"Irrespective" is Paul Wedgewood's favourite word, and he says it for quadbillionth time in today's Brink Developer Diary. But irrespective of that fact, today's video focuses on the team's goals to blur the lines between single-player, co-op and competitive multiplayer gaming with Brink.

It's still not entirely clear (and hasn't been clear in any of our hands-on yet, either), just how they plan on combining these elements in a compelling way that doesn't seem like one has been tacked on to the other, but their confidence speaks volumes, and having someone like Richard Ham, who worked on Fable and Fable 2, is a pretty good place to start.

If this is just bots that get replaced by real players, then that would be f*****g lame.

Did we play the same game? Imo it's crystal clear how they're attempting to bring the narrative into the multiplayer component to make it more compelling when you're playing offline against bots. Was the main point of my E3 hands on (sorry about the character encoding errors, side-effect of a recent site change that will hopefuly be remedied soon).

The real question is just how well is it going to be executed? Well enough to compete with the narrative of a traditional singleplayer fps?

Also, I wouldn't exactly call it "the end of genre" (as they elude to in the dev diary's title), but it's definitely a pretty adventurous evolution.

I love the amount of character customization they have here, but I don't like the artistic style. Hard to be excited for this one.

I like both the art style and the customisation. Just wish it wasn't going to be several more months until it comes out. I want it now :(

I can just imagine playing the "single player" mode where it's you vs an entire clan comprised of the best people in the game using vent/ts.
