After 15 long years, against all odds, Duke Nukem Forever, the first-person shooter video game sequel that was developed by 3D Realms and finished by Gearbox Software, was launched on Tuesday 14 June 2011. And now the promised playable demo for Duke Nukem Forever has also been released on the Steam and the Xbox Live services, for the PC and Xbox 360, respectively.
The demo was previously restricted to the people who pre-ordered Duke Nukem Forever or purchased the Borderlands Game of the Year edition, aka the “First Access Club” Members, but now all users can free download and get a taste of this long awaited game before they buy.
The King is Back!
Cocked, loaded and ready for action, Duke delivers epic ass-kicking, massive weapons, giant explosions and pure unadulterated fun!
Put on your shades and step into the boots of Duke Nukem. The alien hordes are invading and only Duke can save the world. Pig cops, alien shrink rays and enormous alien bosses can’t stop this epic hero from accomplishing his goal: to save the world, save the babes and to be a bad-ass while doing it.
The King arrives with an arsenal of over-the-top weapons, non-stop action, and unprecedented levels of interactivity. With hours and hours of action, and a range of bodacious multiplayer modes, rest assured knowing the fun goes on and on.
With a $50 street price, you probably would like to try before you buy Duke Nukem Forever. The free demo is now available for the PC and Xbox 360 platforms, through the Steam digital download service and the Xbox Live online service. For PlayStation 3 users, you will have to wait for some time before the demo is released on the Sony platform. That shouldn’t be a long wait since Gearbox Software is already working with Sony to finish the demo.
