Tribes: Ascend Delayed Until Next Year; Closed Beta Nears

Hi-Rez Studios announces they plan to kick off closed beta testing of Tribes: Ascend within the next few weeks, though there's no specific date for the testing of their upcoming multiplayer shooter revival. They say they will hand-select thousands of testers from those who register on the Tribes: Ascend Website. This news also reveals a delay, as the game was announced for release later this year, but now word is: "Hi-Rez Studios will continue to increase the number of beta participants through the end of this year in preparation for a general game release in Q1 of 2012." Here are a pair of new screenshots, and here's word on testing: "During this initial beta phase, Tribes: Ascend players will experience 4 multiplayer maps, 2 game-modes and 3 vehicles as they progress thru 12 playable classes in fast-paced, high-flying online multiplayer matches of up to 32 people."

I never understood why Tribes was so popular. I played it alot, but it just didn't stick for me. I guess I was spending all of my time in QW and Action Quake 2....

Did you learn how to ski? If the answer is no, that explains why it didn't stick for you.

Anyway, T:A looks pretty bad. They're trying to add a bunch of modern elements (health regen, classes, two-weapon limits, hitscan weapons, unlockables) that really have no place in a Tribes game.
