InstantAction lets you play games through your browser. They've acquired the rights to the Starsiege series and are releasing Tribes for browser play sometime in the future. Read more: http://blog.instantaction.com/2009/03/t ... ction.html

Some updates from the blog:

Quote:
I've got some information straight from the lead on the project:
  • GarageGames purchased the ownership of the Tribes IP (all Tribes games) from Activision/Vivendi late last year.
  • We do have the source code to the game, and the build has been updated with bug fixes
  • The build will be distributed through the website, but still playable as a standalone game.
  • The game will use the existing Master Server system that the original game used. We will provide a new master server address with the release.
  • The game is not compatible with version 1.11 but you should be able to play the same demos as recorded on previous versions
  • Mods and configs used in 1.11 will not be directly compatible, without at least minor changes, as the base game scripts have been cleaned up considerably by Andrew
  • The game does NOT have updated graphics, this was a PR misunderstanding. The game does support modern file formats (PNG textures, Zip files)
