It's no secret that Brink had a less-than-smooth launch, regardless of platform. Obviously some versions suffered more than others, but whether you're talking Xbox 360, PS3, or PC, the game needed some post-launch sprucing up.
Well, patches have been released across the board, implementing both performance and gameplay improvements. To show their appreciation for the community's support, Bethesda and Splash Damage have also announced that the first Brink downloadable content will be free.
"We would like to thank you for supporting Brink and for your continued feedback," the official Splash Damage blog reads. "To show our appreciation for your support of Brink, we will be making the first DLC for Brink available for free when it is released."
Based on that, the DLC was likely planned as paid content, but now whatever price tag was originally set has been yanked. The new content will be out in June if all goes according to plan, and introduces new maps and other content. More announcements and DLC information will be released soon.
