Hi-Rez Studios Announces Tribes Universe

Posted on October 10, 2010

The classic PC series, Tribes, has been dormant for some time now. The online multiplayer shooter hasn’t seen a lot of action since Irrational Games released Tribes: Vengeance back in 2004. Tribe fans can expect things to get a bit more active, however, since Global Agenda developer Hi-Rez Studios just announced that it has acquired the Tribes license and has been working hard on a Tribes MMO.

Hi-Rez Studios talked a bit about the game on its Global Agenda forums, mentioning a the following facts:

  • Three Tribes (factions)
  • Full clan (agency) support
  • First person view (third person for some vehicles)
  • Full vehicle support (ground and air)
  • Full persistent world with territory control (no instances)
  • PvP focused
  • Huge outdoor maps (about 10x the area of sonoran desert)
  • Large scale fights (100+ players)
  • Jetpacks, skiing, lots of weapons, etc.

Hi-Rez also mentioned that Tribes Universe would enter Alpha testing at the beginning of the new year, and if you’re a level 50 Global Agenda player you’ll have priority in entering Alpha and Beta testing.
