Tribes: Ascend has a fan base of over 1.2 million people, and these are people who have all downloaded the game directly from Hi-Rez Studios. Now the game is coming to Steam, which is sure to increase its fan base even more. Hope your servers can take the load, Hi-Rez.
For those of you worried about cost, don’t be. The game is still free-to-play, and accounts, weapons, and upgrades all transfer over to the Steam version. However, if you are looking to get a little more out of your game, Steam is offering a fifty percent discount on the Tribes Starter Pack. The pack includes a lifetime 50% XP boost, two classes, twelve weapon unlocks, four perk unlocks, and 800 Gold for ten dollars. However, this offer only stands till July 4th.
Tribes is an amazing fast-paced sci-fi arcade-style shooter. If you haven’t tried it out yet and are an avid Steam customer, it will easily keep you occupied for an afternoon or two of shooting glory.
