'Tribes: Ascend' Gets Release Date

by Rainier on March 9, 2012 @ 5:41 a.m. PST

Tribes: Ascend, developed using the Unreal 3 engine, is being positioned as the multi-player successor to the much lauded Tribes 2 and a re-introduction of the franchise to the gaming world.

Tribes: Ascend is a new generation of AAA free online multiplayer shooter, incorporating classic Tribes elements such as fast-paced jetpack enabled combat, skiing, and vehicles, combined with teamwork and strategy, with servers currently located across North America, Europe, and Australia.

"Tribes is all about speed and movement," explains Todd Harris, Hi-Rez Studios Chief Operating Officer. "In fact the community uses the term llama to refer to a player moving too slowly, like a plodding llama.  So this video demonstrates the perils of trying to capture a flag while going too slow.  The outcome is predictable but no less tragic."

Tribes: Ascend is currently in Open Beta with over 400,000 players participating.  Hi-Rez has announced that all player progress in Beta will carry over to the release build.  Anyone interested in trying Tribes: Ascend can create an account and download the game, without the need for a beta key.
