The lights are on
The sci-fi shooter franchise has been dormant for years, but Hi-Rez Studios (Global Agenda) is gearing up to put out a free-to-play sequel. Based on the video released today, the developers have a decent idea of what Tribes is all about.Any skepticism I initially harbored toward this news was dispelled by the fact that the paleolithic Mac I'm currently working on choked on rendering the first-person gameplay video – because you move so freaking fast in Tribes: Ascend. Skating down hills, conserving momentum into kilometer-spanning leaps, feathering your jetpack controls to stick precise landings: this is what I'm talking about.
Really looks like a shinier Global Agenda...
Therefore I'm concerned GA was a good concept, but ultimately I never felt like it was a finished product.
I'd put that same concern here
wow is like playing with the hulk
Tribes, so very near and dear to my heart... it must have been 7 years since I played one... but Ascend appears to be worth it's weight.
My issue with tribes was always the weapons. It seemed like 90% of the weapons were sniper of some sort with slow fire rates. Add that inn with the speed of the game and it had a very steep learning curve.
I can't wait! Tribes 2 is one of my favorite multiplayer games of all time!
Looks like good game :)
Hope this isn't PC only. I loved Tribes on the PS2, hope this one makes its way over to the consoles as well.
looks kinda like halo n since i refuse to pay for gold membership anymore that isn't a bad thing
I have the fondest memories of Tribes 2. This new project has major potential. I hope the sound effects live up to the high standard set by T2.
Tribes 2 was by far the best online gameplay I can remember. And it had the most fun mods the community could offer (building a fortress singlehandedly to protect your flag or launching a map destroying nuke). I hope they don't follow the 3rd's formula by locking out the moders.
