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.
