Now look at John — he’s got a new 55 inch LED TV (3D-ready, no less), a new game console, and a surround sound setup. And he’s smiling too.

Brink Contest: SMART People Can Win One of 4 Dozen Stylish Posters

Unlike the resource-strapped Ark, we have a lot of spare materials laying around at Bethesda — like stacks and stacks of incredibly slick Brink posters. And unlike the segregated Security and Resistance factions, we’re willing to share.

So here’s the deal: we’re giving away 8 of each of the above posters, for a total of 48 tubes mailed to the doors of Brink fans. All you need to do for a chance to win is enter the contest on either Facebook or Twitter (or both).

Those familiar with our Fallout: New Vegas poster contest — which we’ll have the results of shortly — will know what to do on Twitter. Simply re-tweet the official contest announcement on @BrinkGame for a chance to win 30 of the posters.

On Facebook, we’re giving you more of a preference. We’ll be posting one new poster image per day over the next six days. Just go to Facebook.com/BrinktheGame and “Like” one of the six poster images to be entered to win that poster. Of course, if you like them all, you’ll certainly have a better chance to win.

Click through for the official contest rules. Good luck!
