The first game to really take away any pretence to a life I had was the original Tribes. I therefore look with hope on Tribes 2 that it may erase the faults of the original and build upon its good points. Well Ga-Source have an article looking at the changes that are being made, by way of an interview with Tribes 2 Writer Blake Hutchins.
The article tells us that Tribes 2 is utilizing a completely redesigned engine that will add a substantial amount of polygons, so that the immersive factor and detail levels are far greater than in the original title. Blake Hutchins says, "The new terrains are so far advanced over the old ones that they alone will push Tribes 2 radically beyond Tribes 1 gameplay" Hutchins continues "In addition, environmental effects like water and fog will also make dramatic differences in gameplay, since they permit more stealth-based strategy." Its essential reading for fans of team based gameplay.
