Playing Splash Damage's Brink likely won't require too much thought, but if you're at all confused about what this online multiplayer shooter has to offer that's different from your standard Halo or Call of Duty fare, you might want to watch this.

Bethesda offers this educational video on "The Basics"—the classes, objectives and customization of this team-based first-person shooter, due in just a couple weeks. And if you're wondering why they're emphasizing the SMART, they're referring to the "smooth movement across random terrain" system that makes running through these levels less troublesome.

Brink comes to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in North America on May 10, 2011 and across Europe on May 13, 2011.
