I'd be pretty excited about T:A if I weren't vomiting all over my monitor every time I read 'spawn in loadouts' and '2 weapon limit'... :ill:

It looks like an interesting game, but it has very few similarities to Tribes.

I didn't play much T2, but that's what it reminds me of, the most. At least it looks to be pretty fast. T:V always felt awkward and bulky to me.

I need to try it to criticize it. The guy who plays is clearly a noob (in Starsiege Tribes).

And does anyone else think that the disc launcher's reload time is a bit too high? (compared to base)

By the way, that map in most of the videos, with the water and all the little islands? That's 'Crossfire'. It's their idea of a "port" of Broadside. :swim: :swim: :swim:

I'd imagine about like other current UE3 games. Minimum probably about like this:

CPU: Low-end Core 2 Duo or Athlon X2 5000+ or higher
RAM: 2GB
GPU: GeForce 8000 series or Radeon HD3000 series

That's just my estimate, mind you.

Tribes: Ascend will be supported by micro-transactions, your cash purchasing you cosmetic items, new weapons, and extra loadout slots. Global Agenda has only recently adopted the same model, and experience will help shape their decisions, but Todd describes the scheme as “analogous to League of Legends” and “horizontal in design”. The application of cosmetic items is obvious, but loadouts require some explanation. “A loadout consists of armour, two in-hand weapons, a melee weapon, a grenade belt, and a pack that might hold something, such as a cloaking device.” Todd envisages that loadouts will be purchased wholesale, but “you could potentially get variations of items in your loadout as an additional micro-transaction.” Hi-Rez expect everything outside of specific vanity items to be achievable by simply playing the game. “Our philosophy is if they affect the game, they don’t have to be purchased.”


Sounding pretty good to me. We'll see if the gameplay holds up, though.

reminds me of some facebook games where you can waste a year to achieve it or pay 5$ to buy it.
As long as the disc launcher kills, I don't bother with new weapons
