The Brink Diaries; Hyper Realism and the move away from the photo-real

The Brink Diaries; Hyper Realism and the move away from the photo-real

Brink’s exaggerated art style is a breath of fresh air in an environment where every developer appears to be striving for impeccable realism. Developers Splash Damage accentuate body parts in a way that reveals something about the characters in the game, and what you get from this is big guys with huge chins or massive hands. Yes, it can be comical, but this approach allows Brink to stand out in a way that few games can. It also looks very cool.

The Brink Diaries; classes, upgrades and body types explained

Splash Damage love class-based gameplay, and with Brink they’re looking to build on the great class-based experiences that they’ve offered in the past with Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory and Enemy Territory: Quake Wars.

Brink has your typical multiplayer classes: soldier, medic, engineer and operative; each offers different tactical advantages. It also has three body types: skinny, medium and heavy. Once again, each has their advantages and disadvantages. There are also 50 abilities (gained as you level up) to choose from.

With all this going on, the player has an incredible number of options at their disposal, so it’s unlikely you’ll ever see the same game twice. We’re speaking to Richard Ham, Splash Damage’s creative director, who is describing the many interesting things that they are doing with Brink’s classes, body types and abilities.

The Brink Diaries; ‘We view Brink as having the opportunity to convert single-player gamers into online’ gamers

In last week’s Brink diary, Richard Ham explained how Splash Damage are catering for its hardcore audience, and, in another diary, he explained how they are trying to bridge the gap between single-player and multi-player. In theory, this shouldn’t work because a single-player game is a completely different experience from that of a multi-player game; they each require different skills. In addition to this, the multi-player arena is an intense and often hostile environment, so it’s not a great place to learn how to play properly.

The Brink Diaries; doing it for the hardcore

Splash Damage have added many features to Brink that will make the game accessible to the softcore player: VOIP is automatically turned off , there are game balancing systems, and even the much talked about SMART (smooth movement across random terrain) button prevents the gamer from getting frustrated.

As good as these are for the novice, they aren’t music to the ears of the seasoned online pro who doesn’t want their hand being held. The hardcore gamer wants friendly fire turned on, and they want to be able to communicate with their team mates, amongst other things.

The Brink Diaries; bridging the gap between single-player, co-op and multi-player

Brink is one of the most exciting and ambitious first-person shooters on the horizon, on any platform. Splash Damage have a track record of making first-rate multi-player FPSs (Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars) and with Brink they’re looking to take the genre further than anyone else.

One area where Splash Damage are pushing innovation, is in the way which they are looking to blend the single-player, co-op and multi-player experience, by allowing players to seamlessly jump from public to private matches.

PS3 Attitude caught up with Richard “Rahdo” Ham (Creative Director) and Edward ‘BongoBoy’ Stern (Lead Writer) at the Eurogamer Expo, and we discussed, at length, this aspect of Brink.

Bulletstorm and Killzone 3 kick-start another strong year for first-person shooters

The first-person shooter genre is one of the most dominant of this generation. The success of Call of Duty alone is staggering. Back in late December, Activision announced that Black Ops had surpassed $1bn in sales and that over 600m hours had been logged playing the game. The game is still topping the charts today. Call of Duty isn’t the only franchise flying the flag for first-person shooters either; there is also much fanfare for Killzone, Battlefield, Medal of Honor and Resistance, to name just a few of the big hitters.
