Hi-Rez Studios Unveils the Next Tribes ®
ATLANTA - March 11, 2011 -- Today at the PAX East game festival, 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® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. Additional platforms are currently under consideration as well.

It will be Free To Play with microtransactions. Loadouts beyond a base armor and 2 weapons will be purchased with in game currency or real money.

Hey. This is the old Gooberman, but I couldn't login to that account. I have a day off, was sitting here thinking of what I could do, and I thought I might see if anyone still plays Tribes. Last time I gave it a shot, I found that my abilities had become quite atrophied.

I came by to see if the downloads were still available, and when I looked on the forums and saw this Tribes: Ascend business I had to say something. So here it is.

If this could bring back the community and the spirit of the game, that would be intense.

I sent you an email. You should get on xfire sometime.

I updated the original post with some new pictures. It's looking good.

That first concept art looks like the terrain's better suited for RTS. Even with jet packs, that's a lot of ground to cover.

Added some in-game screenshots from the alpha testing. It looks like they just dumped new player models into Global Agenda.
