Tribes: Ascend has been updated with new features “You may view available and earned badges, as well as accolades and general stats, through the Profile menu”, maps “Team Deathmatch map has been added (Outskirts)” and perks “Two new perks have been added”. The game is in open beta which means anyone can now play and try out the game for free.
Server Downtime: The Tribes Servers are expected to be down for a number of hours on 5th March while the patch is deployed. Watch the Server Status on the game loader for the latest availability information.
On the 24th 22nd February, Tribes: Ascend will leave closed beta and enter open beta however the game won’t launch officially until later this year. The game has started out well and developer Hi-Rez has made many improvements during the closed beta, which CEO Todd Harris says “exceeded expectations” with over 300,000 players.
The open beta is now available. I thought it was on Friday but it turns out its today. Servers are currently offline but you can download the latest patch or download the whole game if you are new to Tribes: Ascend while you wait.
