In an amazing departure from the norm, the release date of Brink has changed to be earlier than originally announced - we can now expect to see it in Australia on May 12th instead of May 19th:
Bethesda Softworks, a ZeniMax Media company, today announced that its acclaimed first-person shooter, Brink, will be available one week EARLIER than originally scheduled.
"Production wrapped on Brink earlier than we planned and we didn't see any reason to keep gamers from getting their hands on this highly anticipated game as soon as it was ready," said Pete Hines, VP of PR and Marketing for Bethesda Softworks. "It's apparent from the tremendous reaction so far that people are eager to jump online and play, and if we can make that happen earlier - we're going to."
A nice change of events. Our Brink game page
has more information about this shooter. There's a lot of people waiting to see if they can bring back classic PC first person shooter action with this title - I've just asked Bethesda if there's plans for a demo or multiplayer beta, so will let you know if I hear anything interesting back.
