Tribes Ascends Into Beta Next Month

The vast-levelled reboot/remake was at one point theoretically due for a beta in September, but now we have a minor delay but a hard date: November 4 (according to this interview between Cyberlink and HiRez bigwig Todd Harris).

You can sign up yourself here, then cross your armoured fingers that you'll be one of the chosen. If you are, you'll get to fiddle with and on four multiplayer maps, two game modes and three vehicles, with the game supporting up to 32 players and offering 12 unlockable classes.
