In what I hope is a continuing trend, both Tribes 1 and Tribes 2 are now available via a free download. A bittorrent link for Tribes 2 is here, and if you use that link – you will still need to fill out the Fileplanet form.
Tribes was a fantastic game and prior to EQ taking off I had many an evening getting totally throttled in that game, but enjoying every minute. If you have never seen it, its planetside save the uplinks and without the monthly fee. So enjoy.
