Brink goes free-to-play on PC via Steam

Brink, a first-person shooter published by Bethesda in 2011, is now free-to-play.

Speaking with IGN, Bethesda’s Pete Hines detailed the change from a $.99 game to one that’s free-to-play.

“Todd Vaughn, our VP of Development, and I had talked about it and sort of kicked around this idea,” Hines said. “Last year I think we had reduced it to like 99 cents [during a sale], and we were like ‘why don’t we just make it free? Like, why not?’

“Just make it free and let people download it, and maybe they’ll buy the DLC and maybe they won’t, but let’s just try it.” Hines continued by saying “The game has been out for forever, how much money are we really making off a 99 cents [sale]?”

You can grab the free-to-play title on PC via Steam right now.
