Brink Patch Next Week

The Bethesda Blog has word on plans to patch the Windows and console editions of Brink, the recently released first-person shooter from Splash Damage. Here's word on highlights of the PC patch that's expected early next week:

Weve identified the cause of sound dropping out on certain maps when playing networked games for a prolonged amount of time. This will no longer occur.

Graphical performance has been improved, especially when using Ambient Occlusion. Weve worked closely with both AMD and NVIDIA, and you should see performance and stability improvements in future driver revisions from both parties.

The server browser is tweaked in this update, as well; among other things, a new filter allows you to display only servers with a certain number of players on them, and full servers will no longer be filtered out completely.

There are some smaller fixes for minor issues including your characters voice occasionally resetting when deleting another character, and a memory leak when alt-tabbing out of the game.

Finally, the dedicated server is set to get an update at the same time as the main game, which will result in improved CPU performance. Weve protected certain cvars that previously allowed server admins to accidentally break objectives involving NPCs.

Prolonged amount of time my ass! I've had sound cut out on the first map I play on within just a few minutes. I ran into the invisible player problem last night too. That was fucking weird. I didn't even know that was an issue until I started seeing muzzle flashes appear in mid-air.

This game is fun and has a lot of potential, but this patch needs to be the first of at least several to fix all the issues and hopefully differentiate and balance the weapons a bit more. They need to get the damn VOIP working too!
