Brink has received a lot of mixed reviews. Although, one thing everyone seems to agree on is that multiplayer is laggy. Splash Damage and Bethesda have addressed the lag by limiting the amount of players in Campaign and Freeplay matches to 8 human players. They will still support 8v8 in a separate ‘Big Team’ playlist. Also, the first DLC (launching in June), will be free and is said to include ‘additional maps and new content’.
