Rated T for Teen, Brink, was published by Bethesda Softworks, being one of the most expected first person shooters of 2011.

What is The Security
The Security was formed before the Resistance, when the Arkwas a floating resort. Back then, the Security had to protect the guests and maintain order on the Ark.
Later, when the waters flooded the land, the Ark became a place for refugees; therefore the Security forces were asked to watch over them.
But when the food ratios were reduced and the Resistance was formed, the Arks leaders provided more weapons to their Security troops as well as better equipment.
They also received the instructions to stop any rebellion and those who try to contact the Outside world.
The Security vs The Resistance
While the Resistance forces enlisted in the organization because they were unfairly treated, some Security soldiers joined their faction for an extra daily water ratio.
Some of them joined because they believe that the remaining resources should be conserved, not wasted trying to reach the Outside world.
Other members of Security simply follow the orders they receive from their leaders, but no matter what they think, or believe, the Security and theResistance have different objectives, which will eventually lead to a civil war.
The Security: Equipment and Objectives
Unlike the Resistance, the Security fights for different objectives. They must protect the Arks leaders and the remaining resources, trying to put an end to the Resistance and their future attacks.
Players will observe that in Brink, the Security forces are well equipped; however this will not affect the gameplay.
Their uniforms indicate their roles in the unit, but these are only visual characteristics. The weapons that can be used by players who join the Security are: SMGs, assault rifles, shotguns and grenade launchers.
