The team behind Global Agenda, Hi-Rez Studios, have recently announced their newest title Tribes: Ascend, a multiplayer exclusive MMO-esque shooter. The title will be released for the Xbox Live Arcade and the PC sometime later this year.
“Before Halo, before Modern Warfare, and before Battlefield, there was Tribes,” said Hi-Rez Studio Chief Operating Officer Todd Harris, “As we began development of “Tribes Universe”, we focused first on capturing that essence–refining and modernizing iconic elements like jetpacks, skiing, and vehicles…We’ve had tremendous fun play-testing and realized the potential of a multiplayer focused title ahead of “Tribes Universe.” The community has been waiting for a multi-player shooter that is the modern successor to T2. “Tribes: Ascend” is that game.”
A bold statement from Todd Harris, but will “Tribes: Universe” or even “Tribes: Ascend” be as good as he says? Or will it be a horrible mess? What’s the E-G opinion, tell us below!
