2K Games has announced plans to offer a special treat to those buying the Game of the Year edition of hit shooter Borderlands.

Those who pick up a copy will receive a free membership certificate for the Duke Nukem Forever First Access Club. By entering their unique key, they'll get early access to the playable DNF demo.

But when is that demo out, exactly? 2K isn't saying. The press release simply states it will be released "prior to the retail launch of the game". Which is slated for sometime next year - February, in fact, according to American shopkeepers.

Borderlands GOTY edition launches in the US on 12th October. The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions are priced at $59.99, while the PC one will cost $49.99. The package includes all four downloadable add-ons. reckons the GOTY edition will arrive in the UK on 26th November, carrying an RRP of £39.99 / £24.99. There's no word on whether it will also give us early access to the DNF demo too.
