Splash Damage is a developer on a mission with Brink, and it wants you to come along for the ride.
Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to dive straight into the game’s single-player mode with its vast customization skills, and start causing mayhem and destruction at will. The best part? You don’t have to go it alone.
Oh, sure, you be a lone-wolf running about the “ultra-realistic toon-style” game world fighting enemies and doing loads of crazy things – but sometimes you may feel the need for a wingman. Sometimes you may even feel the need to face-off with real people instead of AI, and that is where Brink has you covered. Whether it be co-op, or multiplayer, the game allows you seamlessly open it up on the fly so that you are instantly playing co-op, multiplayer, or going up against enemies controlled by other players.
During gamescom, VG247 was given the opportunity to play the game, which Keza described as a mix between Borderlands and Team Fortress 2 that was both adaptable and excellently balanced. Luckily, you won’t have to wait much longer to play it.
This is exactly what Splash Damage is aiming for, and studio boss Paul Wedgwood, who spoke to us during the Eurogamer Expo, seems very confident of the game’s success.

Chatting with Splash Damage CEO Paul Wedgwood is always a treat – even if it comes shortly after the disappointing news that Brink won’t see the light of day in 2010.
We sat down with the lord of all things multiplayer and shooty during last week’s QuakeCon, where we talked shop about why Brink held down its S.M.A.R.T. button and sprinted out of 2010, what form the game’s DLC might take, the difficulties of multiplatform development, putting the color back in shooters, how a truly cross-platform multiplayer game might work, and tons more. Seriously, if you crawled out of bed this morning and thought to yourself, “Gee, I sure want to hear Paul Wedgwood talk about everything ever today,” then you came to the right place.
