New Brink patch on way: details revealed

The Brink video game finally made its way into stores across the world last week, but its launch didn’t quite go as smoothly as the developer Splash Damaged had hoped. In fact, shortly after the game was released, reports started flooding in from gamers who said they were experiencing lag issues.

As we mentioned in a previous article here, the developer quickly addressed the lag problem by temporarily halving the game’s player count. However, according to Stephany Nunneley over at, Splash Damage has now revealed details for a new Brink patch that’s on its way for both PC and console versions.

The developer says that it has now completed modifications to improve network performance on the Xbox 360, and should be rolling them out in the update next week. They have also fixed an isolated freezing issue that was reported by several German players, who should no longer experience the said problem.

As for the PC version, Splash Damage says that it has now identified the cause of the sound dropping out in specific maps while playing networked games for a long amount of time. PC gamers should also find that the graphical performance has been improved, especially when they are using Ambient Occlusion.
