(Closed Beta signup) I will have to admit I never really played this genre of game until I tried Mars Wars (link), which is now dead and of course, a poor man’s PlanetSide clone called by some. And yes, I never played the original Tribes as well. But Mar Wars really got me hooked, making me clock around 6 hours a day on that game. It will just be natural for me to eventually try out Tribes: Ascend and PlanetSide 2.
IGN posted an awesome footage of the game, and it is being narrated by a staff over at Hi-Rez Studios, the developer of the title. It loos seriously amazing, and I love to see hundreds of players swarm over the maps and seeking kills. The traditional room-based MMOFPS is just… too tiny for me. I think I am getting a little claustrophobic in terms of land size in games.
Tribes: Ascend is Free to Play with players able to purchase the game one a one time fee fro some perks and a VIP status. There will be a Cash Shop as well in the future. Closed Beta begins November 4.
