Does it come with Renegades? Or a game mode similar to it? Renegades CTF or Defend and Destroy was all I played in the original. Building turrets and shields was great fun.

Actually they redid some of the graphics engine and it now has PS 2.0 effects in the game. Things like water and HDR are done in ps 2.0

But would like to hear about what you thought after you tried it...
Tru, like some would agrue that the Crytek engine is DX8 w/ a few DX9 features thrown in. For what its worth though, can't wait to try it out tonight.

Was wondering about that cause I noticed the water in those screenies looked like they were using some PS2.0

Tribes is simply awesome. It's like planetside without the streamlining needed to make it a MMOG.

Agreed. I was not impressed with the first two outings to be honest, and the screenies posted look like a million other games already out.

Each to there own thou.

Tribes 1 was the greatest multiplayer FPS aside from Quake2 that I have ever played. Tribes 2 didn't really do it for me( I dunno why, maybe I was sick of tribes bt then).. But T:V has that old Starsiege look to it which really grabs my attention.. THe gameplay is great as usuall, and the new grapple hook adds another element to the game. And for the beta I would say its pretty damn solid...With few freezes every now and then, I am still able to just ctrl-alt-del out of T:V and restart the game. Which does not happen often; I played for a good 5 hours straight lol.


oh ya, nVidiot.. Funny you live in San Francisco... Did you ever goto any tribes lan parties at club-i( on Folsom st) a couple years back?
