The Tribes revival is upon us. Tribes III: Rivals is officially “coming soon” to early access as revealed via a new trailer dropped this week by developer Prophecy Games.
While the early access timing is a bit ambiguous, those itching to get into the game can jump in right now as part of a new demo released for Steam’s Next Fest. The demo will be available to play between February 5 and February 12.
A number of new game modes and maps have been added to Tribes III: Rivals over the course of its last few playtests, with the developer adding 7v7 and 12v12 CTF, Training modes, and Custom lobbies. New maps added include Katabatic, Wavemist, DryDock, Dangerous Crossing, and Torment: Traverse.
Tribes III: Rivals is a 5v5 multiplayer shooter featuring the fast-paced and action-packed combat that has been the series’ pedigree since the release of Starsiege: Tribes all the way back in 1998. The most recent release in the series was Tribes: Ascend, which was developed by Hi-Rez Studios and launched in 2012. Prophecy Games, the folks behind this latest entry in the series, was originally a subsidiary of Hi-Rez, but spun off as an independent studio in 2020.
Tribes III: Rivals is coming to PC sometime in Q1 2024.
