[PCG] Tribes: Ascend entering open beta on Friday, adding Arena Deathmatch and new maps

Good news, everyone! Starting this Friday, February 24 at 12 p.m. EST, Tribes: Ascend will leave closed beta and open its free-to-play doors to the greater public. The game won’t launch officially until later this year, but with F2P games, the difference between an open beta and a “launch” is debatable. Perhaps the beta comes with an asterisk acknowledging that bugs happen, things get nerfed, and there’s still polishing to do, but Ascend is already pretty shiny. It started strong, and developer Hi-Rez has made substantial improvements during the closed beta, which CEO Todd Harris says “exceeded expectations” with over 300,000 players.

I've really been enjoying this one lately, it's just a breath of fresh air from all the slow and gritty modern military shooters we've been getting as of late. So it's good to see the game making some progress. smile.gif

Can't wait for this.

Totally agree with your comment man! I grew up with Quake and Unreal.

I've been playing. Amazing. Seriously. It's a game that actually requires skill unlike others. A game with big maps, jet-packs and a ski function. Me like. thumb.gif

I actually found the beta to make the gameplay.. clunky for a lack of better terms. Hitboxes are much larger than they were in Tribes 2 / Tribes Vengeance (and yes, I know there a deep rooted hatred in the Tribes community for Vengeance, too bad, it was / is fun as hell), movement is not nearly as fluid, it's slow and hulky. There is no real teamplay, at least none that I've seen.... idk it just doesn't click for me. Tribes 2 and Vengeance were so much fun, even with their beyond sub par graphics to date still outclass Ascend imo.

I'll await the final release though. Since it is F2P, well more like F2P but Pay to Win, I'll just give it a whirl once it's released I guess.

It's actually pretty fun, it's come a long way since alpha and it's good to see HiRez support it very well (unlike their other game).
I may actually look into picking up the comp play although I haven't played much since Alpha/early beta.

I judge a game by it's beta to an extent, but release != beta by any means. Plus, since Hirez actually seems quite involved with the community I'm sure they'll iron out all the kinks. smile.gif

Careful, you might get flamed pretty hard for that, haha. Tribes came before Halo... and Halo actually took some design elements from the original. Now, the medium SF (spinfusor) in this new game definitely looks like the battle rifle, which many were complaining about... but Tribes is ANYTHING but a Halo remake. You can't really compare the two, unless you mention what Halo borrowed. However, you'd have to go back to 1998 to know that.
