Ooh: Tribes Goes To War (Again)


Gawd-blast Kotaku, nabbing a thoroughly PC exclusive like this. Get off our land, yous. Bah. Their colour scheme's still hideous, mind.

Anyway, this time around, they've got games-in-browsers types InstantAction to reveal they'll soon have the original Starsiege: Tribes up for free, browserly play.

No doubt everyone will immediately and churlishly say "not Tribes 2 then? Aw", but the return of this venerable team shooter is a happy surprise nonetheless. Especially as it's a revamped version, with sparklier graphics and better modding support. It's the only riposte GarageGames need to comments that their recent free browser FPS Fallen Empires: Legions owes a little too much to Tribes, really.

So, given we already have Quake Zero, are we about to stumble into a hold trend of classic shooters being reborn inside browser windows? The original Unreal Tournament? Call of Duty 1? Counter-Strike? Jus' throwing ideas out there.
