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.

Great game, crappy company.

Since Hi-Rez loves to abandon their games and dedicated players, I abandoned them. I'll never give them my business again. I would advise others to save their money and boycott their games.

Hi-Rez found out that Smite is a money-printing machine so they just let this game rot. No one plays it anymore. It's dead.

Forever in our hearts.

Contrary to my experience, there seems to be a lot of people complaining about how this game is "dead", that there are no players anymore and that you will be somehow unable to install it using Steam.

I have had no problems whatsoever be they technical or player-wise.
The game even runs smoothly on my sub-par PC.
Game still looks good on absolute minimal settings.
Addictive high-speed gameplay.
Makes you feel like a badass speed demon.
A variety of weapons and classes to unlock, suiting any play style.
Projectile based weapons make every shot a gamble and you feel awesome when you land one.

Learning how judge where your projectiles will hit is extremely difficult.
You have to be able to think fast.
The enemy team is somehow always well-organized and skilled, while your own team is a just a bunch of scrubs.
At first you will get frustrated, but keep playing and you'll get better.

Overall, I love this game. It's unique and ridiculously fun. Give it a shot!
