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.

Hi-Rez Studios announced that Tribes: Ascend has been downloaded 1.2 million times since its launch on April 12, 2012.

“We’re thrilled that over 1 million gamers have discovered the fast-paced and skill-based gameplay of Tribes," said Todd Harris, Hi-Rez Studios Chief Operating Officer. “It is truly the player support of the title that has driven the population growth and fuels our team to deliver updates.”

Hi-Rez Studios also announced that over 110,000 people have joined Tribes: Ascend via the recently introduced friend referral system.  

“We see the community expanding primarily thru positive word of mouth," continues Todd.  “Since release we’ve already recognized seven players who have each individually referred over 500 new people to Tribes: Ascend.  The game’s success allows us to give back to the community through free DLC updates, tournament events and expansion into new markets in coming months.”

Tribes: Ascend has received three free DLC updates to date and has outlined a summer schedule for tournaments that include over $30,000 in cash and prizes for players.
