Brink gets new release date

Brink gets new release date

Bethesda has moved the release date on Splash Damage's Brink forward by a whole week.

Bethesda has moved the release date for Brink forward by a week, claiming that developer Splash Damage has managed to finish production ahead of schedule.

Brink will now see a May 10 release in the US, while it will hit Europe and the rest of the world a few days later on May 13.

Brink is the next game from Splash Damage, the team behind the Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory and Quake Wars: Enemy Territory games.

Billed as a first-person shooter that blends together its singleplayer and multiplayer modes, Brink has players cast as either lawmen or rebels on a floating city called The Ark - the last bastion of civilization in an over-populated world. Missions are mainly objective based and combat makes heavy use of a Mirror's Edge-style free-running system.

You can check out our latest hands-on preview of Brink for more information on the game, or check out the trailer below if you want a quicker and more explosive overview.

I can't honestly decide whether I want to try this or not. It'll probably be one of those 'impulse 75% off on Steam' purchases...

mirrors edge was alright, adn would like to see more action games with less guns, something like cycle courier meets road rash (if you guys old enough for that)

I'm frightened by this kind of FPS after the epic fail that was apb. :( I know this isn't an mmo, but with the "single player game blending seamlessly with multiplayer", it sounds like it could either be full of win or a huge disappointment. I SO wanted apb to be good that I fear getting my hopes up over any kind of remotely innovative FPS.

THIS I would buy... loved the games on my Mega Drive (Genesis)... Duke is a breeze from the past, I wish they could get back some of the old IP's... Not that crap that SEGA does of bringing Dreamcast/Genesis games for too much cash.

New games based on old ideas... I would love it

I too approve of Road Rash. It needs a modern version!

Brink? Maybe I'll have a look when it's a bit cheaper! I think my May budget for games is going towards L.A. Noire.

I've always though horse racing could do with road rash treatment to make it a bit more exciting.....

Hello there.

To answer your question; not really. While it may be class based, I don't think Team Fortress 2 is unique thanks to it's style and humour.

And also hats.

Been looking forward to this for a while. Really wish I could play a demo first though. Anyone remember those?!

I was made aware of this game over a year ago, looking forward to playing it with a bunch of friends.
