Tribes is referred to as an FPS-Z, a first person shooter that runs quite heavily on the Z axis. That means that movement is just as important as actually shooting is. In Tribes, you're given access to a jetpack, as well as a ski button. Skiing down a hill helps build speed, and your jetpack helps lift you up into the air, these mechanics working together allow you to fly up and around at high speeds and make it a challenge for your opponent to hit you.
The game also features a variety of vehicles, an array of weapons, and different armor classes that you can choose from. If you've played the game Tribes Ascend, you'll have a pretty good grasp over this game as well!
