Yes this is the closest we are going to get to PlanetSide 2 guys. There has been no news from Sony about the real PS 2 but seeing as PlanetSide was based upon Tribes then Tribes Universe is really really good news for us PS lovers :)

I just hope they do it right and not like the mess that is Global Agenda.

What I do find strange is that if they make this game good then there is not room for Global Agenda - seems strange that they chose to develop a game that would kill off their other "offering".

Cause I really would not have known about the PS2 that may or may not being developed by Sony would I now? DOH you idiot!

So anyway I am really hoping that this game can be the next Planetside style MMO. I realy do not have much faith in Sony doing anything good with the IP - there has been silence from them for that past year or so and the lack of development of the original apart from adding in the caves does not bode well. 

I am hoping this will be a cool title.

If you hadn't noticed, Planetside has gone down to the bare minimum of servers (one) with likely the lowest population that the game has seen in its history, and dropping. There's no financial gain in large scale development for Planetside anymore, but that holds no bearing on how Sony is developing PS2.

Yes I have played PS recently so I am aware of this Omali - thanks for that. 

I was referring to Sony having a very poor history with this MMO - they did not develop it originally, they barely added anything to the game. This give a major bearing on how Sony is developing PS2 if they even are. There was a twitter message over a year ago and then a email sent out to old players apart from that there has been nothing.

The point that I am making here is that PlanetSide was based on Tribes so Tribes Universe is most likely to be the next best thing to a "PlanetSide 2" we are likely to see. Not many people have faith in Sony on these forums. After seeing what they failed to do with PlanetSide I have zero faith in them making PlanetSide 2.

So again I will end with a positive note hoping that Tribes Universe is a really good title. Now please refrain from saying "yes but Sony is already making PlanetSide 2" and being sarcastic but actually making yourselves look like idiots.

my 2 cents - not a huge fan of Global Agenda because it lacked the MMO elements I like, but I have a lot more faith in HiRez than Sony. They actually listen to their customers rather than vague corporate platitudes.

I hope not. I liked PS because it was war. They f'ed it up with BFR's and splitting the world into different planets. When they handycapped indeviguality, thats when it started to die. Tribes is about...well... tribes skirmishing for control, or recourses, or whatever it is they fight over.

 

I hope its NOTHING like PS. I want tribes to play like tribes. Only larger.  Not PS, battfield, or GA.

Let's be honest, folks.  What do we know about Sony, and specifically, about Sony Online Entertainment (responsible for their MMO's, as well as that piss-poor, third-person corner-camping POS known as the SOCOM franchise)?

 

1) They (usually) release good games.  EQ, EQ:OA, PS, SWG, etc.

 

2) These games either launch as great games, or become great games shortly after launch (even SWG, with all its bugs at launch, was great once the bugs were fixed).

 

3) After bullet 2, they listen to whiners and absolutely decimate the game in question.  Whether it's by destroying game balance and adding absolutely idiotic things, screwing up features, or just completely redesigning and thereby destroying a game (as they did with SWG, and to a lesser extent, MxO after they acquired it).

 

With this knowledge, we can safely assume that they will launch PS2 as a great game, only to destroy it relatively soon afterwards.

 

At the same time, anyone that played Tribes knows that PS was, in every way that mattered, a persistent, larger-scale, Tribes (especially if you used the VS MAX units lol; it's why I went VS, zero learning curve while starting out by going with their MAXes, as I've been pwning noobs with jumping maneuvers for years).  As the TC says, we can certainly hope this game will take what PS did right, what the ORIGINAL Tribes (ideally shifter mod) did right, combining them, and taking it to the next level, all without jacking it up the way SOE did and will almost certainly do with PlanetSide 2.

Doubt it.. Hi Rez seems to be catering to the 9 yo, so i don't expect any real combat. They are going to take the silly little FPS MMO and pathetic questing into a wider universe....

Everyone knows how SoE F'ed up great game, and I hope I can try PS2 when it is in beta or released.

However, I also has concern on Hi-Rez simply because of Global Agenda, and mainly is game play balance.

I hope they will make Tribe Universe like Tribes but bigger and really MMO like, and not like GA.

I sure hope its not planetside 2, First of all because I have a hatred of SoE (Not to mention the pre-hacked hatred left over from being a SWG Vet), Second this game might just be able to bring something new to the playing field of Massive online multiplayer ( Insert the rest here ).

Errrr, actually I didnt know they were behind the Socom Franchise (Though it is only on the Playstation) , and second thats one of the only "shooter" games alot of people will play, it's alot of fun assuming you know how to play. (And no it does not include corner camping. I honestly think you let the nubs get the best of you on that one, especially with the third person view, corner campers dont last long.  Not to mention the recently put out Socom 4 is nothing like past Socom's such as 1 2 3 and combined assault.)  The rest of the bullets I completely agree with.

I would imagine that they would not want to damage their other titles, so they would be kind of obligated to at least try to develop an unadulterated Tribes experience.  Global Agenda might have some features that seem Tribesish to the uninformed masses that infest GA (read: jet packs), but it is nothing like Tribes.  Planetside on the other hand, did seem a bit closer to the original Tribes, only with more limited personal mobility.

My money would be on Firefall being a closer approximation to the original Tribes than the actual Tribes Universe/Ascend.  Red 5 has one of the lead programmers from Dynamix (Scott Youngblood) on their team, while as far as I know, Hi-Rez only has the rights to the franchise name and none of the original developers to keep the game on the right track.
