Tribes: Ascend is the fourth PC title in the Tribes series but the first entry from Hi-Rez Studios. The game still focuses on fast-paced multiplayer combat across expansive outdoor environments where each player is equipped with a jetpack. Players also still choose to wear one of three armor types, but are now limited to two weapons -- a primary and a secondary -- regardless of which armor they choose. New to the series are specific classes that allow the selection of two perks offering various bonuses.
Modes of play include Capture the Flag, Team Deathmatch, Arena, and Capture & Hold. While there are a variety of new maps, Tribes: Ascend features some updated classic maps, as well, such as Raindance and Katabatic. The game is available to download free of charge with restricted access to player gear. Users have the ability to purchase additional content such as weapons, classes, and upgrades with either real money or experience points earned while playing. ~ Jonathan Sutyak, All Game Guide
