Tribes: Ascend Release Date and Parody Trailer

Last week at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, Hi-Rez Studios announced that Tribes: Ascend will be released on 12th April 2012. It is currently in Open Beta.

Tribes: Ascend is a fast paced sci-fi FPS for the PC. Hi-Rez Studios also released a parody trailer titled “Tribes Ascend – Llama Island.” Which can be seen above.

“Tribes is all about speed and movement,” explained Todd Harris, Hi-Rez Studios Chief Operating Officer.“In fact the community uses the term llama to refer to a player moving too slowly, like a plodding llama.  So this video demonstrates the perils of trying to capture a flag while going too slow.  The outcome is predictable but no less tragic.”

The trailer is also similar in style to the original Dead Island official announcement trailer which you can see below.

All player progress in Beta will carry over to the release build. Anyone interested in trying Tribes: Ascend can create an account and download the game from http://www.tribesascend.com without the need for a beta key.

The game is fun and all but if you don’t spend any money on it expect to be playing long hours to level up and get a few items. I haven’t played it much recently but I am nearly level 18 or 19 I think.
