Rise And Shine: Tribes Ascend Release Date And Trailer


If you're already part of the Tribes: Ascend open beta, you might not realise that it's not already out. That 3.8Gb on your hard-drive is nothing more than a game that is pretending to be out. The duplicitous, lying beast will soon be much more moral, though: following a successful beta, that's had 400'000 players, Hi-Rez are launching, or at least de-betafying, their lovely online free-to-play FPS. Come April 12th, it'll no longer be able to say "but I'm only a beta" when people point out the code holes the developers have left.

Still, the have one more burst of immorality before starting on the long road to legitimacy: the launch trailer is a pisstake of the heart-wrenching Dead Island trailer. Have you no shame? I felt for that poor, lonely Red, dying in the dirt like a zombified child. Except it was worse, because he nearly had the flag and then he didn't. Because of death.
