Brink is certainly shaping up to be one to watch come next fall. While much of the E3 press for the game has been positive, you can only really get a feel what people have been raving about when you see the game in motion.

Developer Splash Damage, who have previously worked on only multiplayer expansion packs for existing franchises, such as Doom 3 and Quake Wars, have releases three videos from their E3 demo from earlier this year.

The first shows off the game’s SMART (Smooth Movement Across Random Terrain) system. The game appears to be building off of where Mirror’s Edge left off, implementing a efficient and streamlined movement system, but giving you just enough control so as to dissuade any feelings of autopilot.

The second and third videos show this system incorporated into Brink’s gunplay. The game has a very Borderlands vibe, with its experience dropping enemies. Also displayed is the game’s class system, which allows you to change your character’s load-out mid-game, to best fit the current combat situation. Classes featured include the stealth special operative and the engineer.

Brink’s campaign will feature up to 7 player drop-in/drop-out cooperative play, extensive character customization, and various tattoos to hide your numerous body insecurities. Get ready to enter the fray come fall 2010.

Videos after the jump.
