Tribes With A Vengeance Announced

Not to be outdone by the PlanetSide announcement, Sierra has announced the development of Tribes With a Vengeance. Some of you may have played a little game called System Shock 2. Well, according to the press release, this latest installment of the Tribes franchise will be developed by the same company, Irrational Games. The release seems to indicate that Tribes is headed in a single player direction with an additional multiplayer aspect. While that seems to go against the whole purpose of Tribes, we're also witnessing the development of a single player Starcraft game with Ghost, so, who knows?

In Tribes: Vengeance’s single-player campaign, gamers become immersed in a roiling galactic thriller. Throughout the game, the player catches glimpses of other, interrelated stories that are unfolding behind-the-scenes. In addition, gamers are given the opportunity to experience the full scope of the single-player story through multiple viewpoints and characters. Powered by an enhanced version of the Unreal Engine, the world is brought to life with characters that have facial expressions and fully-realized personalities, vehicles that kick up dust as they pass by, and weapons that display spectacular effects.
