Hi-Rez Studios today announced the official release of Tribes: Ascend.
The sci-fi multiplayer shooter has completed Beta testing and is now a live PC game available for digital download. The game features jetpacks, skiing, vehicles, team-based gameplay, and graphics using Unreal 3 technology.
The Tribes: Ascend release build includes 9 playable classes, 5 game-modes, and 16 maps. Recent additions include the CTF map Raindance, as well as a new game-mode called Capture and Hold. The Release build also includes a preview of the Custom Server functionality that will soon be available to players.
“For the past 15 months, we’ve had a very passionate dev team working hard toward this goal”, said Todd Harris, Hi-Rez Studios COO. “Along the way some publishers told us modern gamers couldn’t handle an FPS that was fast-paced and skill-based. We believe otherwise. Players seem to agree since we’ve had well over 500,000 join our Beta.”
The game is available for download directly from the developer at www.tribesascend.com
