    ACHTE DEINE GEGNER. ES SIND AUCH NUR MENSCHEN.

    Das ultimative Multiplayer-Online-Vergnügen ist da. “Starsiege Tribes” von Sierra. Amerikas Spiel des Jahres als deutsche Version – exklusiv bei CMGA. Du setzt ales auf eine Karte, um die Welt zu erobern. Du wirst Verbündete haben, aber auch jede Menge Feinde – und sie werden alle wie du aus Fleisch und Blut sein. Du wirst Freude, Schmerz und Leid erfahren – aber du bist eine Kämpfernatur und lässt dich nicht besiegen. Lerne die Gefahr bei “Starsiege Tribes” kennen, geh auf Tauchstation beim “Projekt SARAC” oder erobere den Weltraum bei “Rumble in the Void”. Das CMGA-Einsatzpaket OOI wird dich in viele neue Welten entführen. In Welten, die dir zeigen werden, wie wichtig es ist, Freunde zu haben. Denn wer hier alleine spielt, wird auch mit großer Wahrscheinlichkeit alleine sterben.

Inside Flaps:
    NO MAN IS AN ISLAND.

    Got Weapons? Standard-issue Blasters and Chain Guns. But also Disk Launchers, Mortar Guns and Sniper Rifles for long-distance mayhem. Even a Targeting Laser that "paints" enemy targets for your teammates.

    Innovative Missions. Deathmatch. Capture the Flag. Last Tribe Standing. Defend & Destroy. Towers.

    Unprecedented Internet Play. All you need is Internet access. Everything else is click and go.

    Flying Vehicles. Hop in. Scout Flyers for Recon. Light and Heavy Personnel Carriers for troop transport and gunship-like attacks.

    Town-Down Commander Screen. Set waypoints (attack, defend, repair) and orchestrate precision attack and defense strategies. Even a TV screen to see what your teammates see.

    Voice Communications. "Come get some." Pre-set, keyboard-activated messages go well with Tribes "ultra-realistic" animations.

    Adjustable Zoom. "Scoring a kill from miles away is a great feeling indeed." - PC Accelerator

    Choose Your Armor. Light. Medium. Heavy. Upgrade with packs that boost everything from ammo count to shields to teammate repair. Even carry remote cameras or turrets inside enemy bases.

    Armor Jet. "Using the pack for exploration and attack is a thrill to behold." - Next Generation Online

    Customization. "From skins to actual logos, groups of players will have more control over their clan presence than in any other game." - Next Generation

    True Terrain Landscapes. "Gone are the limitations of an enclosed environment. Instead, players can explore cavernous buildings as well as vast exteriors that stretch for miles, creating totally new gameplay paradigms." - Next Generation

    Finally there's something new in the world of first-person shooters. TRIBES is a revolutionary action game (set in the Starsiege Universe) designed from the ground up to maximize the multiplayer gaming experience for up to 32 players. Enough single-player missions to get your boots wet, then it's all teamwork.

    Because no man is an island.
