TRIBES 3: Rivals (Starsiege: Tribes 2024) is an upcoming first-person shooter from Prophecy Games, a subsidiary of Hi-Rez Studios, for Microsoft Windows, as part of the Tribes series. Aspects from previous Tribes games, such as jetpacks and skiing are featured in the game. Additionally, elements from Tribes: Ascend, including perks, weapons, and packs, have returned. Elements from Starsiege: Raiders have been included as well. Based on the name, it is possible that the game will take place in the same timeline as Tribes: Vengeance which is generally referred to as Tribes 3, or Prophecy Games is not aware that T:V is T3 and they are just making a new game. The game is available for purchase through Steam for $19.95 for the base edition, with more expensive premium editions including extra cosmetics also available.

Tribes 3: Rivals was the third in a series of pump-and-dump games announced by Prophecy Games. All further development of the game was put on hold on June 27, 2024[2] with the company promising to convert any money spent on this game to in-game currency of their recently released game Ultra Strikers, which was built off the bones of all three previous games.


The game was announced on the loading screen for the alpha of Starsiege: Deadzone on May 12, 2023. On November 22, 2023, a "Tribes 3: Rivals Playtest" was created on Steam[3]. A few days later on November 27, 2023, registration was opened for the alpha playtest. Two days later, an official Steam page was created for the game[4].



Tribes 3: Rivals features a class-based loadout system similar to Tribes: Ascend, featuring six classes. Each loadout specifies what type of armor the player has, along with what weapons and items they carry. Each loadout supports three in-hand weapons, one belt item such as grenades or mines, and a pack. Cosmetic items such as player and weapon skins can be purchased with real money.

The Light Armor is extremely fast and is best suited for flag capping and chasing. The Medium armor finds the balance between speed and survivability. The Heavy armor is extremely resilient and is unmatched in long range bombardment capabilities. It may be outfitted to fill Heavy on Flag or base destruction roles.

Game Modes and Maps

There are currently 5 game mode, Capture the Flag (7v7 and 16v16), Team Deathmatch, Shooting Range, Time Trial, and the tutorial. Capture the Flag with support for 64 man servers is planned for a future release.

Custom Matches and Content

While dedicated or private servers are unlikely, custom matches will be supported as they eventually were in Tribes: Ascend. Users will be able to create custom matches that offer different team sizes and weapon loadouts, custom modes that alter the game’s core physics such as gravity and player speed. Unlike in Tribes: Ascend, custom content will be supported, allowing users to generate their own content such as customized maps and environments.


To encourage diverse gameplay, various accolades are awarded for accomplishing objectives or protecting assets.


As XP is earned, the player will gain rank levels that are identifiable with an insignia on the scoreboard.
