OXCGN’s Tribes: Ascend Preview
©2011 Nicholas Laborde
Sometimes, in the midst of the madness that is the Fall release season, (Spring-Summer for all you Aussie gamers) a game can stand out among the fray.
Tribes: Ascend is the newest, multiplayer-only iteration in the esteemed Tribes franchise.
Tackled by a new developer, Hi-Rez Studios, and going free-to-play, devoted fans have every right to be apprehensive about what some may view as a bad business decision.
Fans and newcomers alike will be pleased to hear that Tribes: Ascend not only impresses despite the pedigree of its background, but due to the simple fact that the game provides a fun factor rarely seen in a modern multiplayer game.
The game is currently in a closed beta stage, and OXCGN has you at the front lines: not only do you get to read our wonderful preview of the game, but we also have a giveaway in conjunction with our three million unique views celebration!
Details to follow at the end.

The game is an online-only free-to-play shooter which our previewer describes as having the “classic FPS formula we all know and love, but with a bit of modern amenities thrown in”.
There is a 2012 planned release.
All you have to do to get one of these closed beta keys is “like” our Facebook page and go to the Tribes: Ascend post and type: “I want a Tribes: Ascend Beta key“.
You can’t get easier.
