Duke Nukem Forever First Access Club gets free multiplayer add-on

Gearbox Software details added perk for exclusive constituency; no further information offered; demo due out tomorrow.

Tomorrow, Gearbox Software will roll out a demo for the long-in-development Duke Nukem Forever, where First Access Club members can be the first to try out a single-player campaign level. However, that's not the only perk the club offers.
Duke Nukem Forever's first multiplayer add-on will be free for Club members.

Gearbox has announced that First Access Club members registered by today will score the first downloadable add-on for Duke Nukem Forever's multiplayer component for free. Unfortunately, the developer did not divulge further information as to what the pack will contain.

Access to the First Access Club is granted by either having a copy of the Game of the Year Edition of Borderlands or preordering Duke Nukem Forever from participating retailers such as GameStop, Amazon, and EB Canada.

Duke Nukem Forever--once synonymous with vaporware--has gone gold ahead of its June 10 date with the international crowd and June 14 in North America.

When the game is launched, it will be available in both a standard edition, as well as a Balls of Steel Collector's Edition for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. This top-tier bundle includes a bust of the titular hero, a set of playing cards, dice, and two casino chips. A comic and hardcover art book are also included in the collection, along with a numbered certificate of authenticity.

Man I hate being poor - I'm gonna miss all of this and I'm a huge duke fan. Oh well patience is a virtue but it sucks I can't get all the preorder goodies like this addon pack whatever it is... as for the special edition stuff "meh"

@Landsharkk You are one lucky SOB! A lot of people had complaints about the demo, including myself, but I still think the final product is going to be great. Come get some!

Well, played the demo and... it's kind of dissapointing... Feels too simplistic and even the demo (although short) feels kind of repetitive. And it's physics and the mechanics of shooting feels stiff :/

I've played the full version already about a week or two ago. Let me say that as a big fan of Duke games in the past, this one does live up to the hype. It's ridiculous and over the top in the fun Duke Nukem way that we all love. I'm going to consider buying it pre-order just for the heck of it. The only thing I miss is playing co-op, maybe this multiplayer DLC is co-op, but that's something I don't know about yet.

If you haven't pre-ordered, you're not a Duke fan.
