Brink's Agent of Change DLC Now Available!


The Agents of Change DLC is now available for download on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, and Steam! Better yet, you'll be able to download it for free on all platforms for the next two weeks - it's our way of saying thank you for your continued support for Brink.

Agents of Change contains two brand-new maps, Labs and Founders' Tower, five new player abilities, two new outfits, and two new weapon attachments. It also raises the level cap to 24 and adds new trophies (PS3) and achievements (Xbox 360 and PC). Be sure to check out the image above for an overview of all the goodies included in the DLC.

To download Agents of Change, head to the Downloadable Content tab in the game's main menu or visit Xbox Live Marketplace, the PSN Store, or the Steam store, depending on your platform. If you don't have access to any of these at the moment, you can use these links to queue up the DLC on your system of choice and be all set when you return:

Have you downloaded Agents of Change yet? Share your thoughts in the comments!

Update: After a brief appearance, the Steam store has swallowed Agents of Change again. We'll let you know when it's back up.

Update #2: Aaand it's back on Steam. Go, go, go!

Won't install. Thank you Steam for failing with such consistency. When clicking the link in a browser or inside the game it will not do anything but ask me if I have steam or not. When looking for the page inside Steam's store the page will redirect to some place else. When people tell me Steam has become good in recent years I always cringe.

Same here, can't install.. can't even access it on store page.

Alright, SD or Steam or wood nymphs or DLC gods... whoever... This has now become ridiculous. I see a listing for it on Steam. But I don't have it. It is not downloading. So what now, powers-that-be??? Please tell me what now! + I just made a page in BRINK's honor. Don't make me look like a fool or tool or tooly foolio. Please. http://evga.com/gaming/?p=4344
Posted on 3 August, 2011 - 22:51
Figured out what is the matter. The links in steam that are supposed to direct to http://store.steampowered.com/app/22364 all direct to something else. Like the news page. If you can figure out how to get this url to open inside that retarded POS Steam then you might be able to install it. But since it doesn't seem to work when you are doing it in STEAM from the game itself. That's probably not gonna happen, because. As previously stated. Steam is a Steaming pile of Gabe Newell ****.

They should have prepare for this 2-3 days ahead before release. So all the platform can release at the same time and people would be happy with equality with ones feel like getting stab in the back for being royal fans. kinda remind me of Nintendo dropped 3DS price down to 170$ from 250$ lol... and they can't do anything except the fake apologize. big guys keep bullying people who can't fight them back around.

Hmm, no gun tweaks for pc. Oh well.

Brink just can't catch a break, It constantly get nibbled on by Gremlins.
Posted on 3 August, 2011 - 23:02
Hahhahahahah I actually got to the AoC product page on Steam. But nothing happens when I click "install" so exited steam and reopened my steam client. THen I went to news, saw the AoC listing with the same link to teh product pg. I click that link again and it now takes me to the Steam homepage or Store page. Come on, really?! I like the Three Stooges just as much as anyone but this is just a bit pathetic.

Pretty funny that we're going to be the last to get the DLC, yet we didn't need to even wait for anyone to certify it. Oh well, it isn't like the DLC will save the game and the only reason to wait for it was the NA ESL tournament that isn't even going to happen, lol.

I think they should drop the whole "all platforms at the same time" thing. Why? So you can market it once and save some money? Look at all the issues it's caused. That costs more than the money you save. Reputation and brand are expensive (just ask coke). Ofc the other solution is: If you're planning on releasing on the 3rd, tell everyone that it'll be available on the 4th and then sneak it in. If everything is good on the 3rd then happy unbirthday. At least there'll be less complaining that way.
Posted on 3 August, 2011 - 23:05
Looks like they removed it again.
Posted on 3 August, 2011 - 23:07
So 1 more hour and it will officially miss all of Europe for the 3rd of August release?

Posted on 3 August, 2011 - 23:20
You failed the PC community once again. Don't worry we will not forget this next time you release a game.
Posted on 3 August, 2011 - 23:22
Just restart the game, Steam will auto-update it with the DLC now. 6 more minutes for me.

Your probably downloading the patch. The DLC is no where to be found on steam now.
Posted on 3 August, 2011 - 23:25
I "bought" dlc earlier and now when i started brink it downloaded that 480Mb patch. And its working :)
Posted on 3 August, 2011 - 23:26
Got the DLC downloaded now

That was 30 minutes after already using the bayonet in MP, so no. However, this (large) update doesn't have any maps, it seems.
Posted on 3 August, 2011 - 23:29
Can we get an official word on the status?
Posted on 3 August, 2011 - 23:31
Seems to be working just fine.. "repairing the bio-sequencer" :)

Still waiting to hear back from Valve. As anxious to find out as you are.
Posted on 3 August, 2011 - 23:41
**** it, I am going to bed. Customer satisfaction must be a completely alien concept to Valve.
Posted on 3 August, 2011 - 23:41
Yup, not got anything here either... EDIT: It's coming now! ;)
Posted on 3 August, 2011 - 23:43
ugggg.... this is officially driving me nuts....... i love the game but its really hard to support it with all the trouble.....
Posted on 3 August, 2011 - 23:45
PC gamers are once again very happy :) BTW what happens when somebody who doesn't own the dlc connects to a server who have a dlc-map on its rotation?

Same as Borderlands.. they don't even test the game properly and lied that they played it every single day and yet some of the skills is not working in very obvious way(meaning: it doesn't work at all)
Posted on 3 August, 2011 - 23:47

Disconnect. (At least, I disconnect trying to connect to servers running DLC maps now).
Posted on 3 August, 2011 - 23:52

There is a huge difference between connection to a server running the map or who have the map on its rotation (but playing another map when you connect) :) It's totally idiot to divide another bit the community once again (first through 3 platform, then through level restricted server, and now DLCrap), RIP BRINK.

I like the new content, it's really awesome On a slightly side note, in a world of dreams and fantasy and where people can make maps for Brink, will they be available too on PS3? I mean, if mappers make a map for PC, can PS3 players play those maps as well? (a bit like ETQW, not sure how the deal is there) Anyhow, thanks for the DLC - I had some fun matches :)
Posted on 4 August, 2011 - 00:25
.... nvm :)
Posted on 4 August, 2011 - 00:39
It's a little confusing, but if you launch Brink, select a character, and click Donwnloadable Content, you can get to the DLC and after you click Install it tells you the game is registered to your account. it also tells you to launch the game. So close Brink and restart it -- the download should begin. -Throbblefoot EDIT: I'm talking about the PC versio and Steam if I wasn't clear...
Posted on 4 August, 2011 - 00:40
Just played both maps. Wow awesome graphics. Will write more tomorrow, but for now, just wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm happy and glad I stuck with Brink. Now Brink is almost(98%) what I've anticipated pre release. Best fps. SD, you did it, you did it. You just saved the IP, haaaah!!!!!!!
Posted on 4 August, 2011 - 00:41
I still don't have the maps. I have the other stuff though, and I've restarted the game multiple times. It also says I have installed the DLC. Help?
Posted on 4 August, 2011 - 00:45
Now Brink is almost what I anticipated pre release.
I agree with this. The weapon balance tweaks and full bore ai on freeplay really improve the game. Now SD just needs to improve the latency when waiting for the buff/revive/package delivery button to appear and make the weapons a little more accurate.

Founders tower is extremely cool I love all the ducking and jumping and sliding you do at the top.
Posted on 4 August, 2011 - 00:51

I have the same issue. I guess we downloaded the borked version. I can't find a way to re-dl it.
Posted on 4 August, 2011 - 01:12
Look in Steam store new releases ...its D/L for me now. If you already D/L and its not working try verify integrity of game cache files.

Posted on 4 August, 2011 - 01:42
I am kind of neutral on the dlc. the maps are pretty good, but they both allow for a massive turtle at the last objective. the bayonet takes too long to swing, and is MAYBE useful as an assassination type device for operatives. the shield is really cool, but not my cup of tea. the abilities i like. the pyro mine has some amazing uses if you are willing to think outside the box with it. the field regen device could have been done better i think. level cap increase isnt a bad thing. im glad they didnt extend into a new rank. as it sits now, you can comfortably make a 2-class character, and if you go relatively bare bones, you could probably pull off a 3 class character. the outfits are pretty cool, but i prefer my preexisting outfit. they mesh well with the other outfits, which was something i was hoping for. --- i do however need to applaud the weapon adjustments. i dont use a heavy, never did. i do however love the fact that they are now a force to be reckoned with, and not a nuisance that i feel the need to vote-kick when they land on my team. i also love being able to use the galactic without having to worry about getting carbed to death constantly. I <3 SD.

Cool maps. These look great and have a lot of different routes, vantage points, and strategies. The new abilities are fun. UAV is cool. Bayonets on SMG. FTW! Had a blast today. The cut scenes add some cool new wrinkles. Impressive. :)
Posted on 4 August, 2011 - 03:32
Is there also a pc patch included? *refering to the pc suggestion thread* of is it only new stuff they implemented?
Posted on 4 August, 2011 - 07:26
I like the DLC, it honestly made me glad I didn't sell the game a couple months ago when I stopped playing it. I probably played it for a solid 2 weeks or so then never played it again because I didn't like how the game was.... and I held out hope they would fix it. While it's not entirely fixed, and some damage is permanent (destruction of the online community)... the DLC was fun. The costumes aren't anything special but the maps were good IMO and the weapon shields made me love playing heavy again (which was why i bought the game in the first place). I wish they had let the minigun or at least the maximus use the shields but it's not a total loss... the autoshotty is a complete beast. It alone is the real reason to be a heavy now.
Posted on 4 August, 2011 - 07:55
Just dropping by to say... thanks Splash Damage. I know you guys get a lot of s*** for just trying to make a game that people like and I really appreciate your continued support. I haven't had time to really try out the DLC, but I'll be sure to report back later on with my thoughts. Thanks again and looking forward to future updates. Regards, Nexo

The new maps are top notch. Vertical battles and tons of parkour. Plus they look amazing. The new abilities are cool. Still trying to get a handle on the new stuff. Impressive job! The icing on the cake: The DLC was FREE! :)

I can connect to non DLC maps. The DLC map name does not show in the server browser. it tries to connect but just stops. I have the new abilities in the client.

Absolutely!!!!!!^^^^ but(tiny,tiny but) I'd like to see some new Resistance Maps too in the future. They will certainly not be free DLC but I don't care I'd definitely buy them. The new DLC brings great fun for the next weeks or even months. But I'd like to hear some word from the officials about future DLCs. And if there is such thing at all. If so, beyond all tweaks abilities and stuff, new Res-maps are way on top of my wishlist.
Posted on 4 August, 2011 - 15:40
Played both new maps a little and people on my team never cease to disappoint me... more than quake wars! I was the only person anywhere near half the objectives and I'd never played the maps before. There are no hills for people to frolic about on in brink game so I have no idea where people disappear to or what they do there. Reminds me why I hate playing with random people in pvp mp games. Weapons are still frustrating random hit, crit or miss but there also seemed to be many more people sporting unfortunate combinations of black and green (colors shared across factions) than I remembered. Might try some more later but it's just not as fun as a certain other pvp mp fps (quake wars) I could be playing. uav is cute. should be a smiley with it on these forums.

In a pub game I played last night, I was getting pretty frustrated with my Security teammates on CCity... I got the gate blown by SMARTing up the left, killing the two guys there, jumping the 3 at the gate from behind and killing them, then planting and defending the charge. I couldn't get the bot all that far as the defence was far more organized. The match ended with me watching one of my Security team mates having oodles of fun shooting one of the dynamic blue barrels in the spawn. :stroggbanana:
Posted on 4 August, 2011 - 17:13
That sounds pretty awesome- you guys should record some of your gameplay, I'm sure you guys have moves we could all learn from.

This And not just that but allow some of us to play a few rounds when you guys are online. Like say give a day or 2 heads up that some devs will be playing (pc,xbox,or ps3) and what mode you all will be playing in. Im sure you would love to play a few with the angry fans jk lol:stroggbanana::stroggbanana:
Posted on 4 August, 2011 - 19:11
You really just need to ask the Brink Hardcore guys to do some recordings. From just a few rounds, it was painfully obvious that they understood so much about what we tried to do with the game. :wink:

It's a choice. It is one of the options you can bind to any of your ability buttons. As such you can have it and any two other Operative abilities, or you can not have it all and have three of the other options instead. Regards, Nexo
