Check Out Brink's SMART System, Watch it Get Delayed
Written By
View author's profile

Chances are, the larger percentage of gamers out there won't have seen Splash Damage and Bethesda's Brink in action yet. Those that have seen it consist of the general gaming press at trade shows like E3 and GamesCom, and the general public at consumer shows like PAX and the Eurogamer Expo. So for everyone else, this nice exclusive video posted over at G4TV will give you a chance to see why everyone who has seen it is so impressed.

The clip gives you a nice indication as to the art style of the game in action, as well as showing you the SMART button in its glory. It's all going swimmingly until the end... when the caption reveals that Brink is now set for a fall 2010 release, and not a spring 2010 release as it was initially intended. Actually, maybe that's a good thing... Who am I kidding? All of next year is crowded... it doesn't matter when you release it.

Looks like Mirror's Edge meets...Team Fortress? Something along those lines, but I do somehow get the distinct Mirror's Edge feel. Sounds...interesting.

I agree with Battosai343, it reminds me of a mix between Mirrors Edge and Team Fortress too. Can't wait till this game gets released, really looking forward to it.

Bethesda does have experience in making large open world environments, for example Fallout 3 and Oblivion which makes me expect a large co-op focus, of say Borderlands. I liked both Fallout and Borderlands, but with the added TF2 and Mirrors Edge elements, this game is shaping up to be very unique and maybe a surprise hit of 2010.

Meh, I love Bethesda, but these FPS are getting more and more cliche and unoriginal.

Finally, now I see why theres some hype for this game, well deserved to imo. Can't wait to try this online.

I hate to see the delay, but alot of great games are releasing this upcoming spring already.

Man, I'm surprised how many people didn't know about this!

It's in my top 3 most wanted for next year, and given the quality on offer in 2010, that really is saying something. It just looks to have something a bit special, and the seamless single player to multiplayer aspect is a genuine innovation. Loving the grahpical style too (@#2 Killzone? Seriously? Erm... Have you actually played Killzone? Looks nothing like it to me).

One the one hand, I'm gutted it's been put back, but considering how wallet busting March was looking, I guess it's actually a bit of a relief, especially if they use the extra time to polish it to perfection...

This is a good thing. With Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Lost Planet 2, and Just Cause 2 all coming out in the first quarter, there'd be no way I could purchase it.

Now that it's been pushed back to fall, I can pick this up with Halo Reach. As long as they take the extra time to polish this to perfection, then I shall not lose a salty tear over this delay.

People from the UK shouldn't say "badass;" it just doesn't work.

Is it just me or is that head bob/weapon sway absolutely horrible?

When he runs normally it looks like he's jogging up and down on the spot but moving forward very slightly.

If you type brink smart system or something along those lines on youtube you'll find it.
