Wedgwood: Brink will make multiplayer with strangers fun

Splash Damage co-founder Paul Wedgwood has said Brink aims to be more fun than other multiplayer shooters, which apparently consist of being shot, sexually assaulted, and verbally abused.

“At present, the experience of playing FPS games online consists of being head shot five times, tea bagged five times and someone comes over the VOIP service and makes some racist comment,” Wedgwood told Spong.

“This is not how it should be; we are trying to create that buzz of playing cooperatively with other people who are strangers.”

Wedgwood said Brink’s automatic mission generating feature – which takes into account teammates actions and class balance, and awards XP generously to those who pursue goals – is Splash Damage’s solution.

“The overall aim of Brink is to make it fun to play multiplayer FPS games with each other,” he explained.

Brink is due for release on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in May.
