It's been quite a long time since Splash Damage first took the wraps off its incredibly promising multiplayer shooter Brink, and
a wonderful hands-on session
only made the wait even more torturous. Now, though, there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Brink's nearly cleared for launch, and it'll be landing on May 17.
For the uninitiated, Brink's a team-based FPS that's big on subtle, smart refinements to the genre – including the vaunted S.M.A.R.T. movement system, which makes clambering over obstacles simple and quick. The game's aiming to position itself as a nexus point between single-player, competitive multiplayer, and co-op. Ambitious, sure, but from what we've seen, it may very well pull it off.
So then, back to counting down the days. Only now we're not, you know, counting from infinity .
