Strap On A Jetpack, It's Time To Look At The New Tribes Game

First revealed back in March, it's not until today that we're getting our first proper look at Tribes: Ascend, the latest game in the long-running sci-fi shooter series.

These two screens are it, sadly, but die-hard fans of the series will no doubt be able to drag some info out of the weapons and geography on show.

Ascend is the first Tribes game since 2004's Vengeance, and will be out later this year on Xbox Live Arcade and the PC.

    As a long time Tribes player, that looks absolutely...

    ...decent? What? That can't be right!

    Never played tribes but would love to give it a go. Is it still possible to get and play?

      Tribes 1 - it doesn't require a CD key, but I doubt there are any populated servers around now.

      Tribes 2 - no idea where you'd get it, and again I doubt there'd be any populated servers.

      Tribes Vengeance - if there's a higher power, there will be no populated servers (singleplayer was fine but the multiplayer didn't appeal to new players OR veteran players).

        I do beleive there is a free-to-play version of tribes 2 out there with a very active online community. Will hunt the link down later.

      A few months ago I found that Starsiege Tribes (the first one) was freeware and so I downloaded it immediately, having lost my original CDs and there were indeed some servers still up and populated, I just had to look them up (google'd)...

      but I will warn you... they're kinda nuts. I didn't last long and there seemed to be lots of hacking/modding of some kind going on :-P

      Still, it was some good old fashioned Disc-Launcher fun :)

    Ye olde disc launcher looks nice.
    Wonder if you can still ski...

      Hi-rez wouldn't dare release a Tribes game without including skiing... they would have one very angry fan-base on their hands if they even considered it!

      Personally I can't wait to see this game in action. Tribes 1 & 2 were two of the greatest games I've played online, ever. I would even rate my experiences playing Tribes beyond that of Counter-strike.

    I really liked the idea of Tribes back in the day when I had a 31.2 dial-up modem connection to the internet. It was like a proto-MMO mixed with MechWarrior. I was very sad I couldn't play it properly!

    Excitement!

    With Tribes 1 & 2 I had to run it through a dialup modem and 2 ran a bit laggy on my PC at the time anyway. Now once this comes out I'll be able to run it through a decent connection! I look forward to more Tribes goodness!! ^_^

    Vengeance was damn fun, and without Skiing, Section 8: Prejudice doesn't feel right. Bring it on! :D

    Man, the original was amazing.
    Almost failed TAFE between this and Starcraft on account of playing on the library computers, lol.

    Section 8 always kind of reminded me of Tribes. Ah the good ol' days.

    Where the hell was I when this series started?!?

    Based on what I'm seeing here, this looks really promising...

    Legions Overdrive is much like Tribes. Just way better...

    (New version of Fallen Empire Legions)
    Free to play!!!

    You guys for real!?? I started playing T2 when I was 50 and always been on the US servers even with a 300 ping for last ten years. Still crap though! Gettin older, LOL! BUT you can download the orig and a new ruby hack that allows login to new servers on www.TribesNext.com Still heaps of servers online but only one in OZ thats never populated, but GOONHAVEN ALWAYS has 5-50 people on US nights and weekends.

    TRIBES 2 will die when I do..... SHAZBOT!
