Forthcoming Bethesda FPS Brink hits the shelves a week earlier than initially planned, the publisher has announced.

Gamers in Europe can now pick up the Splash Damage-developed title on 13th May, rather than the 20th, while US gamers get it on the 10th May, rather than the 17th.

"Production wrapped on Brink earlier than we planned and we didn't see any reason to keep gamers from getting their hands on this highly anticipated game as soon as it was ready," explained Bethesda marketing man Pete Hines.

"It's apparent from the tremendous reaction so far that people are eager to jump online and play, and if we can make that happen earlier - we're going to."

The parkour-influenced shooter will be available on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Take a look at Quintin Smith's recent hands-on preview for more colour.
