Starsiege TRIBES

History

Company Line

Game 2:

The second game in the Starsiege Universe Starsiege TRIBES made its debut this year at E3 in Atlanta. TRIBES is the first first-person shooter with a multiplayer, squad-based focus. It takes place a millennium after Starsiege and focuses on infantry-level squad warfare between armored warriors who struggle over planets on the fringes of the known universe. Aside from a variety of weapons, vehicles, huge landscapes, intricate base interiors, and mission types, TRIBES also features a unique "Commander" role whereby one or more players assumes a leadership role. Using the commander screen, players are able to assign commands to other players on their team, bringing a new level of cooperation, organization and real-time strategy to team play.

"Starsiege TRIBES is going to take multiplayer team gaming to heights only dreamed about previously. I can't wait to finish the game so I can play it." - Scott Youngblood, TRIBES Designer
