Brink, one of the most anticipated games of 2011 is finally here and shooter fans have been blasting their way through the Ark since its release!
Splash Damage's new game, developed in conjunction with
Bethesda, is a game of future war. The immersive first-person
shooter that blends single-player, co-op, and multiplayer gameplay
into one seamless experience, offering a compelling mix of dynamic
battlefields, extensive customization options, and an innovative
It centres on the Ark, a model for sustainable living and man-made
floating city that became over inhabited when a global
environmental crisis struck the world. Sea levels rose and
thousands flocked to the Ark as a last hope of survival, but it has
since lost contact with what remained of the mainland and now
exists in total isolation. As the Ark's supposedly renewable
resources dwindle, the balance of power threatens to unravel and as
tensions grow Security and Resistance forces lock in a heated
battle for control.
"Fight for your side. Fight for your future. Fight For your life.
The Revolution begins. Whose side are you on?"
The Mill Gaming team worked closely with game developer Splash
Damage to bring soul and character to Brink. The team
developed, shot and created an epic five minutes of cinematics for
Brink's in-game movies, and was directed by one of our own, Russell
Along with environments from the game world, our 3D animation team
were asked to developed two new main characters, Mo-Cap the action
and render everything to the expected high visual-bar - all to help
draw the player into this immersive and stylish new game.
Russell explains "Brink has a very distinctive visual style so it
was really important that we adhered closely to the look and feel
of this predefined world. At the start of the project Splash Damage
provided us with highly detailed character profiles and concept art
for the two faction leaders. The challenge was to then tell as much
of this back-story and detail as possible into a series of
sixty-second cinematic sequences without things ever feeling
cluttered or hurried."
Brink is now available across North America and Europe for the
Xbox 360® video game entertainment system from Microsoft,
PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and Games for Windows.
