I really, REALLY hope things get done right this time. Brink had an incredible amount of potential that was squandered for essentially no reason.
Splash Damage working on Dirty Bomb with help from publishing partner Warchest; teaser trailer released; release date TBA.
The next project from Brink and Enemy Territory: Quake Wars developer Splash Damage has been revealed. This morning, the company announced PC shooter Dirty Bomb. The game's teaser trailer suggests the game will be set in a modern day London, England and feature lots of shooting.
The Dirty Bomb website encourages gamers to reserve a player name by registering at publishing partner Warchest's website. Additionally, Dirty Bomb's online services are powered by FireTeam, a company that specializes in matchmaking, transmedia connectivity, and more.
No release date or pricing information was announced for Dirty Bomb.
Dirty Bomb is the first game from London-based Splash Damage since 2011's Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC game Brink, which sold 2.5 million copies. For more on that game, check out GameSpot's review.
Brink was really bad compared to its hype ... oh this is gonna revolutionize FPS .... no.... no it did not ....
I said I had sworn off Splash after the massive disaster that Brink was... but having looked into their new websites (Fireteam and Warchest), I have to say I'm interested again.
Now is the time for them to prove that all the previous failures to support their games post release (ie ETQW and Brink) were a result of publisher complications. Now that it's all on them, I want to see them do it properly.
Just as well they're trying to institute their version of F2P because even though I like the look of the new direction, I'm not swayed enough yet to contemplate giving them any of my money.... yet.
When they can deliver something on par with the good ole days of Wolf ET, then the bad taste of having preordered Brink only to see it drop to bargain bin sale prices 2 months later on Steam... then and only then will the bad taste be washed out completely.
I liked Brink, i'm not sure why considering how much people disliked it. Maybe this time the Brink idea will be used properly for all to enjoy.
brink was a good idea, but was not executed well at all. i gave it a 4. hopefully they learned something.
With a name like that, I can't help but laugh. And considering how boring and bland Brink was, it's hard to get excited for this.
not what i was supposed to focus on in the trailer but if your going to feature well known landmarks atleast make the signs a bit more accurate why the hell is it telling you bromley is 10 miles away of all the places in that direction :P
when will they make a new wolfenstein enemy territory? and more importantly when will we get a new single player wolfenstein?
It doesn't say if it's 3rd or 1st person, I'd love if it was a 3rd person shooter, not enough of them around anymore because it's mostly 1st person. I'd love if it was similar to the Getaway.
"The game's teaser trailer suggests the game will be set in a modern day London, England and feature lots of shooting." MIND=BLOWN :O
Brink was awesome. It was a definite change compared to all this newer CoD multiplayer rehashs I see everywhere. People should at least give it an hour of playing before giving it the axe.
@Jarten I played it back in 2007, but it was Called Team Fortress 2 back then, for some reason I liked it a lot more then than I do now.
They made Brink oh my i really hated how bad that game was and i really loved Quake Wars online play it ashame it never really went anywhere so this new game i might skip.
I tought the guy on the picture is Strelock, and S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2 was going to be back in development. Then i read the headline and the article and now i know, this will be another classbased multyplayer FPS, that will die withing a month after its release.
@vasilakis141 damn why did S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2 had to die damn shame they should of at lest remastered wolfenstein enemy territory in HD.
Risky. PC gamers are so inundated with different shooters of all sorts, with some on the leading edge of innovative gameplay, that any generic shooter not in a major franchise will have little chance of receiving any attention, let alone succeed. Not to say Dirty Bomb will be a generic shooter, but a lot of shooting will no doubt be insufficient.
@OleanderX from the backlash of the last game they did, they should.
@eriktkire @OleanderX Well at least they are keeping it safe just to avoid another mess in their hands but if its a very awful F2P system like doing Pay 2 Win or over price packages now that's gonna build some problems
just like the their Ipad game too
Alot has change because of that one game haha even the European reviewers defended it!
anyway best of luck to them
