With Brink now a mere four weeks away, we've got a few new bits of information to share about the PC version today. First up, we can confirm that Brink will be making full use of Valve's Steamworks framework, which will provide a host of useful things for PC players, including the following:

 

  • Voice Chat
  • Valve Anti Cheat
  • Friends support (including invites and joining sessions in progress)
  • Steam Cloud (for save data)
  • Challenge Leaderboards
  • Steam Achievements

This also means that you'll be able to plug your product key straight into Steam and download Brink no matter where you are in the world - no disc required. Of course, you'll also be getting any new game updates automatically upon signing into your account, and you'll have access to things like the Steam Community.

 

But wait, there's more! We've had a lot of questions about the system requirements for the game in recent weeks and we've got those for you today, as well. Here goes:

 

Minimum Specs

  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz or equivalent
  • Memory: 2GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA 8800GS / ATI Radeon HD 2900 Pro or equivalent
  • OS: Windows XP (SP3)/Vista/Windows 7
  • Hard Drive: 8GB of free space

Recommended Specs

  • Memory: 3GB RAM

What is the Brink Standalone Dedicated Server?

The Brink Standalone Dedicated Server allows anyone to run multiplayer servers for the PC version of Brink. As the server is standalone, it does not require a full version of Brink to be installed and is completely free.

 

Where will I be able to get the Brink Standalone Dedicated Server?

The Brink Standalone Dedicated Server will be available for download via Steam prior to release. Once the server is available, you can simply browse to the Tools tab in your Steam client and grab it from there.

 

Will I be able to run several instances of the Brink Standalone Dedicated Server on a single machine?

Yes. The Brink Standalone Dedicated Server comes with several premade bat files that automatically define different ports for each instance. It's also possible for you to set your own, custom ports.

 

In terms of available game options, how customizable will the Brink Standalone Dedicated Server be?

The Brink Standalone Dedicated Server includes several different game configuration files covering all of the regular game modes, including campaign, stopwatch, objective, and co-op challenges. In addition, there are a variety of server-side commands available that allow you to further customize your server, including team sizes, time limits and overtime, warm-up rules, friendly fire, voice chat, availability of Command Post buffs, rank restrictions, number of bots, and password.

 

I represent a Game Server Provider. How can my company offer servers for Brink?

Easy! Once the Standalone Dedicated Server is available on Steam, you'll be able to start getting Brink game servers up for your customers. We're currently aiming to have the server files available before release so you'll be all set when the game comes out.

Glad to see another dev that isn't jumping on the EA / CoD bandwagon for no public server files.

Will you show people their rank and status online like Bungie has done with Bungie.net?

What's this game like?

 

I'm reading mixed reviews from different places, some say it relies heavily on teamwork.

I'm so undecided about this game, few in my clan have it and have experienced various issues but on the flip side I do like the idea of something more team based rather then l33t lonewolf sniper games. If anyones playing give your honest thoughts please so I can make up my mind lol.

The objective style gaming is pretty neat where you can do many things to help out your team, there were a lot of bugs last time I played, audio dropped out on multiple maps for everyone.

 

People keep telling me that it's heavy teamwork orientated and I keep scratching my head in confusion because yes there are objectives that everyone can work towards and you can set yourself to escort a teammate who has to go blow this thing up and get bonuses for doing so but I don't see anybody actually talking to each other, or using communication.

 

I kind of compare it to a world where zombies found out how to use teamwork because that what it feels like to me, nothing in the way you'll find teamwork in a good BF game but eh. I bought it and its ok I guess but that's my opinion. Some people do love it though.

Thanks, kind of like BC2 then when that first came out.

 

Everyone wanted to be a wookie and snipe from the back of the map, who needs to complete objectives we got a team full of wookies ;)

Teamwork is must in this game and if you get solo players in your team, it will piss of you. Ammo/Health depends on your team because you will be low on it pretty often so team work is must. Basically you will win the map if you play in team.

 

I haven't played the game much to give my opinion but it's more likely when BF3 comes out this will remain on shelf. Sometimes I feel I am playing some new version of TF2...or probably it's just me.

Really enjoying this game so far. Big fan of Splash Damage's previous work - this is definitely a good game. Newest patch gave me much improved performance - hopefully they will fix the rest of it soon.

Played for few hours during weekend. I really like the game play idea and I am enjoying it. Only 1 major issue. On couple of maps, I loose sound for whole map. I would suggest to buy one when it comes in deal of 35$ or less. It's worth a try.

 

I hope next patch would fix the sound issues.
