Have any of you managed to get the Tribes Ascend Private Beta working? I input the key as Jim suggested, but I get told to wait until the public beta starts on 4 November.

I didn't get my key through RPS, but it's telling me to wait till the closed beta starts at the 4th. Apparently it's still in alpha now.

I got an invitation yesterday and gave it a whirl. I never was the biggest Tribes nut out there, but Ascend feels pretty similar. Skiing is fast, fun and hard to master. Shooting feels a little cumbersome for some reason, though that might be because I suck. Does look and feel very similar to Halo -- that was the first comment my fiancee made. Main user interface is a relic from 2002; HUD in-game is ok. Overall decent/enjoyable, but I'll hold out for PS2 to get my MMOFPS on.
