Bethesda Softworks, a ZeniMax Media company, today announced that its acclaimed first-person shooter, BrinkTM, is now available in retail stores across North America, and will go on sale in Europe on May 13. Developed at Splash Damage, the game is available for the Xbox 360 video game entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, and Games for Windows.
"We’re excited to be getting Brink into the hands of gamers," said Pete Hines, VP of PR and Marketing at Bethesda Softworks. "It’s clear from the response from fans who have had a chance to play the game over the last few months that fans are eager to play with and against their friends online."
Brink, an immersive first-person shooter that blends single-player, co-op, and multiplayer gameplay into one seamless experience, was named as the ‘Game of Show’ at Eurogamer Expo 2010, while MSNBC.com declared "Brink is wickedly fun" and gave it a 9 out of 10.
Brink allows you to develop your character playing alone, with your friends, and against others online. Featuring dynamic battlefields, extensive customization options, and an innovative control system, Brink lets you choose your side, Security or Resistance, as you engage in heated battle for control of the Ark. Once an experimental, self-sufficient and 100% "green" habitat, the Ark is now home to the original founders, their descendants, and thousands of refugees made homeless by the rapid rise of the Earth’s oceans.
Decide the combat role you want to assume as you fight to save yourself and mankind’s last refuge, one that is on the brink of all-out civil war.
Brink is rated T for Teen by the ESRB.
