The lights are on
Gamers can expect to see some spectacular deaths in Hi-Rez Studios' upcoming free-to-play shooter Tribes: Ascend.
The multiplayer-based shooter gives you all kinds of opportunities to kill with style, as emphasized by the new trailer below. Tribes: Ascend is also the first FPS to be selected for inclusion by the North American Star League, an eSports broadcaster, and will be featured as a promotional title throughout its third season.
“As developers, we are excited to offer a fast paced, high skill-ceiling shooter for this generation of gamers.” says Todd Harris, Hi-Rez Studios COO. “Tribes: Ascend and NASL are a great fit in terms of dedication to competition and high-quality, high-engagement content.”
The game is currently scheduled for release next year, but eager fans can sign up for the closed beta through the official website right now.
This brings me back to the days of playing tribes in class and switching to microsoft word when the teacher walked by.
Glad to see the old school Tribes feel still seems to be intact. Momentum was everything, and timing your disc launcher shot to hit someone perfectly was always satisfying.
never played the original. this looks great.
The old tribes games were fun for a while, but the maps were so bland and the game got really repetitive. Not really anything I'm interested in playing again, doesn't look much different from the old titles.
I hope it won't cost a fortune to play like a lot of free to play game models do.
So if its free to play then do you pay for weapon upgrades and stuff?
