Starsiege TRIBES & TRIBES 2 for Free

Sierra sends word of plans to release both Starsiege Tribes and TRIBES 2, the groundbreaking first-person shooter and its follow-up, for free. Here's the deal:

Vivendi Universal Games announced today that it will be distributing the videogames Starsiege®: Tribes® and Tribes 2 for free on a special-edition DVD-ROM bundled with the newsstand edition of the June issue of Computer Gaming World magazine and online via FilePlanet.com. The giveaway is meant to celebrate the fourth-quarter release of Tribes: Vengeance, the next installment in the venerable Tribes franchise of PC action games.

The special versions of these games will be available in the June issue of Computer Gaming World, which will hit newsstands starting May 4, 2004, and will be simultaneously accessible for online download through FilePlanet.com.

Released in 1998, Starsiege: Tribes was the first major online-only first-person action game. The combination of team-based gameplay, expansive outdoor terrains, multiple play modes, customizable characters, and controllable vehicles created a game that was an instant hit among fans and press alike. Its sequel, Tribes 2, was released in 2001 and further refined the genre, winning numerous industry awards. Together, both games have sold nearly a million copies worldwide.

After Sierra laid off everyone at this talented company a lot of these guys tried their best to make a go at being their own developers. After a couple of years though there are only a few of them left such as Bravetree, Pipeworks, Tesseraction and Buzz Monkey.

Also you cannot forget about GarageGames and the great work that they continue to do to support indepedent games and game development, although technicly they left well before Sierra axed the prized cow that was Dynamix.
