Tribes 2 Shots, Interview
9:46 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

VoodooExtreme has scored three great-looking new screen shots from Dynamix of their upcoming title Tribes 2. Dynamix is making sure the game will not be your standard shooter, by providing impressive multiplayer team capabilities like built-in voice communications and the ability to have a commander organize your team.

Our affiliate CGA site Stomped also has a new interview with Dave Georgeson, producer at Dynamix. The Q&A covers a variety of topics, including vehicles, differences from the original Tribes, and modem play. Here's an excerpt about how easy it will be to form and manage teams (called Tribes) in the game:

Stomped: What options are available to Clans/Tribes in Tribes2?

Dave Georgeson: Tribes are a LOT easier to create and join now. Creating a tribe is as easy as hitting the "Create Tribe" button and filling in the blanks. A rudimentary Tribe page is then created and the tribe is added to the Tribal Index. Anyone wanting to know info about that tribe can just look through the index, click on the tribe name and go to that web page to see the info therein. Of course, folks can still set up their own external pages, and then put a link on the "internal" page so folks can find their external page.

Also, tribes can accept/decline new members (and can signify that they're not accepting new members, if desired, to prevent spammage), and the tribes automatically get their own T2 forum and chat area for Tribal members to communicate in.

All-in-all, it should result in a very tight community where tribes are much more aware of each other than in T1.

This sounds like a great feature for people to be able to easily hook up and start fragging as a team. The website/forum ideas are especially impressive. Check out the rest of the interview for more from Georgeson on the progress of Tribes 2.

The game should hopefully be released later this year. Dynamix has said multiple times that they are hoping to have a Mac version soon after the PC build. We'll keep you posted if anything new regarding the Mac version is announced.
