A post to the
by Vivendi Universal's Adam "Menzo" Kahn has word on what's
up for the multiplayer shooter sequel now that beta testing has begun,
predicting a single-player demo next month, with the full game's release
expected the month after:
Now that we've launched the multi-player beta,
what's next for Tribes: Vengeance?
- We have a single-player demo that will be launching some time in September.
I'm not going to get more specific than a month right now.
- The team is feverishly working to finish the game. There are a lot of people
not getting much sleep in Canberra right now - I'm sure they can use all the
support/thanks/kudos/bug reports/beer you can send their way
- We're currently planning to have the game at the World Cyber Games
Championships from October 7-10 in San Francisco. It should be a cool event.
We'll likely use the multiplayer beta in a tournament and give out some pretty
cool prizes (high-end CPUs and videocards). Expect Tribes: Vengeance-related
VIPs to be on hand to sign posters and other Tribes paraphanelia. Word on the
street is that we'll be making a limited edition T-shirt to give away that
should be pretty cool.
- Tribes: Vengeance will ship in early October worldwide
It's been a long road, but a great one. Shipping a game like this on time is a
HUGE accomplishment, and one that shouldn't be overlooked.
