Q&A on Tribes 2
1:06 PM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story
The Swedish PC site FragZone has scored a new Q & A with Dave Georgeson, the producer of Dynamix's soon-to-be-finished teamplay-based shooter, Tribes 2. Their questions the original Tribes, which was for PC only, to the sequel. Here is a sample:
FZ: You never saw any dogfights between scouts in Tribes1, as it was too hard to hit each other.Will it be possible to have dogfights in Tribes2 (not counting transports firing at each other).
DG: You bet. And they're fun. Our scout fliers are MUCH nimbler than they were in Tribes 1, allowing even loops and inverted flight. Special tailgunner seats are designed on the bomber and heavy transport simply because the scouts can get into the blind spots of those vehicles and devastate them if no one is protecting their "six".
The inclusion of combat aircraft sounds like a game within the game itself. Tribes 2 is due for Mac and PC this Fall.
