Brink News: PC Update, DLC in the Works

Embattled squad shooter Brink will get an update today, though whether it will succeed in fixing the game‘s many problems is anyone’s guess. The patch notes are below.

Plagued by lag since the outset, the game now faces up an uphill battle to keep users interested. It is with that in mind, no doubt, that Splash damage is currently preparing a DLC pack for the game, which is being vetted by Microsoft and Sony in preparation for its official release.
