Tribes 2 reaches Alpha form

Tribes 2 - which, you may recall, was actually initially scheduled to be released around now - has finally gone into Alpha-testing, according to Dave "QIX" Georgeson, Senior Producer on the project. Posting on the Tribalwar.com messageboards, Georgeson mentioned that like all Alpha versions, the current build is slow and contains many placeholders, but he seems confident that most issues can be dealt with quickly and that a Beta-test program will be announced within the next few weeks.

The race to create the next generation of outdoors action-games always seemed to be a two-horse affair between Tribes2 and Halo, but with Halo developer Bungie recently being purchased by Microsoft, adding to the delay of the game which was previously being caused by shifting goalposts in their game design, the Tribes 2 dev team seemingly have a little more breathing space. The game is expected in shops in mid-Autumn; as for Halo, nobody even knows what year it will be released in, let alone what quarter.
