In an attempt to promote the released of Tribes: Vengeance, the biggest company in the world, Vivendi, has decided to release the original Tribes as well as the sequal as a free download. Unfortunately they decided to team up with Fileplanet as the distributor, a website infamous for its hefty queuing system when it comes to downloading files.

If you have the patience to wait in line or happen to have an account on fileplanet, then go right on and download the marvelous Starsiege: Tribes and Tribes II.

UPDATE
The Swedish gaming site Fragzone has setup two fast mirrors of the games. So now there is no excuse, Starsiege: Tribes and Tribes II. Keep in mind that you will still have to register at Fileplanet if you intend to play online.
