Brink getting Steamworks, shows off specs


The fine folks at Splash Damage have revealed a few details about Brink, not the least of which is that the PC version will utilize Steamworks support. This provides voice chat, anti-cheating measures, friends support, cloud data, challenge leaderboards, and Steam achievements. Plus, auto-updates and easy downloads will be handled straight through the Steam interface. Happy day.

If you're wondering whether your PC can handle Brink, they've got you covered on that front as well. The team revealed the system requirements for the game today, so you can assure your personal rig is up to snuff before launch.

The Steamworks support is PC-only, but the game is also due on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The game was opposite-delayed yesterday, bringing it a week closer than before. It's now set to hit on May 10. Check out the specs list below.
