Duke Nukem Forever demo released

Fans finally get back into the Mighty Boots of the Duke.

With just days to go until we run out of gum, Duke Nukem Forever fans have received an early treat from Gearbox Software ahead of the June 14th release date in the form of a playable demo, now available for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

The demo of the Duke in action was made available to fans who pre-ordered the game, as well as gamers who picked up the Borderlands Game of the Year Edition, and sees Duke battling it out with a typically gargantuan alien invader in an American football stadium.

But reception to the demo has been split, with gaming message boards and the Twitterverse praising and knocking the game for at once for its infantile humour and lengthy development process.

Duke Nukem was last seen saving babes and pummelling alien invaders in 1997's Duke Nukem 3D, with Duke Nukem Forever planned as a sequel for a mid-1998 release. However, despite several teasing screenshots and a gameplay trailer from E3 in 1998, the sequel was eventually canned, until being picked up again 12 years later by Gearbox Software.

Duke Nukem Forever will be released on June 14th, a whopping 14 years after it started development. In the meantime, check out the Duke Nukem Forever launch trailer below.
