Gearbox can't promise Borderlands demo

Although it would love to do one.

Gearbox has said that openworld RPG shooter Borderlands is unlikely to get a demo before, or even after, its planned October launch.

"We talk about a demo every day. We would love to do a demo," writer Mikey Neumann told Shacknews. "If and when we do one, I don't know if it'd be pre-launch or post-launch, because there's a lot of factors there."

"We would love to promise a demo, we can't quite yet, we just want to get the game done. That's always the hardest thing for developers to do - you never quite know how the time's going to work out. We're doing really well, but I can't promise it."

Gearbox re-unveiled Borderlands recently after months of silence, showing off stylish new presentation.

We tracked down the Mad Max-meets-Diablo PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 title at E3 for a closer look. Head over to our Borderlands preview to find out more.
