What is Brink?
Brink is a brand-new First Person Shooter coming to the Xbox 360™, PlayStation® 3, and the PC in Fall 2010. All three versions are being developed simultaneously and in-house by Splash Damage.
What's the story?
Brink takes place in the near future on a man-made floating city at sea called the Ark, made up of hundreds of separate islands and spread out over several square miles. Originally built as an experimental self-sufficient and 100% "green" habitat, the reported rapid rise of the Earth's oceans has forced the Ark to become a refuge for humanity. Crammed with the original Ark Founders (and their descendants) as well as tens of thousands of refugee "Guests", the Ark exists in total isolation from the rest of the world.
Now, at the 40th anniversary of the founding of the Ark and after almost 25 years of social unrest since the influx of the Guests, mankind's last refuge is on the brink of all-out civil war, and it's your actions – whether you side with the Security or Resistance – that will decide the future of Ark and the human race.
Does Brink feature multiplayer and single-player?
Brink blurs the lines between single player, multiplayer and co-op, and allows you to switch seamlessly between them. As you play, you gain experience points that you can use to advance your character's development. From customizing your look to unlocking all-new new skills and abilities, Brink will offer a comprehensive customization and leveling system, enabling you to truly make your character your own.
