Bethesda on Tuesday will release its multiplayer-focused shooter Brink for Xbox 360, PS3 and Windows PC, a full review for which we’ll be publishing as soon as the embargo lifts. Our impressions are under wraps until then, but to get you in the right mindset before Brink releases, we thought you’d want to see a video of Brink in action and get a high-level explanation of its various multiplayer objectives.
Brink, like Counter-Strike and Team Fortress 2, is highly focused on online mayhem and, again like TF2, is an extremely class-driven FPS. But you don’t need us to tell you that; you just need to watch the video below to figure that one out for yourselves. With four different player classes and a variety of ways to tackle each level, Brink is bound to take some of your online gaming time away from the competition. Just how much, you’ll have to wait until our review late this evening (or early tomorrow morning, for those on the East Coast).
Now, on to that Brink multiplayer video. This five-minute video, like the others in Bethesda’s “Get Smart” video series for Brink, is taken from the game’s Dossier menu — aka its in-game tutorial — and makes exclusive use of in-game footage to illustrate its points.
