More Tribes 2 Stuff
5:32 PM | Charles George | Comment on this story

New information about Dynamix' upcoming shooter Tribes 2 continues to surface. Vgames has scored a short interview with producer David Georgeson. The interview covers the basics of what to expect from this highly anticipated shooter:

Ronen: What are the main new graphics features of Tribes 2, and what are the system specs currently required to achieve 30 frames per second?

Dave: I won't be releasing minimum specs until after we go Beta, at the very least. I don't want to set expectations on that issue until after we do our optimization passes. New graphics features? Well...this is a completely new engine, designed for hardware acceleration only. That means that it's fully up to speed compared to other engines you see, yet it's still arguably the best indoor/outdoor engine out there. Storm fronts, dynamic lighting, detail textures, etc are all in there and more stuff is forthcoming.

Next on the table, there are two new screen shots at Tribes 2 Players. There are also three new screen shots of Tribes 2 in action at our CGA parner Stomped's web site - beware the ascerbic comments below them, however.
