About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Vivendi Universal Games announced today that the company has forged a technology, marketing, and promotional relationship with ATI Technologies, the leading graphics card supplier, in support of the PC videogame Tribes:Vengeance, due to be released in the United States on October 5th.

The two companies will collaborate in efforts to showcase Tribes:Vengeance through advertising campaigns, special events, and online evangelism.

"Tribes:Vengeance takes full advantage of the latest and greatest graphics cards from ATI so it makes perfect sense to work closely with them," said Michael Pole, Executive Vice-President, Worldwide Studios, VU Games. "This holiday it'll be hard to beat the combination of Tribes' Vengeance Engine and ATI's graphics technology."

"ATI has been working closely with VU Games to enable the most intensive graphics experience imaginable in Tribes:Vengeance," said Andy Thompson, Director of Advanced Technology, ATI. "Tribes:Vengeance will bring high-definition gaming to life for end-users like never before."

In Tribes:Vengeance gamers become immersed in a roiling galactic thriller. Throughout the game, the player catches glimpses of myriad interrelated stories that unfold behind-the-scenes and is given the opportunity to experience the full scope of the single-player story through multiple viewpoints and characters. Utilizing the all-new Vengeance Engine powered by Unreal(TM) technology, the world is brought to life with characters that have facial expressions and fully-realized personalities, vehicles that kick up dust as they pass by, and weapons that display spectacular effects. Tribes:Vengeance will also build upon the Tribes series' legendary online multiplayer action by continuing to focus on team-oriented goals and fluid movement. Particular focus is being given to making Tribes:Vengeance easily accessible to the video game modification (MOD) community. Irrational Games and VU Games have worked together to ensure that Tribes:Vengeance's game modification tools are easily accessible and robust.
