Over on G4 today, Bethesda have revealed the first in-game footage from Brink - the id Tech 4 powered first person shooter currently in the works at Splash Damage (Enemy Territory Quake Wars).
The footage is actually just a small snippet of the full preview that press were shown back at the E3 Expo earlier this year, but it does offer a good demonstration of the game's S.M.A.R.T. movement system in action.
Unfortunately, the video closes with the bad news that the release target window is now U.S. Fall 2010 (Australian Spring), six months later than its previously pegged U.S. Spring 2010 release date.
A couple of other notes on the video come from a post by Creative Director Richard Ham on the game's official forums who confirms that the footage is indeed from the E3 demo of Brink and that (in-case you were worried) issues such as the "crazy pistol bob" and "ugly" shadows have since been addressed. He also cautions to not "judge that video as final movement speeds", since the E3 demo used a combination of different player classes in order to show off a wider range of features.
Brink is in the works for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
