When was the last time you went skiing... with a jetpack? If you've been at all, chances are it was a while ago in Starseige: Tribes or its successor, Tribes 2. The latter was released nearly a decade ago and is regarded as one of the best multiplayer shooters of all time. Now, Hi-Rez games is developing a new chapter in the storied franchise.
Interestingly, Hi-Rez is also working on a Tribes Universe MMO. Tribes: Ascend, however, is described as the "multiplayer successor" to Tribes 2. Count on skiing, jetpacks, vehicles, and perhaps the occasional Shazbot. Epic's Unreal Engine 3 will provide the foundation for the game, which will be released on the PC and consoles later this year. There's even a trailer:
Yeah, I just got goosebumps. The trailer's lack of gameplay footage is a little troubling, though. Tribes is all about gameplay, and with Ascend less than ten months out, one would think that element of the game would be ready to share with the public.
