is a first-person, 3D shooter set in the Starsiege Universe which pits different warring tribes against each other. This action shooter focuses on cooperative multiplayer gaming. You can use the single-player training missions to develop the skills required to become a full-fledged warrior, but the real heat of TRIBES radiates from multiplayer combat between 2 to 32 players connected over the Internet or LAN.
Instead of trying to save the galaxy in a single-player quest, you are part of a tribe whose members must work together to survive battles with competing tribes. These battles can be as simple as destroy the enemy “tribe” or as complex as detailed missions with multi-task objectives. Each tribe has its own battlefield leader with a satellite view of the entire battlefield. Depending on the status of the tribe’s radar and sensor systems, the Commander can monitor both enemy and friendly troop positions.
Additional multiplayer features include Personal Voice Commands for sending pre-recorded messages in your own voice to your comrades, all the while blasting away at the enemy. Other general features in TRIBES include customizable “skins” and logos for each tribe, weather systems, vast worlds and endless terrain, motion-capture animation, and seamless integration between interiors and exteriors.
