that it has plans to release a Duke Nukem Forever demo in the near future, one which will be available for all fans to have a go with.
The Opposing Force developer previously announced that a demo redemption code would be included with Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition, which goes on sale this Friday for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Now, it seems that won't be an exclusive.
"The demo is going to go out to everybody,
" says Gearbox's Steve Gibson in a comment to Digital Spy
"The feeling is that we want people to feel that it's real. We want people to know that 'holy crap, they're actually making plans.' It's kind of like, Borderlands: Game Of The Year is great and by the way, these guys are also working on this, and it is real, and we're trying to get that association, that proof.
"These guys are making concrete plans, they're are putting stuff in a box already with Duke's face on it. It's actually like a certificate, and you'll see that it's like 'In Duke We Trust'. It's fun. We're thrilled to death.
Gibson also confirmed that the demo will be available ahead of the full game's release and will be different to what has been previously shown about the game.
"We want to - I don't want to spoil the surprise - but I think it's going to be fun and people are going to be surprised at what we put in there and what happens with it.
