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.

Can you imagine playing Tribes with more than 10 people in a comp setting? Do you want an intense CTF Tribes match with medium and heavy armors present? Do you long for the days when you do not have to sit in observer for multiple maps just to get a chance to play?

The developers of Global Agenda have been taking a long look at player feedback over the past months, particularly that regarding Warzones in the game, and they've come to a decision. It's certainly not one that players were expecting, though.

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

Here is a news article about Tribes (shock). It goes over some of the history of the game and then rounds up touching on GG buying the rights and some mention of it at PAX this year and a hopeful release towards the end of this year.

"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.

For those who don't check tribes talk, Arcanox recently released two new videos.
Ok, sorry for the delay. There was a bit of back and forth getting these video files captured. Unfortunately the fellow who did these for me forgot to max the quality settings for the game, and there's some differences when some of the visual elements are scaled back.
