Brink DLC: Agents of Change is Out Now

For those of you who have stuck by this year class-based shooter Brink despite it's shortcomings,  here is some welcome news. As the title reads, the Agents of Change DLC is out now and ready to download at your leisure for $0.00 [read: free]. The '$0.00 [read: free]' part comes with a catch, however, as it is only so for the next two weeks. Then you'll have to pay money for it. And we all know how much you love doing that.

Agents of Change contains two all-new environments, five new player abilities, two new outfits, and two new weapon attachments. Now heres the previous sentence in dot-point form:

New Maps
Founders’ Tower – The revolution finally reaches the island’s iconic spire and takes the battle for the Ark to dizzying heights.
Labs – Venture into the depths of the Ark’s original research and development laboratories, a submerged high-tech facility so far untouched by the civil war.
 New Player Abilities
UAV – This stealthy and lethal device allows Operatives to automatically mark nearby enemies on their radar. For more explosive fun, they can even take direct control of the UAV and detonate it near unsuspecting foes.
Napalm Grenade – Soldiers can use this new grenade to cover an area in a sea of deadly flames.
Pyro Mine – Engineers can plant these mines and leave enemies in the epicenter of a massive napalm explosion.
Field Regen Unit – Medics can deploy these units to increase the health regeneration of any nearby teammates.
Tactical Scanner – This universal ability allows players to reveal the active buffs of their opponents, allowing them to pick off enemies more strategically.
 New Weapon Attachments
Bayonets – Gain the edge in melee combat and cause extra damage with these deadly blades.
Weapon Shields – Take cover from enemy fire and prevent headshot bonus damage behind riot-style shields.
 New Character Outfits
The Sad Punk – Add a touch of Steampunk to your Resistance character.
The Limey [Nigga] – Bring order to the Ark with this outfit inspired by traditional European police lawmen.
Quite swell if you ask me, but why it wasn't included in the game from the get-go and why you have to pay for it if you don't manage to acquire it within these two weeks is something I'll never understand.


Here are some pictures of the maps included in the DLC so as to end on a less violent note. Lovely.
