Map-making tools in the works for Tribes: Ascend


All is not lost

The team behind Tribes: Ascend have no more major updates planned for the game in the foreseeable future as they focus development on their MOBA, Smite. All is not doomed for the frantic first-person shooter community though as High-Rez Studio is looking to bring in map-making tools to the game.

"The one thing we’re going to be working on next is a path for users to basically add their own maps,” CEO Todd Harris told Rock, Paper, Shotgun. “We just feel like it’s at a good point to have users maintain it. We feel that it’s a complete experience, and we want to give users the tools to add their own maps – versus, say, us adding more guns that wouldn’t benefit [the experience].”

The exact specifics of how and what these tools would entail weren't given, but Todd did mention in his interview that work has started toward an SDK. Todd also hopes to have these tools released within the next six months.
