The Next Tribes?

Want another Tribes game? It's looking like Fallen Empire: Legions might scratch that itch, a title by GarageGames, a company founded by four ex-Dynamix (Starsiege: Tribes developer) employees. Fallen Empire appears to be at least somewhat similar to Tribes, mostly because of its visual style and because it apparently has jetpacks. It'll be made available through InstantAction, a service that lets players play 3D action games in web browser. We didn't have a chance to play, but did get the opportunity to lob a few questions at Tim Aste, project director for Fallen Empire: Legions to get a basic sense of what the game is and how how it will work.
