Brink Release Date Moved Up

Bethesda Softworks has announced today that it has finished wrapping up their production of the highly anticipated FPS title Brink, a week ahead of schedule. The game will now first be available for purchase in North America on May 10th instead of May 17th, and in Europe on May 13th instead of May 20th.

Pete Hines, VP of PR and Marketing for Bethesda Softworks has said

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. 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.

Blending single-player, co-op, and multiplayer action into one seamless experience, Brink features dynamic battlefields, extensive customization options, and an innovative control system. I was already looking forward to playing Brink and the release date change has me even more excited. Bethesda rarely disappoints and judging by everything we’ve seen so far, Brink is set to be one of the top shooters this year.
