Splash Damage's PvP shooter Brink is that rarest of things: a title whose distant release date managed to jump forward when everyone involved realized, you know what, stick a fork in this thing and let's get some players on it already. Consequently, the release date – which earlier saw jumps back from mid to late 2010, then further to mid-May 2011 – is now set for May 10. Hey, that's tomorrow (or maybe today, by the time you read this)! No more preview teasers, then – here's the launch trailer.
The new video details the game's utopia-gone-wrong backstory and contains plenty of glimpses of the strongly Parkour-influenced gameplay, with the art and visuals on show placing the title somewhere between Team Fortress 2 and Mirror's Edge. With the game's conflict between slum-dwellers versus elites detailed, the trailer's invitation to “choose your side” hardly needs stating twice... and by the time you've watched the thing, all factors will be in place for you to act on that decision.
But before you actually decide whether or not you should buy the game, we suggest you wait for GamesRadar’s review. Expect to see it posted later tonight at around 9:00 pm (Pacific Time).
