Get Brink's 'Agents of Change' DLC now while it's free photo
Get Brink's 'Agents of Change' DLC now while it's free
by Jordan Devore

Love it or hate it, if you still have a copy of Brink, you might as well download the "Agents of Change" downloadable content which recently hit PlayStation Network, Xbox Live, and Steam. Why? Because it's free! But only for the first two weeks. After this initial period, it will be bumped up to $9.99.

"Agents of Change" adds the maps Founders' Tower and Labs; the UAV, Napalm Grenade, Pyro Mine, Field Regen Unit, and Tactical Scanner abilities; bayonets and shields; and the Sad Punk and Limey character outfits. The level cap has also been raised to 24 thanks to this add-on.

Sounds rather substantial for a free download.

[Thanks, Ezxhaton]

Brink 'Agents of Change' DLC now arrives August 3 photo
Brink 'Agents of Change' DLC now arrives August 3
by Jim Sterling

Brink's "Agents of Change" DLC was scheduled to arrive tomorrow, but it's been pushed back a little bit to August 3. Don't worry though, it'll still be free for the first two weeks. That's nice!

The content will be available simultaneously on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network and Steam. It'll include two new maps, five new abilities, two outfits and two weapon attachments. You'll also be able to level up five more times over the previous cap.

It's been a while since I gave Brink a spin, but it's still my most played online game of the year despite its flaws. Looking forward to hopping back in.
