Today Splash Damage announced a new Brink update that brings clan support and tournament features.
Currently the game is nowhere to be found in the Steam stats page. The last entry on that list, Titan Quest IT, has 336 players. I assume the situation isn't much better on consoles.
I liked Brink. Most reviewers didn't. Some complained about teamwork, most notably one that wondered why should he fix a staircase and open a new path for his team. The game was also terribly buggy. It basically died in just a couple of weeks. The free-for-a-while DLC and free weekend didn't help.
I have no idea who could possibly be looking forward to the new update.
I believe this game can be saved only if it goes f2p and the developers add a shitload of customisation options. Make some available only for money - and customers that bought the game. The weapon and character customisation are incredible in the base game. The game is solid. But nobody plays, and since it's a multiplayer title it can't get new customers because people see it's dead.
What do you think? Can Brink be saved?
