For those already free-running into the world of Brink, you may have noticed a few technical issues.Splash Damage & Bethesda are fully aware of the situation and are already well on the way to sort things out. To show their appreciation to the fans, they just updated their Blog.


We have been working on updates for Brink to address the lag issue that some people have reported they were experiencing.

In the meantime, we have made a configuration change for 360 users (which will be available to the PS3, once PSN is up) that alters the number of human players when matchmaking for “Campaign” and most ‘Freeplay’ modes to eight total human players. This new configuration will allow those connecting to and hosting matches (particularly those with lower upstream bandwidth)to more reliably find and connect to quality hosts via the match-making process – resulting in less lag and more fun. This change is being rolled out today and will be available worldwide.

For players who haven’t been experienced lag, we’ll still support 8v8 on all maps via a new ‘Big Teams’ configuration in Freeplay, and through custom settings in Private matches. There is no download required for this update and it will be available automatically the next time you log in to play Brink and launch either campaign or standard Freeplay matches. This should allow players new to the Ark as well as veterans to find quality matches suitable to their preferred play style.

We are also releasing an incremental update for PC players via Steam that addresses AI, GPU, and server issues. See the fullrelease noteson Steam. Many of these fixes are being included in the full update for the 360 and PS3 versions.

We would like to thank you for supportingBrinkand for your continued feedback. To show our appreciation for your support of Brink,we will be making the first DLC forBrinkavailable for free when it is released. This DLC is planned for June and will offer additional maps and new weapons for players. We’ll continue to provide announcements about the next title update, as well as the first DLC release as that information becomes available.

Like many of the Staff on Console Monster, Barrie likes playing games. Spanning the aeons of time, he has played games on various formats and tends to play games because they are fun and not just because a certain company makes them. He enjoys a good shooter but tends to focus around Team-based and objective based gameplay. Also has a unhealthy obsession with Loot Collecting games. So, if you can make a Team and objective based loot-whoring game, he will play it. Also, has a thing about Zombies
