Tribes: Ascend Beta Patched

Hi-Rez Studios now offers a new patch for the Tribes: Ascend closed beta, updating the upcoming multiplayer shooter sequel to version 0.1.601.0. Word is the new version: "contains a brand new version of the Bella Omega CTF map, a number of weapon balance changes, significant updates to vehicles, an increased “first win of the day” bonus and much more." Here are the major highlights:

  • Bella Omega has been re-added to the CTF Map Rotation. Significant changes have occurred since the map was last available for play.
  • Vehicles have undergone a variety of improvements and cleanups.
  • An early (still unpolished) preview of Spectator functionality is available for testing. See additional notes below.
  • Token gain from the “First Win of the Day” challenge has been doubled.
  • A variety of changes have been made to the in-match credits system.
  • Early versions of “Mute Player” and “Report Player” functionality have been added. See additional notes below.
  • Fixes to prevent some disconnects and server instability. Additional fixes planned for future patches.

The engine itself is technically good, but the environments need a little work. Right now they're just a little bland, but the models, animations, and textures are all decent.

As for the game itself it's fun as hell, definitely worthy of the "Tribes" title. Hell, it's free, there's no reason not to try it.
