Starsiege: Tribes Set for Revival with Quake Wars Mod

Miss the glory days of Starsiege: Tribes? Fallen Empire didn't do it for you? You might want to check out Tribal Wars.

Enemy Territory: Quake Wars developer Splash Damage has always stated that a Tribes mod would be a good fit for the game's ski-friendly engine, and now a modding team is taking the next step. Though the following video represents early work, captured with a jittery FRAPS, the potential is exciting.

The project is currently in the early phases, with a public beta still "a while off." The team is initially planning to replicate a scaled-back version of the team-based multiplayer shooter, with a single armor class and simplified inventory stations. Check out some additional screenshots and concept art while you wait.

      Looks awesome. The folks behind it are bent on reproducing Tribes and it looks like they're doing a decent job. Legions was never intended to be a Tribes clone.

        Things move along slowly, but it has promise. I still think it was an utterly retarded idea making the move to open beta so quickly, current build would have been a much better choice...

        Also, where the fuck are my aussie dedicateds?

      Don't know, but I hated what they did with the jetpack in the beta.
