If all goes as planned, the next patch for Tribes will be available next week. It will contain a new game mode called Biltz. This is a variation of CTF where the flag position is becoming easier to defend. For example on Katabatic, capture at the fifth, the flag is located within the base under the flag stand.

This update also will add tons of voice packs. In fact, it is neither more nor less than all the voices of Tribes 2: men, women and even bioderms.

Finally, the Technician will be entitled to new hardware. The TC24 is a kind of Thumper optimized for CQB: it has a charger that can be emptied four shots very quickly, but its scope and damages are less than those of conventional Thumper. The Tech is also entitled to a new turret, the EXR. We can deploy it and on the ground and draws mini unguided rockets that are less painful than conventional missiles turrets, but they make the splash damage and have better range which makes them more effective when s' is to stop a caper happens to all blind. Finally, if you're tired of running a turret to another to repair your database, choose the Repair Kit: This is a small deployable repairs for you. Although it is slow to act, we can already imagine the effect it may have when it is hidden behind the turrets at the enemy used to spam by far.

I have spoken a bit with Bart when I was on the stand of HiRez. Currently, the game has a little less than 1, 5M of players and the number of servers continues to grow each month. The developers are now trying to see how to release the game in Asia, but it is very difficult to install servers in China or Korea without the help of an editor from the country. Meanwhile, they are in a discusion with the e-sport leagues of Europe to organize a big tournament with the final play in LAN.

Can't say I'll ever play this game again unless GW2 and Mechwarrior are down. Too bad they didn't release the game with all the maps/gametypes/skins/etc it has now. Might have done better.
