Brink DLC Details and Stats Site Update

Update 5/29: The title update is live on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Original Post:Today we’ve got some exciting news to share about two big Brink updates in the works.

First up, the statistics site will be going live next Tuesday for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 players. PC players can look forward to it going up very soon. This site, located at brinkthegame.com, will be your hub for in-depth stats, including data on matches, players and the overall progress in the weekly Battle for the Ark. Check out the screenshot above for a sneak peek and dig up that VIP code as you’ll need it to register once the stats page is live.

On top of that, the Agents of Change DLC is just on the horizon, slated for release in June. The pack will bring new maps, abilities, character customization options and weapon attachments to Brink, while also raising the level cap to 24. Here’s a full list of the DLC content:

New Maps

  • Founders’ Tower – The revolution finally reaches the island’s iconic spire and takes the battle for the Ark to dizzying heights.
  • Labs – Venture into the depths of the Ark’s original research and development laboratories, a submerged high-tech facility so far untouched by the civil war.

New Player Abilities

  • UAV – This stealthy and lethal device allows Operatives to automatically mark nearby enemies on their radar. For more explosive fun, they can even take direct control of the UAV and detonate it near unsuspecting foes.
  • Napalm Grenade – Soldiers can use this new grenade to cover an area in a sea of deadly flames.
  • Pyro Mine – Engineers can plant these mines and leave enemies in the epicenter of a massive napalm explosion.
  • Field Regen Unit – Medics can deploy these units to increase the health regeneration of any nearby teammates.
  • Tactical Scanner – This universal ability allows players to reveal the active buffs of their opponents, allowing them to pick off enemies more strategically.

New Weapon Attachments

  • Bayonets – Gain the edge in melee combat and cause extra damage with these deadly blades.
  • Weapon Shields – Take cover from enemy fire and prevent headshot bonus damage behind riot-style shields.

New Character Outfits

  • The Sad Punk – Add a touch of Steampunk to your Resistance character.
  • The Limey – Bring order to the Ark with this outfit inspired by traditional European police.

In addition to these updates, we’re happy to let you know that the updates we described last week will be available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this weekend.

  1. What about fixing the online ffs? All of this sounds wonderful, but is utterly useless if you can’t play the game!

  2. As much as micro-transactions are terrorising gaming, Splash Damage should bring out more character packs/colour packs

    £1 per Character set (3-12 items)
    50p a Colour pack

  3. Finally Im excited about this new DLC. They have to continue to come out with new DLC to keep this game fresh. Great work splash damage!!!

  4. Developers developers developers developers; Listen closley to what I’m about 2 say – Team Deathmatch, Free for all and Domination now plzkthx

  5. hmmm yes also, splash damage will we ever see more game modes? and in new maps will there be unique objectives? anyway cant wait :D

  6. Well, I can safely return my copy of the game today! It’s like I paid someone 60$ to hold on to my 60$, interest incurred, and now I only get 20 something back.

  7. I’m guessing that these skills will be rank 5?

    Also, I hope to see a new update every month for this game. This is honestly the best game I’ve ever played and it seems like it gets better every day… Just wish heavies had more health so I would see more of them… :/

  8. @Wombat, I agree. Fortunately this pack is free!

    @technical support inquirers, this is information on a content patch that was originally going to cost money and it was already pre-made. They would not put required content such as linux servers and hardware support in a content patch.

  9. @Nate: Go play call of duty, halo, or gears if you want “modes”. This game never promised “modes”. This game will never have “modes”. The closest thing this game will ever have to “modes” is “stopwatch or objective”.

  10. Brink is one of the best FPS rite now, the SMART is awesome, the fact that ya can jump, slide, run and stil shoot a target with accuracy is a perfect cricle. I just hope the server list refresh dont disconnects you from internet, this happen to a lot of ppl and we already tried the CAFERATE stuff and the steam net settings and also the modem been old. Also the new maps must be more fair kuz there is a lot of maps which are too Resistance or Viceversa. Thanks for the new outfits and weapons these mus t go on and on Good job Splash DMG and Bethesda.

  11. @Tristed: Just because the game was never promised “modes” doesn’t mean it shouldn’t have them. I haven’t played Brink in nearly 2 weeks now because none of us (as in my friends and I) feel like doing the same objectives again. And I see how new maps could help, but why not a mindless deathmatch? Does this hurt the franchise? I don’t think so. Variety and options never ruined a game that I’m aware of.

    Truth is, a CTF mode would be great, deathmatch would great…stopwatch and objective is great, but should those be the only multiplayer options?

  12. new abilities eh? how bout raising that level cap so i can actually purchase them without starting a new character

  13. KICK ASS! This sounds fantastic! I cannot wait to see how all this craziness comes together! I just hope I can finish LA Noire before this comes out…because I doubt I’ll play much else besides Brink.

  14. Pure win, Splash Damage & Bethesda. Pure win. The only thing that’s left to look forward to in Brink now is the updates for the 360 and PS3, and then the next wave(s) of DLC. Thank you!

  15. is it true that you guys are going to be putting more xbox 360 achievments in the game? if so when will they be available?

  16. Support for my Merc Z Board would be great, other than that glad to see more maps on the horizon,
    Other than that, I havent liked a game this much since UT2K4

  17. Is this an 108kb download or will it split the playerbase somewhat? Also when will bots be gone from freeplay so matches don’t feel all the same but with a random 4 people in?

  18. I don’t have many grips about the game most of it will be fixed come patch time.
    Glad i bought a new copy worth it.

    But For the Customization, could we be able to make the color anything we wanted to? A white and purple resistance character would be crazy!!!!! (For me Anyways)

    Could that any color go towards the guns with it being a certain color. To make it truly unique?

    A couple more shotguns and machines guns would be sweet. but thanks for the Hard work you guys have made me forget all about the call of duty days!!!!

  19. why wont you, instead of making new things, try to fokus on the objektive here: split screen CO-OP for Brink! please think about it.

  20. Very nice amount of content, and for FREE! That’s the way to go, Splash Damage!

    But there’s one question I need to ask: will this DLC contain new achievements and trophies?

  21. Ahh man, I wanted some new game modes but atleast, new costomization add ons, new maps, new weapons, new abilities. All I know it’s going to be awesoooome!!!

  22. Why don’t you make it like more like COD BLACK OPS/KZ3 while you’re at it. You guys are listening to the whiners on the forums a little too much I’d say. Here’s a novel idea try sticking to your original principles, that you displayed going into making this game… instead of flip flopping like a fish on dry land. Next we’re gonna see chopper gunners and stealth suits. Way to bastardize your games identity Bethesda bravo, bravo.

  23. While this is cool, it would be better if you worked on adding Female characters to the game. While I’m not all that bothered what gender I play as, I am sure there are people out there that would (oooh, like, I don’t know, Female gamers?) and, to be honest, it would be nice to have the choice!

    Anyway.

    I like the look of this update, Bayonets and Pyro Mines sound awesome :D Hopefully my light character will have the ability to attach it to his SMG >:D Stabby stabby! Tactical Scanner seems like a waste of a skill point :/ That’s just me :P

  24. I agree with the female characters, even though I won’t play them. Believe it or not, some women actually play videogames.

    Still waiting on a tac-knife for my pistol. Sadness.

    The bayonet better not be OHko, because the knife on the pistol isn’t. I like it that way, cuz with a light character you can run around them in circles and stab them 3-4 times to kill them :D
