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.

InstantAction Brings Tribes To Your Web Browser

Submitted by: BugsPray @ 01:05 PM | Tuesday, March 17, 2009 | (url: http://kotaku.com...)

"When browser-based gaming destination first announced GarageGames' Fallen Empires: Legions, people immediately started calling it a browser-based Tribes. InstantAction would rather we call it the spiritual successor, especially now that they've got an official web-based version of Tribes on the way. The new web-based version of Tribes will feature enhanced graphics, thanks to InstantAction's powerful browser-based gaming tools, along with better modding options.

Visitors to the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco next week will be able to get their hands on a playable version of Tribes, while learning how InstantAction managed to deliver an updated version of the game in web browser format.

Now, the Tribes Next team has created its own authentication server that's free and easy to use, even if you didn't have an account (or CD key) before.

GarageGames unveils InstantAction.com

Submitted by: [Ms] iNsAnE @ 02:02 PM | Monday, March 10, 2008 | (url: http://www.instan...)

Currently in Beta. InstantAction.com will allow online playing of FREE 3D games. Including the Tribes(ish) "Fallen Empire: Legions"


The Next Tribes?

Submitted by: BugsPray @ 10:07 PM | Wednesday, January 16, 2008 | (url: http://pc.ign.com...)

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.

Submitted by: TribesAerialAssault @ 09:06 PM | Friday, August 31, 2007 | (url: http://www.taacol...)

On August 27, 2007 there were very many people on TAA for the ps2 in the MGS Test server, although all of the people at www.taa5v5.tk have stopped playing. (There use to be a 22 slot server up in February 2007, and it usually got full at night..There are at least 2 clans left.. and ...the people that no longer play seem to "laugh" whenever someone says TRIBES IS DEAD. They seem to have no clue in what being a nice person is all about) In the last 2 days the list of servers have been refreshed 216 times.
Here are the list of players that played on Monday:
1.Gungrave
2.Gutterslut god
3.Mist
4.Anthony something
5.Hoosurdadee
6.Warrior 1
7.Warrior 2
8.Rookie
9.Honeymuffin
