27 New Tribes 2 Screenshots
8:20 AM | Charles George | Comment on this story

PC.IGN.COM and GameSpot have both posted numerous screen shots (17 and 10 respectively) from an early alpha build of the first-person shooter Tribes 2. These images show off Tribes 2's amazing graphics, weapons, buildings, character animation and the game's recently revamped terrain system. GameSpot had this to say about what was missing in the alpha:

"Some remaining issues with the current build is that it doesn't let you fiddle with any of the control or graphics options, and the game runs at a very low frame rate even on a high-end Pentium III with a GeForce 2 GTS card. Naturally, Dynamix hasn't yet optimized the game's graphics, so some performance issues are to be expected. Also missing from the build is a number of vehicles"
How about the Mac version? In a recent email to IMG, Dave Georgeson of Dynamix assured us that "if we can get time to do it, we will do it. But we have to get the game done first." Not a resounding yes, but at least Dynamix is keeping the Mac platform in mind. Tribes 2 is due late this Fall for PC.
