Tribes: Ascend has been getting a lot of positive feedback from not only the gaming press, but also the community. After less than a month after it's release, Hi-Rez shares some footage of it's 2 upcoming maps and gameplay changes that they will be implementing.
The video shows off 2 new maps, as well as some new features and modifications that were requested by the community. "Tartarus" is a new Capture the Flag map with a giant dilapidated ship serving as it's central hub. "Hinterlands" is a new Arena map that has lush and colorful foliage, as well as deadly pools of acid. The level designers wanted to go for a more organic feel to these maps, and the strong color palettes and design elements incorporated into them really help push that forward.
