Brink DLC Detailed

By Michelle Balsan, 5 years ago
A couple of weeks ago, Bethesda announced that free DLC, titled "Agents of Change", would be coming to its Splash Damage-developed title, Brink.

Earlier this week, several details about the DLC were revealed.

New Maps

Founders' Tower – The revolution finally reaches the island's iconic spire and takes the battle for the Ark to dizzying heights.
Labs – Venture into the depths of the Ark’s original research and development laboratories, a submerged high-tech facility so far untouched by the civil war.
New Player Abilities

UAV – This stealthy and lethal device allows Operatives to automatically mark nearby enemies on their radar. For more explosive fun, they can even take direct control of the UAV and detonate it near unsuspecting foes.
Napalm Grenade – Soldiers can use this new grenade to cover an area in a sea of deadly flames.
Pyro Mine – Engineers can plant these mines and leave enemies in the epicenter of a massive napalm explosion.
Field Regen Unit – Medics can deploy these units to increase the health regeneration of any nearby teammates.
Tactical Scanner – This universal ability allows players to reveal the active buffs of their opponents, allowing them to pick off enemies more strategically.
New Weapon Attachments

Bayonets – Gain the edge in melee combat and cause extra damage with these deadly blades.
Weapon Shields – Take cover from enemy fire and prevent headshot bonus damage behind riot-style shields.
New Character Outfits

The Sad Punk – Add a touch of Steampunk to your Resistance character.
The Limey – Bring order to the Ark with this outfit inspired by traditional European police lawmen.
Bethesda also noted that a patch to further address lag issues in Brink should arrive this weekend.

Finally, a new stats page will be launching on Tuesday at Brink's official site that will allow players to access "In-depth stats, including data on matches, players and the overall progress in the weekly "Battle for the Ark". In order to access this page, you will need to have your unique VIP access code which was included with purchases of the game.

No specific launch date was given for the DLC, nor was there information provided as to achievements. We'll be sure to update you with this news once we have it.
