New Tribes 2 Images, Interview
12:47 PM | Charles George | Comment on this story

Euro-Tribesplayers, a European Tribes/Tribes 2 fan site, managed to score a few new images of this first-person shooter from Dynamix in action. Accompanied by narrative text, these new shots tell a story of pain, suffering, fear and despair. Thinking about playing this game on your Mac ought to cheer you back up.

In related news, Tribes 2 Players managed to score a very cool interview with Mark Frohnmayer of Dynamix. The article focuses on network code, and how it will affect low-bandwidth gamers. Here's a sample:

T2P: How exactly will it perform on low-end connections compared to high-end connections and how will it affect gameplay?

Mark Frohnmayer: Like TRIBES 1, performance should be good across almost any connection (28.8 or better). Obviously high end connections with low latency and low packet loss will present a smoother game experience to the user, but we're working on minimizing the ways that affects gameplay - by weapon design and the generally longer range nature of TRIBES combat, as well as extensive use of client-side prediction and interpolation

Viva la HPBs! Tribes 2 is currently scheduled for release later this Fall for the PC, with a Mac version hopefully very close behind.
