I've been rediscovering my love of Borderlands recently and couldn't have done so at a better time. Why? The Game of the Year edition of Borderlands releases on October 12 and in addition to giving you one of the best role playing shooter experiences around and all of its add-ons ('The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned', 'Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot', 'The Secret Armory of General Knoxx', and 'Claptrap's New Robot Revolution'), but also access to the Duke Nukem Forever Early Access Club.
Yes, that club will do exactly what it sounds like: give you early access to the DNF demo when it gets publicly released and some other things that 2K Games hasn't talked about yet. Wondering what you might be getting yourself into when it comes to the demo? Read about our PAX experience when the game was finally unveiled to the public.
The Duke Nukem Forever Early Access Club will come in the form of a certificate you register online, and anybody registered in the club will receive notification of when the demo arrives and will be first to control the King of all Shooters once more. A prospect that should excite anybody who played any Duke Nukem 3D when growing up and learned about machismo and badassery with the Duke.
This could be quite possibly be one of the best deals in gaming history. Why? You're getting a great game with all of its great content for a comparatively low price and access to a demo for Duke Nukem Forever! After waiting close to fourteen years now and finally getting a taste of the game once more, I can say without any doubt whatsoever that you will want to play that demo over and over again. That is to say, if it's the same demo that was at PAX.
The humdrum version of Borderlands is available now for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
