If I was going to make a terrible pun (and I am) I would say that Bethesda is on the 'Brink' of a huge 2011. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the obvious big Kahuna burger - but RAGE, Brink and Hunted aren't to be trifled with either. Thankfully we've just received Aussie release dates for each and every single one of them.
Brink is first out of the gate, on May 20. Brink has flown under the radar, but seems to be doing some genuinely innovative things within the multiplayer space - particularly with regards to player movement, adding an accessible Mirror's Edge style mechanic to proceedings. Brink is doing things a little differently, and we're quite excited about that.
Hunted is next, going onsale June 3, and RAGE, which was genuinely one of our favourites games of E3 2010 will hit Australian shelves September 16. The scale and grandeur of what we've seen from RAGE so far is off the charts. It could easily be one of the best shooters released in 2011 - and in a genre bolstered with multiple top notch titles, that's really saying something.
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is easily Bethesda's biggest release, of course, and will be released on November 11.
That's a pretty meaty line-up and it's great to hear Bethesda announce such solid release dates well in advance.
