Tribes 2 Reaches Beta
9:45 AM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story

Dynamix's Dave Georgeson has made a forum post at Tribal War about Tribes 2. Apparently, Dynamix's upcoming team-based multiplayer game has reached beta. This is the stage where all the features are implemented in the game, and time for testing has begun. Although Dynamix has previously hinted at a Mac version of the game, only PC and Linux versions are currently being announced as on progress. Here is his forum post:

Yup. We finally made it. 6:30 a.m. on Friday morning and we're making the final beta burn to send up to Sierra QA to begin beta testing.

We're on the Road to Gold now, baby! The game is looking great. There's a ton of polishing to do on it, but the frame rate, stability, compatibility, fun, and general gloriousness of the darn thing has morale pretty high. We all can't wait until External Beta so we can put this in the hands of some testers and get the newness knocked off it so we can polish it up some more.

It's going to be a really good game, folks. But I'm gonna go sleep for a couple days now, so I'll be back later to talk about it more.

Just passing the good news on.

We have contacted Georgeson about the Mac version of Tribes 2, and will let you know of any word we receive.
