Tribes: Ascend beta opens up on Friday with new content

Recommended Videos

It’s fair to say that when the Destructoid PC team was talking about its most exciting upcoming PC games in 2012, Tribes: Ascend was one of the games everyone was most looking forward to. Some of us have been playing in the closed beta for a few weeks now but we’ll all get the chance to play on Friday onwards when the beta goes open.

From 5:00pm GMT onwards, beta access will be open for all to play and there’s a raft of improvements and additions to the game for existing players. Hi-Rez studios is promising four new maps, including two for a new game mode, Arena Deathmatch. Also included are new items for the soldier class, new default suits for Doombringer and Brute classes, as well as a raft of bug fixes and balance patches. 

I know I’m going to be downloading the game on Friday for a try over the weekend. Hopefully the PC team will be able to give you our impressions real soon. Tribes: Ascend has a big legacy to live up to but I’m hopeful it’ll turn out really well; my jetpack-fueled mid-air death sprees depend on it!
