  1. I love all of the packs, gonna end up getting them all since my friends don’t care about things like this, but my question is… What games are The Psycho and the Spec Ops packs based off of? I’m assuming Bethesda games, but I can’t figure out which ones.

  2. Oh they’re original ideas? That kinda makes me sad because I wanted to play the game the Psycho came from but at least I know now. Thank you for clearing that up.

  3. Any news when this will be out in Australia and New Zealand? I want the Fallout pack but I don’t know where I can pre order it from to get it…

  4. I’m pre-ordering from Amazon but i really want that Spec-ops MP7!!! I hope there is a way to get all the packs without pre-ordering multiple copies of Brink!!!

  5. I hate it when companies do this.

    Will there be a way for people to get all of these items on one account? The game isn’t out yet, do I want to play as a Rebel or not? How would I know? Maybe I pre-order through steam, get the Spec-ops kit, and then never use it because I play as a rebel.

    Seriously, all companies, STOP DOING THIS. Stop giving special items to different retailers that other people can’t obtain (especially when it is more than simply cosmetic). Or do what THQ did with the new Dawn of War and offer the special edition with all of them.

  6. Will there be any advantage given by one of those pack weapons ? Because I guess that the gun in the psycho pack is powerful enough to fight against other SMGs ? You see what I mean ?

  7. noooooooooooo I so badly want the fallout pack but I pre-ordered it through steam! is there any way for me to get my hands on the fallout pack!? (accept pre-ordering it again)

    “You can’t fool me, that’s not a ‘Hockler Machine Pistol’, it’s an MP7.

    I want.”

    Correct! but more specifically; that’s a Heckler & Koch MP7(machine pistol type 7). Hence “Hockler Machine Pistol”

    and yes, definitely want!

    doom is awesome too, but unique gun, scopes and badass mask makes th e trip to walmart worth it.

  9. I was lucky , I got to try this game at Pax West AND E3, And I can safely say it’s the best game I have EVER played, I’m not usually a FPS Fan, having COD and playing it rarely, barely catching onto the story, this game was gripping from the start, I played it for 2 hours and had so much fun, I’ve pre-ordered the Fallout pack from (UK) and Have been downloading all the trailers and even bought some Brink merchandise. I cant wait for it to be released! 10/10

  10. will thev pre-order bonuses be relaesed as DLC anytime after the launch? I seriously want most of these packs!

  11. Hey just wanted to know if the dlc is still available at amazon becuse i just went there and they told me that was over and done with so what would i have to do if i wanted the psycho dlc i love the way this game looks and would love to look like a bad ass when i get it the frist day it comes out thats all i wanted thanks for you time … cant wait for this sick ass shooter to come out =)

  12. Will the items in the Spec Ops pack only be useable for the security side? Or will you be able to equip them to the resistance side as well? Clarification would be nice.

  13. If anyone was concerned about the exclusive weapons, Bethesda announced that they are not planning to release them in the future, that they are pre-order only weapons.

  14. The psycho pack mentions, will that pre-order bonus apply to as well? Or are Canadians out of luck for the psycho pack?

  15. Its either going to be gamestop or walmart packs for me. those are the only 24 hour stores that will have the game ready at midnight. Probably gamestop…

  16. Awesome, I got the Psycho preorder pack at and only saw it after purchase: SCORE!
    Psycho and Special Ops seems the best with new weapons, skins are bullocks!

  17. Doom for the old school gamers, but man I want that the revolver and mp7 pistol.

    We all know how this stuff usually works.

    Weapons in preorders or limited editions are usually “early access” only, so I’d say there is a chance that everyone will be able to get them eventually.

  18. Ah, that blows. Of course Gamestop gets the Doom pre-order pack. Not to mention only two of the pre-order content comes with weapons? Dat’s dat bullspit.

  19. Well apparently amazon bait and switched all the PC pre-orders. I pre-ordered their PC version when the page for the PC version had the pycho pack, now only the console versions have the pycho pack and the page for the PC version doesn’t have anything. I can’t even cancel now because they already shipped it.

  20. Thanks for that mild heart attack Alex. I had literally just placed an order with Amazon to get the psycho pack when I read your post. I’d just like to say that I’ve looked on the pre-order details and they mention you needing a steam account, so obviously your whole bait & switch theory is incorrect. This was on Amazon UK however.

  21. Woo-o-huu! ^^ I first thought i didnt get any pre-order packs, even though i pre-ordered Brink from Steam, since i thought (or did), pre-order the game before Steam advertised “pre-order Brink now to get pre-order bonus” well.. now i know, that i did get the pre-order pack 🙂 And.. just.. wow.. I love the Sloani mask! 🙂 I didnt even know, it was from the pre-order pack! 😀 Man, am i glad 🙂 And second of all, i also like to use the tank vest (as seen in the Spec Ops picture) 😀 But damn, i have SO awesome feel right now, that i cant descript! But yea.. Now everything is clear to me 🙂
    Whoever is responsible for the Spec Ops Pack: i love you! Thank you so very much! 🙂
    If any of the game makers happen to ever read this (i bet not.. it could be better to send an email :D) i would like to see more masks like the Sloani, the Bug and the Eel 🙂
