With so many different FPS titles on the market it’s quite hard for developers to differentiate their offerings in a market largely dominated by the likes of Call of Duty. Splash Damage chose to take a somewhat unique approach with Brink which essentially combines Call of Duty and Mirror’s Edge allowing players to gun down baddies while transversing the environment in a parkour-esque fashion.
Seeing how the critic community is a tough one it’s not really a surprise that Brink has received some mixed reviews. However, Splash Damage is doing what they can to keep gamers happy and make Brink a more pleasant experience. In fact, just today they announced that they have updated the Xbox 360 version of the game to limit its online matchmaking to 8-on-8 matches in an attempt to curb and hopefully eliminate lag.
Not only that, but the developer has also let us know that they are hard at working polishing some DLC to be made available at some point next month. Unfortunately, we don’t know the specifics of what’s going to be included in said DLC pack other than maps it has been said that there will be additional content. What we do know for sure is that Splash Damage will be cutting us all a break offering the DLC pack free of charge. Now all we need is an official release date for this DLC pack and some more details as to what it includes and we’ll be golden.
