Brink will be out tomorrow, May 10, and seeing as how Bethesda has been releasing trailers on a daily basis for the past week, we were expecting one today. Yes, we got it. Bet you thought they forgot about the quintessential launch trailer, the most badass montage of gameplay for any title. Oh, and good news! You know when launch trailers flashes "9 out of 10" or random quotes from previews/reviews every few seconds? This one doesn't do that, so your suspension of belief may go unshattered for these few minutes.
The backstory, if you weren't aware, revolves around the Ark, a city that was built with the idea of self-sustainability in mind. Unfortunately, it didn't account for the influx of residents -- a whopping 50,000 individuals pushing its maximum capacity of 5,000. Eventually, this technological utopia degenerated into an absolute mess, and the Resistance popped up to retake control and distribute resources as they deem appropriate. In retaliation, the leaders of the Ark built their own heavily armed security forces, and an urban war broke out.
Automatic weapons, parkour, and slick fashion sense. Yep, that's Brink.
