If you have never played a Tribes title before, imagine a very fast-paced FPS where players are literally flying around the maps at various speeds, airborne as a result of jetpacking, ski jumping by using the terrain, or a combination of the two. Most of the maps are absolutely gigantic, but the extreme mobility allowed by the jetpack and skiing mechanics makes the extreme map sizes both necessary and welcome. A few of the maps are remakes of classic Tribes maps, and the rest are new. There are four game modes: Capture the Flag, Team Deathmatch, Capture and Hold (territory control) and Arena. Only CTF and Team Deathmatch are available to players below Rank 8.
