"100+ players" battling in the same map. It's a PvP MMO.
It's called Tribes Universe and exists because they "can't transform" Global Agenda to support "large scale fighting." It's a "significant rewrite" or two.
Hi-Rez announced on the Global Agenda forum that they now own the Tribes license and will be developing a PvP-focused MMO that they're calling Tribes Universe. "We can’t transform Global Agenda to a large scale battle format but since we liked this concept a lot, we decided to create a new game based on large scale fighting," said Hi-Rez.
"In order to develop the new game many significant steps had to be taken, including: A significant rewrite to the unreal engine servers to allow for 100+ players to be fighting in the same map, a new UI system that is more efficient, a different implementation of character visuals, a new terrain system, etc."
Global Agenda will continue to be supported by the studio but Tribes Universe is their new primary focus. “Alpha testing will begin at the start of the year (about 3 months from now) and Global Agenda players with level 50 characters will have priority in entering Alpha and Beta testing," they said.
