Free Downloads of Tribes and Tribes 2

Posted by simoniker on Tuesday May 04, @03:28PM
from the wait-around dept.
James Cho writes "Starsiege: TRIBES (typically known as "Tribes 1") and Tribes 2 for the PC have been released for free download via FilePlanet by Vivendi Universal Games [also try Tribes 2 BitTorrent link or several mirrors provided by TribalWar commenters]. The two games stand as pioneers of the outdoor combat sub-genre of first person shooters and of all multiplayer games, influencing Halo and UT2004 among other games. Tribes 1 was the first multiplayer-only shooter, whereas Tribes 2 extended the core unique elements of its predecessor to a greater scale and depth. With this [previously mentioned on Slashdot] free release, VUG is stirring up anticipation for the release of the third Tribes game, Tribes: Vengeance." You'll need to enter a form to get a CD key to play Tribes 2 online.

Wow, that's awesome. The Tribes series really stands apart from most FPS games: unique weapon balance; fundamentally different movement with the jetpack; just huge playing fields. UT's CTF mode took a few nice steps in that direction, and UT2004's Onslaught mode takes a few more, but it's really not the same.

Very cool! I like this trend of giving away old games to promote new ones.

I tried Tribes when it first came out, didn't like it. But I think I'll give Tribes 2 a look-see. There isn't a monthly fee or anything, right?

Looks like some 8 year old boys figured it out...

First you get an acount for fileplanet, Remmber all your details like zip code country and stuff. next thing go to http://www.fileplanet.com/promotions/tribes2_cgw/ and not any other link.

then there is the box that you need to fill your details! fill the details from your acount in Fileplanet if you wrote in you fileplanet acount your city is 'abc' then also write it in the form.
if it asks you to verify email do it and then you get an email! after that press in that email verify.

then try again.

It worked for my , just fill the aplication like in your fileplanet acount and you should get the cdkey not to your email but in the site. thanks to ilys for the working link just match your fileplanet acount to this cdkey form and it will work.

Yeah I couldn't get the key at first either. I emailed them, and they gave me the link I posted here.... So I filled in my info again and it finally gave me the key.

From the site...

Due to high demand, the limited Tribes 2 keys and download has become temporarily unavailable. FilePlanet is working with Vivendi Universal Games on getting more keys to distribute so check back to see if keys are available.
Laaaaaame. Lame... what, did the workers at the KEY FACTORY go on strike? I hadn't gotten around to d/loading my copy yet...

Anyone have a link to the download for Tribes 2(fileplanet or other hosting site)? I've got the key but now they've removed the ability to download Tribes 2.
