Starsiege: Tribes 16 years on

Submitted by: EvanVolm @ 04:32 PM | Monday, December 1, 2014 | (url: http://www.fps-z....)

Tribes will be celebrating its 16th birthday today, though celebrating may be a bit of an overstatement. Unlike other popular PC games of the mid-to-late 90s such as Starcraft, Quake, Unreal Tournament, Half-Life, and of course Counter Strike, the original Tribes has unfortunately been unable to retain much of its player base. While there was a time when the game had over 100,000 players and a plethora of servers and mods to choose from, those days have long since passed.

Those remaining today are the die-hards. The ones who know the game from the inside out, and absolutely slaughter the rare newcomers who dare to step -or fly- in front of their Spinfusor. Online activity typically peaks later into the evenings, with just two servers managing to attract between 12 and 18 players each, 20 on a good day. In total there are roughly 5 active servers, none of which feature the vanilla game itself anymore. Popular mods such as Annihilation and LT (Light Tribes or Light Training, depending on who you ask) have taken over the original game that launched in 1998.


Old buddies reunite with Tribes

Not too long ago Sierra shocked fans of the futuristic shooter when they turned the master server off, for good. Die hard fans have made it possible to still play Tribes and Tribes 2 online. Now the time has come for the ps2 port of T2, Aerial Assault. TAA was ran off of the T2 master server, so they were terminated at the same time. But thanks to OnlineConsoles, the game has a new master server in which they created and host on their own. If you were ever affiliated with TAA communities, you may have received a mass email which was sent to a couple hundred register users. The email contained the date and time of a Tribes Aerial Assault reunion game. This match will be held on Tuesday July 13th at 8pm EST. If you need more information regarding the match, head on over to www.TribesAA.net and if you're having trouble connecting to the new master server you can try www.OnlineConsoles.com

Remember Tribes? The original jetpack shooter? Yeah, you probably know what game I'm talking about.

Well Tribes is coming back! We have obtained the IP for the entire Starsiege Universe including Tribes 1. We'll be showing Tribes 1 off at GDC this next week in San Francisco, so if you will be there, be sure to stop by our booth and check it out.
