Tribes 2 in Alpha
1:54 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

In more news from the TribalWar web site, Dynamix's Dave Georgeson has posted the information that the long-awaited Tribes 2 is now alpha. This means that while it may not be optimized or bug-free, most of the features have been implemented. Next up is the beta phase, which will include heavy testing and gameplay tweaking. Here's a clip from Georgeson with some specifics:

How does the Alpha look? Well...Alphas are sad critters. They're typically full of bugs, slow as heck, and with a ton of placeholder special effects.

Ours is no different. However, all the major functionality is in and we've finished creating the list of things we need to do in order to make it shine. We'll start implementing those now and in a few weeks you should be able to see some major improvements in the screen shots.

As far as beta testing goes...we'll be announcing a Beta Plan soon. Probably a week or two. I'll announce it far and wide when it becomes available.

As noted earlier today, the beta will likely not be a large open beta (a la Q3A), instead a smaller, focus group of around 1000 testers. No word yet if the Mac version will be included in the beta, but we will let you know once more information is released.
