With the open beta for Tribes: Ascendgoing strong, Hi-Rez Studios announced today that the free-to-play first-person shooter has secured an April 12 release date.
To go alongside this news, the team put together a parody trailer titled "Llama Island" that should look very familiar to those of you who keep up with game trailers. The video is pretty terrific and fans of Tribes ought to get a kick out of it.
Hi-Rez COO Todd Harris sets it up for newcomers: "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."
