TRIBES 3: Rivals Demo

A playable demo for TRIBES 3: Rivals is now available for Windows on Steam. Part of the Steam Next Fest, this is a time-limited chance to play the planned next installment in the beloved multiplayer shooter series. This post discusses the demo and the included game modes being highlighted. Word is: "Active Queues will cycle what is available between Arena, CTF 7v7, and CTF 12v12. Custom lobbies and training modes will also be accessible throughout Next Fest." Here's the Early Access Announcement Trailer saying Early Access begins "soon," along with an overview of the revival:
TRIBES 3: Rivals is a team-based first person shooter that elevates the genre with jetpacks, skiing, and class-based warfare.

Players ski, jetpack, battle, and race to capture the enemy team’s flag, all while ferociously defending their own. Players can choose from unique classes to customize their abilities, perks, and weapon loadouts, while moving across epic terrains from snow covered peaks to haunting deserts. Teamwork, tactics, high speed, and intense combat reign supreme in this rebirth of the world’s fastest shooter.

They need to remove Tribes from the name and absolutely remove the III. How can they say this is Tribes 3 when it plays nothing like 1 or 2? It just seems like an extension to Ascend. It's even more esports oriented than Ascend! Please, if you're going to put Tribes in the name, then at least name it Tribes: Ascend 2 so that it doesn't break my heart 😀

I wonder what the utility and abilities will be like in this game...

I tried to play The Finals the other day, and at first I was like, "Wow, nice a limited amount of weapons, no upgrades or modifications... This is right up my alley."
Then I saw the amount of items available... and was slightly less interested, because it was quite a bit, but still limited in comparison to a lot of other stuff out there.
Then I got into a game and realized everyone was playing the Light class with invisibility and submachine guns... so Sombra from OW basically.
Can't we just have a game where you shoot guns at each other? Why does there have to be hero abilities and 20 different kinds of nades/equipment?

There was a special mode going where everyone was playing the Heavy character in what was very close to a normal free-for-all deathmatch. That was much more enjoyable without the invisible players running around or needing to depend on teammates.

I just want a simple arena deathmatch game that people actually play.
The different equipment and roles was what made Tribes great tho, especially Tribes 2. In contrast, it seems like the recent attempts try too hard into making it just about skiing and spinfusers in small arena like areas, while neglecting all the other aspects that really made the series shine.

i'll say it again. they need to take skiing out of the game. that's hardcore shit that will turn away pretty much every newbie that dares dip his toes into this water.
That'd be like taking the cars out of GTA.

That'd be like taking the Pokemon out of Palworld.

Lol not sure if you forgot the /s but skiiing is literally the entire movement system of the series and what makes it a ton of fun traversing the map (other than the vehicles).

Never played it back in the day, I guess I got my fill of competing in arena FPS PVP games like Quake arena or Unreal Tournament which sadly are dead today. Then Fortnite came along, ate that lunch and vastly broadened the market.


Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride! - HT

I installed the playtest that was running on the weekends but never found any games to join.
The movement and handling in the tutorial brought back some good memories, though.
Would love to try this again with actual players online.
Do it!

How about 'no'?
It was a happy accident that became one of the defining aspects of the game. I don't remember ANY other game utilizing it, and once you got the hang of it, it become exhilarating.

Thats a hard NO. You take out skiing and you take out the main way to get your fat ass around the battle field. And it becomes like every other game. It is not hardcore and if you can't grasp it even though they have made it stupid easier, then tribes is not for you. I would rather tribes not be for everyone vs gutting it.

I was playing Tribes back in the day and I remember it as fast paced and fun. I’ve been playing the current one, testing, and somehow it feels less interesting, slower paced, empty… Perhaps there is less gravity now? The map is larger? I find this one boring. Games are so fast these days it’s hard to go backwards.

W-what? How is it "hardcore"? You literally just hold down a button. And how it works is literally in the name.

Even though it's scripted, the disc jump off of the heavy on the flag toss is epic.

Way above my skill level. Hard pass.

Dont take this personally K but that seems to be a problem with young gamers nowadays (I know, I sound like old grandpa). Yep, Tribes in any form is frustrating but the rewards of learning how to make a kill in 3 dimensional space is awesome. Unfortunately no one is going to bother to put in the time to learn This current version.

This IP's time has come and gone Bigcry
