2011 will be a big year for Bethesda; the studio is publishing a total of four high-profile titles, two of which have just received their first firm release dates. According to a press release, Brink will hit on May 17 in North America, while Hunted: The Demon’s Forge will hit on June 1. The European releases of both will follow two days after the NA dates and both will see releases on the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3.
Of course, these two titles will be joined by id Software’s RAGE which will see a release in September and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on November 11, as previously reported.
If you haven’t been keeping up, Brink is Splash Damage’s class-based first-person shooter. One of the coolest aspects of the game is its purported seamless integration of campaign and multiplayer, which will share the same objective-based foundation. We’ve got a pretty beefy wiki page for the game if you’re interesting in learning a bit more or browsing some videos of the game in action. Note the Mirror’s Edge-ish movement, too, because that’ll be neat to experiment with later this Spring.
== TEASER ==Hunted: The Demon’s Forge couldn’t be much more different than Brink. It’s a third-person, dark fantasy cover-based shooter with an emphasis on dungeon crawling and co-op play between the two protagonists, a barbarian named Caddoc and a range-based elf-type of chick named E’lara.

That’s a lot of Bethesda in one year, right? Any of these a day-one purch for you or will you be hanging around for reviews?
