Brink: New trailer brings cool customisation, sneaky spies, insanely handsome beards

Brink, the new team shooter from Enemy Territory dev Splash Damage, is looking better and better all the time. In fact with its insanely athletic, parkour-driven tactical shooting and stylishly cartoony visuals, it now essentially looks like the result of a highly illegal yet highly successful experimental gene splicing project using Team Fortress 2 and Mirror's Edge.

Want proof of this heady claim? Then check out this new trailer, which details Brink's stupidly extensive character customisation options, the complexities of its class-based combat (including some very TF2/Enemy Territory disguise and conquer infiltration) and as promised above, some Captain Price-rivalling facial hair.

Also, we have details of the UK pre-order bonuses. Ever wanted a Doom tattoo, but without the embarrassment of explaining it to the grandkids? Then now is your time.

Pre-order from Game or Gamesstation and you'll a pack of special Doom and Spec Ops gubbins to customise your character with, including body tattoos, t-shirts, hats and weapon skins. Fancy some Fallout-themed stuff instead? Then go to They'll give you Vault 101 and Vault Boy themed tattoos, weapon skins and clothing. And if you want plain want to look like a scary assassin-bastard, pre-order at Amazon. You'll get the Psycho Pack, consisting of the Caesar Revolver (an exclusive new weapon), a "terrifying" face mask, new weapon silencers and a "Lost Soul" tattoo.

So, Brink then. Appetite whetted for it?

    It kind of looks like a mix between Borderlands and Team Fortress 2... Hmm... Sounds awesome, still.

    @AGENTJORRRG -agreed, the single player sucks so much it pains me to play. multyplayer is ok but not a 10

    If customization was "stupidly extensive" then you could play as a woman. I did not see any women.
  • AGENTJORRRG - March 15, 2011 9:51 p.m.

    What the hell are you gonna do when this turns out to be better than Bulletstorm? You gave that a 10 for some inexplicable reason, and it was no where near as good as this looks to be.
  • Spybreak8 - March 15, 2011 9:29 p.m.

    It looks like a quality team is creating a quality game. ^^
  • Markstone - March 15, 2011 7:14 p.m.

    Looks awesome, absolutely can not wait!
  • Manguy17 - March 15, 2011 5:36 p.m.

    although id like the fallout stuff, Game gives more overall, and in the long run i will probably use the spec ops stuff more.

  • Sharkbot - March 15, 2011 5:04 p.m.

    This game looks so bomb, pretty much sold on this.
  • MrWindowPayne - March 15, 2011 4:03 p.m.

    Is that Psycho pack on Amazon UK? I can only find it on The US site.
  • ChrisCultista - March 15, 2011 3:42 p.m.

    Holy crap I want!
  • jackthemenace - March 15, 2011 3:30 p.m.

    AWESOME! Loved TF2, And the level of customisation looks amazing as well. It actually seems like the perfect multiplayer game.
  • EnragedTortoise1 - March 15, 2011 3:29 p.m.

    Looks awesome, can't wait. Sadly, it comes out scarily close to Infamous 2... :(
  • JMAN1156 - March 15, 2011 3:08 p.m.

    not enough parkour in this vid, also shooting mechanics look slugish/not very good. We'll see how good it is when it comes out.
  • Luc1ferRis1ng - March 15, 2011 2:38 p.m.

    Ok yeah i want it! Looks awesome!
  • blasThe - March 15, 2011 2:36 p.m.

    reminds me of TF2 but a bit more serious -the customisation looks great!
