Default Tribes: Ascend

Woooooooohoo. Great news for those of us that have been waiting for a sequel to Tribes

Hi-Rez Studios announces Tribes: Ascend + Debut Trailer

Quote:
We know that lots of people were waiting patiently for a new Tribes game. Hi-Rez Studios released an announcement trailer for Tribes: Ascend, proclaiming the return of the sci-fi, online multi-player shooter franchise Tribes.

The Tribes collection of games have been played by well over 1 million people.
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.

Hi-Rez Studios acquired Tribes in October, 2010 and revealed plans to develop a massive scale, persistent world shooter called Tribes Universe. Today’s announcement confirms that long-term franchise strategy, but Hi-Rez has chosen to first deliver the single-purchase, digital download Tribes: Ascend this calendar year.

“Before Halo, before Modern Warfare, and before Battlefield, there was Tribes.”, says Todd Harris, Hi-Rez Studios COO. “Tribes fans appreciate the game’s essence - athletic FPS combat combined with teamwork and strategy. As we began development of Tribes Universe, we focused first on capturing that essence – refining and modernizing iconic elements like jetpacks, skiing, and vehicles. We’ve had tremendous fun play-testing and realized the potential of a multiplayer focused title ahead of Tribes Universe. The community has been waiting for a multi-player shooter that is the modern successor to T2. Tribes: Ascend is that game.”

Tribes: Ascend is targeted for release in late 2011 as a digital download on Windows PC and the Xbox 360. Additional platforms are currently under consideration as well.

No Tribes fan liked Tribes:V. It felt more UT then Tribes. It felt slow and clunky vs how Tribes felt. The MP portion (which is the reason to play tribes) was just bad as well.

I still to this day have Tribes 1 installed.
