    Pre-Order now to get access to the closed Beta (This essentially includes some store credits and other bonuses since this game is Free to Play). Not only can you start playing now, but nothing will be rest when the game officially launches, so you can keep all your unlocks.

    Played it tonight. All that Tribes-y goodness in a new shiny package. I approve.

    Oh yeah? Are they still pretty heavy about the team work?

    FYI to anyone who is curious, Tribes is probably one of the most different FPS' you'll ever see.

    I only played one match, but people seemed to be much better about class variety and helping out than most shooters I play. I had a ton of fun, which is something I can't say for BF3 or COD half the time.

    Also, I just spent part of my pre-order "gold" on the Technician class. I love turrets and repair'n base defenses.

    Lulz! I hear that this game is developed by the designers that made Global Agenda, which is a pretty sweet F2P MMO.

    Ya know what I miss though? Effen EarthSiege/StarSiege! The Cybirds are some FREAKY machine bad guys, who I believe are trying to achieve god-hood, but I recall that Promethius, the Cybird super computer, last wanted to discover "the will to live" and use that against his human enemies. We ever gonna repel that terror again? :>

    I only have "Aerial Assault" on the PS2. My PC is nowhere as powerful to run this new thing. Darn.

    Man, this game looks good from the videos I've seen. I'd love to support it, but I just don't have the cash to pay for early access.

    Two keys left. If nobody is interested, I'm going to be sad that more people aren't into Tribes.

    Free beta keys? I have no history with Tribes, but that sounds like the perfect excuse to start one.

    Well, I tried to play some of this last night.
    Needless to say, I suck terribly at this game. I got a total of 5 kills, 4 of which were point-blank Spin Fuser shots that I somehow managed to survive, the other being an actual aimed shot against a player who was just as awkward as I was. My time with CTF seemed alright, but my experience with Rabbit was horrible. You see, I didn't care to learn the game mechanics before thinking "WOWCOOLFLYINGLEMMETRY", so I kinda got stuck trying to figure out how to get some more ammo after I ran out. Which didn't bode well, seeing as I had the flag. I figured out how to skate around and whatnot though, so I didn't die immediately.
    In short, damn fun even though I had no clue what was going on.
