Brink To Get Clan and Tournament SupportAndrew Gaskill

Hey guys, remember Brink?  I sure do.  It's a heck of a squad shooter, when it's working properly.  It's been six months since the game's release and most of the bugs have been ironed out.  Splash Damage is moving forward with more multiplayer support.  A new title update will include clans, tournaments, and a global rankings ladder.  Most of these added features apply to the multiplayer versus mode, but I'm sure you and your buddies could form a clan and still play co-op matches.

This weekend's real-world headlines have been pounding the buzzword "compromise" into the skulls of hapless newswatchers. But what does it really mean to compromise? For Splash Damage, it means finding the right balance of story experience and gameplay experience in what many have deemed an overly ambitious blend - the quasi-campaign we call Brink.

The first DLC for Brink is expected to be out early this July.  The Agents of Change pack will have two new stages, a new ability for each class, two new weapon attachments, and two new outfits so you can play dress up with your friends.  You can see them all detailed here.  The new abilities may look familiar to anyone who hit the level cap.  They pop up when you hit level 20, then disappear.  At least they used to, this may have been patched away by now.  I'll finally get to use those Napalm Grenades I unlocked back in May!
