About This Game

Tribes: Ascend is the world’s fastest shooter - a high-adrenaline, online multiplayer FPS with jetpacks, skiing, vehicles, and multiple classes. The classic shooter franchise Tribes has been played by well over 1 million people. With Tribes: Ascend, the franchise is reborn – fast-paced, vertical, acrobatic combat combined with class-based teamwork and stunning sci-fi visuals.

Key Features:

  • Skiing: A slow soldier is a dead soldier. By holding down space bar you remove friction and build momentum to traverse large maps, hunt down targets, and escape enemy territory at intense speeds.
  • Jetpacks: Total freedom of movement and aerial, dog-fight like combat.
  • Class-Based Combat: Unlock up to nine distinct classes, each with unique weapon loadouts and abilities.
  • Player Progression: As you play a class you gain experience which is used to unlock class-specific skills and perks. You can also share the xp gained while playing a favorite class to progress other classes.
  • Escalating Intensity: In each match you earn credits for shooting down enemies or supporting your team’s objectives. Use these match credits to upgrade base defenses, access vehicles, or call-in tactical strikes. The longer you play, the more chaotic the match becomes.
  • Vehicles: Pilot the powerful Beowulf tank, the speedy two-person Grav Cycle or the versatile flying Shrike.
  • Beautiful, Massive Battlefields: Wage war in a variety of open environments including frozen wastelands, sprawling cities, and jagged mountains.
  • Don’t Fight Alone: Friend-list allows you to link up with others and establish supremacy online
  • Free To Play... but not pay to win: All items affecting game play can be earned by playing the game itself. Players can purchase optional Tribes Gold to unlock classes more quickly and/or skills more quickly. Players will also be able to purchase cosmetic skins with Tribes Gold.
  • Spectator Mode: Highly-detailed spectator mode allows you to zoom in on your favorite players, view player data, and switch between action hot spots on the fly.

I've put over 1.4k hours in this game. I stayed when Hi-rez nixed the map making system. I stayed for years after Hi-rez said they would never update the game again. I stayed when hi-rez stopped reading the reports on cheaters. I stayed because I loved this game.

Now I have to jump through hoops to even log in because Hi-rez is too clueless to be able to make a working launcher. I'm done. I just can't anymore...

Bye Tribes. I will always love you.

Disclaimer: If you do not possess a functional Time Machine, this review is not for you.

Time Travelers! Welcome, I speak to you from the year 2015,
If you are reading this message then you didn't travel back enough, the game you are examining on this page is in the worst state at the time of the writing of this review.

Consider travelling back further in time to 2012, at that year Tribes was actually one of the best games out there.
Sadly, Hi-Rez abandoned it for SMITE. and I am sure that is doubly humorous to you, seeing how you come from the future and you know how much of a huge failure that stupid game turned out to be.

Move along.

It pains me to post this review, but the game has been completely abandoned and is receiving no new content or patches whatsoever.

This is due to the developers being incompetant and jumping on the MOBA bandwagon because it's more profitable.

Really hoping Hi-Rez sells the IP to another company.
