Tribes: Ascend beta coming soon

Tribes Ascend

Tribes: Ascend, the first entry in the franchise in seven years, is set to come out in Q1 of 2012. But gamers wanting to get their hands on the game a bit early will have an opportunity starting today.

Developer Hi-Rez Studios has revealed that the free-to-play shooter will begin a closed beta "within the next few weeks." Fans can head on over to the game’s official website now and apply for entry.

The closed beta will include four multiplayer maps, two game modes and three vehicles. Players will be able to choose from 12 different classes, and matches will feature up to 32 people.

Although the beta will be somewhat exclusive initially, Hi-Rez does plan to increase the number of participants throughout the year as the Q1 2012 release window nears closer.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
