Brink PC system requirements uncovered, Steamworks support announced

Written by: / / No Comments

Bethesda Softworks has released the official PC system requirements for Brink, that mighty-looking first-person shooter from Splash Damage that hopes to deliver a revolution in the way you play by mixing fluid movement capabilities, opportunities for teamwork and a hybrid singleplayer/multiplayer experience together, all colliding in fresh new play spaces, customisation options and visceral gunplay.

In order to run all of this cool stuff, you’ll need a half-decent gaming PC, and with the release of the required system specifications you can find out if you’ll be able to play Brink at good clip when it releases on May 10th (in North America) and May 13th (everywhere else).

Have at it:

Minimum Specs

  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz or equivalent
  • Memory: 2GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA 8800GS / AMD Radeon HD 2900 Pro or equivalent
  • OS: Windows XP(SP3)/Vista/Windows 7
  • Hard Drive: 8GB of free space

Recommended Specs

  • Processor Intel Quad Core i5
  • Memory: 3GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 / ATI Radeon™ HD 5850
    OS: Windows XP(SP3)/Vista/Windows 7
  • Hard Drive: 8GB of free space

Also announced was the inclusion of Valve’s Steamworks backend (:) that will give players access to the following features of the Steam distribution network:

  • Steam Achievements
  • VOIP (in addition to the already existing in-game chat)
  • Leaderboards
  • VAC (Valve Anti Cheat)
  • Dedicated Servers
  • Friends Support
  • Steam Cloud (for save data)

Brink really is looking ultimate, but don’t take our word for it – rifle through El33tonline’s previous looks at the game for healthy batches of screenshots, gameplay videos and extra information.
