Just wanted to make a quick post about an old fossil we found that is still alive! That fossil is Starsiege: Tribes. We played Tribes around the same time it came out on December 23, 1998. Tribes was a game changer and very ahead of its time. It was fast paced, had jet packs, multiple game modes, a great community, 32 player online play, changeable gear, and a destroyable base! Tribes was a go to game for years. It didn’t have much of a single player, but multiplayer was phenomenal and made the lack of single player completely fine.
After 20 years Tribes is still alive. This should by itself should say how great of a game Tribes is. Recently, out of curiosity, we downloaded it, logged on, and surprisingly, games are still available to join that have people playing in them. Whats even better is that anyone can download it for free and play.
