Ajaxprojection has posted a video in our forums (now taken down, but mirrored elsewhere) that honestly, looks to be the next Tribes game.

This is huge, obviously. We all figured tribes was dead as of T:V. Could GarageGames be working on a spiritual successor? Did they actually manage to grab the rights?

There is also a photo of a workstation posted on Tim Aste's GarageGames blog. Does that armor look familiar?

But most importantly, why else would there be a video floating around with the following - jetpacks, skiing, a vertical disc launcher, but a disc launcher all the same... rolling hills, GIGANTIC structures fading off into the distance. The video is a triber's dream come true. The video IS tribes. But what does it represent? A new edition, or a tech demo with excessive fan service? We should find out at GDC.

I still have a sour taste in my mouth after T:V, It was a great game but support for it dropped as soon as it released...

Think I will continue to play the original for now.

I can still play Tribes 2 now and get totally addicted for hours, several years since I bought it. No other game has lasted me as long.

Tribes:Vengeance was such a disappointment, it would be great if there was a Tribes 4 that really did the series justice.

T:V tried to suck players in with a single player game but I really think it backfired. I didn't mind the game but it sold poorly. *If* a new "tribes" game is made then it should really be mp only. This could all be a beatup over nothing, which would be disappointing.

I used to play Tribes 2 for hours on end.. I loved that game... I had some of the most fun in a game on that game. I hope a new one on a new engine comes out that is almost the same! :)

If the effort put into T:V's SP was put into MP support then it would have succeeded. Instead the plug was pulled after what, a few months?

If they can recreate the first Tribes with a next gen graphics engine and have all the gameplay elements that the first one had, recreate the older maps, I bet they'll sell millions.

IMO the mods ruined T1. The original game was fine as is, besides the heavies that could mortar jump across the map.

If they make a spiritual successor to Tribes, then they'd better include an identical interface as in Tribes 2 with forums, email and chat! That had SUCH a big part in keeping me from quitting the game.

It's a tech demo, but it could be more
