Earlier this week, we shared the public invite for our Brink event at PAX East (tonight at 8 pm!). When we posted it, we received questions from folks wondering about that funky-looking barcode (also in the image above). That’s a QR code, and with it, smartphone users can access our PAX East mini-site for Brink. The page features wallpapers, screenshots, videos, and an opportunity to get a $5 gift card with your pre-order for Brink at Best Buy.
To access the page, snap a pic of the QR code with your smartphone and load a QR code app. If you’re at a desktop computer, you can get more details here.
Going to be in Boston on Friday night? Join us at the Black Falcon Terminal — conveniently located nearby the PAX East Boston Convention Center — for an opportunity to get your hands on Brink.
We’ll have three full 8-on-8 setups running the game in a massive terminal on the waterfront. Food, beverages, music and entertainment are all on us. Attendees will also have the chance to score some sweet swag, including a custom Brink facemask (pictured above). Space is limited, so be sure to get there early if you want to guarantee yourself playtime and giveaways.
Event is first come, first serve. See you there!
Do you like apples?
This weekend we’re off to Boston, where we’ll be feelin’ the good vibrations at PAX East. At our booth, you’ll have a chance to go hands on with both Hunted and Brink — with developers from inXile and Splash Damage on hand to answer your questions. For Hunted, you’ll be able to play the game cooperatively on a level that’s never been shown to the public. Meanwhile, those playing Brink will have an opportunity to play a new level, Security Tower, which sees desperate Resistance fighters attempting to break one of their own out of the Security’s main headquarters on the Ark.
After playing the games, you’ll leave the booth feeling cooler than Matt Damon — as you’ll be Departeding with t-shirts for both games.
On Friday night, we can’t promise you Steven Tyler, but you’ll feel like a rock star if you attend our Brink’d community event (8-11 PM) at the Black Falcon Terminal. Just a Brady-to-Moss toss away from the Boston Convention Center, on hand we’ll have multiple 16-player setups with developers from Splash Damage playing against members of the community. We’ll also be handing out some wicked cool giveaways. Space is limited, so get there early!
And while it’s too early to see home runs over Fenway’s Green Monster, you’ll see huge mutants in our special presentations for RAGE (Friday and Saturday at 1:30 PM in the Wyvern Theatre) being presented by id Software’s Jason Kim and Matt Hooper. Attendees of the event will receive a limited “Wingstick” t-shirt and have a chance ask questions following the presentation.
How do ya’ like them apples?!?
