Bethesda releases new Brink trailer, “A Chorus of Guns”

bethesda releases new brink trailera chorus of guns founders towerWhen people hear of a project being delayed, rarely is cheering and handing out high fives considered to be the correct move. If a movie is delayed, that typically means that somewhere along the way there was a catastrophic failure and whole sections need to be reshot, or the computer effects are well behind schedule, the star actor broke into someone’s house while on a drug fueled frenzy and caught a quick nap in the wrong bed, whatever. When it comes to video games though, a delay can be a very good thing.

Sure, the odd delay in a game might mean that there is a serious flaw in the game, or it could mean that the game’s director has grown a somewhat unhealthy attachment to the title and refuses to let it go without a fight (looking at you, Gran Turismo 5). But typically it means that the publisher is willing to wait for a product that it thinks has the potential to really shine, and that seems to be the case with Brink.

Back at E3 2010, Brink was proudly being displayed by Bethesda, and the title held its own in a booth that included the yet to be released Fallout: New Vegas, and an in-depth look at id’s newest game, Rage. The title had already received one delay, and a new late 2010 release date was issued. As that date neared, the date was pushed back once again to Spring 2011. No exact release date has been given. But that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Bethesda (and its parent company ZeniMax) has earned exceedingly high praise from developers including id, who credit the publisher on their passion for producing good games, not just quickly released games.

Brink is a first-person shooter set in a future where the Earth’s resources have disappeared along with most of its land mass. One major city remains, the Ark, a self-sustaining utopia that can sustain 5,000 people indefinitely. Unfortunately the total number of inhabitants is closer to 50,000. As the resources become increasingly rare, the security forces controlling the Ark and the resistance forces are on the brink  of civil war (hence the name).

Below is a trailer showing off a handful of the weapons available, as well as the numerous customization options. The game may be delayed, but the additional time looks like it is being well spent. Look for Brink on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 later this Spring.
