Back From... Brink Does Clans, Tourneys

Brink: a most curious beast indeed. I'm still not entirely sure what I make of it. While I wish it had done quite a few things a little differently, I'm heartened to see that it hasn't been left to die: a forthcoming update will better turn it to the not-so-tender mercies of community-centric play. Clans and tournaments will be the focus of the patch - the kind of stuff that perhaps should have been there in the first place, but hindsight is 20/20, as my Dad so helpfully observes several hundred times a year.

You'll be able to create a clan, recruit members, create some sort of no doubt nightmarishly ugly clan symbol, manage things via a dedicated profile page and, of course, wage war on other clans. They deserve it, the rotters.


There'll also be events, tourneys and the like you can sign your men up for (see, I can say 'men' without worrying about sounding sexist, 'cos Brink's player models are universally male, right?). Brink may have fizzled somewhat after launch, but Splash Damage's games do have a strong history of retaining sizeable online playerbases and perhaps, now, this will join the territorial enmity of its predecessors.

Exact-o-details here.
