As the official Brink launch trailer begins to make the rounds, Bethesda says the PlayStation 3 version of the game will release on schedule regardless of the state of the PlayStation Network.
There’s not much new to see in the launch trailer for Brink, Bethesda’s team-based shooter about the battle for a crumbling utopia known as the Ark. It’s fast-paced gunplay, parkour-style moves and a very strong Team Fortress 2 vibe with a dash of Mirror’s Edge, perhaps not the most original idea in the world but undeniably sexy.
Brink will feature a single-player component but the focus is clearly on multiplayer, which naturally leads to questions about the PlayStation 3 version of the game. The PlayStation Network remains down thanks to a mid-April attack by hackers and without PSN, online play is simply not an option. Nonetheless, Bethesda confirmed with Eurogamer today that the game is going out on schedule no matter what the Sony situation. “We’re still going ahead with launch this week,” a rep said.
Brink comes out on May 10 – yes, that’s tomorrow – for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
