Tribal Wars is a team based multiplayer shooter modification that utilizes some of the team oriented aspects of its parent title, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, and combines it with equipment and weaponry found in titles such as Starseige: Tribes and Unreal Tournament. The game takes place in era far after Quake 4 where humanity has just recovered from a longstanding war against a formidable foe, but now find each other in conflict with one another; all vying for supremacy.
