RANDOMCAST (11/18 at 8pm EST) — Tribes Ascend & Beta Key Giveaway
It’s been a very long time since Tribes came up in the gamer vernacular. So long, in fact, that most gamers today hardly have an idea what Tribes was and what a large role it played in the PC FPS arena in the late 90′s and early 2000′s. It’s also been quite a long time since the original game, Starsiege Tribes, had a proper sequel or follow up that achieved the size, scale, and most importantly the speed of the original game.
That’s where the current carriers of the Tribes baton come in. HiRez Studios, known for their MMO-shooter Global Agenda, are determined to make a game that both lives up to the legacy of the original Tribes, yet works for a whole new audience used to unlocking skills and playing a range of class types. Oh, and did I mention it’s free-2-play?
If you’d like to find out more about the game, be sure to come check out tonight’s episode of the Randomcast, starting at 8pm EST only on our channel over at TWITCH.TV! You can also register for the closed beta that’s going on right now by heading over to tribesascend.com and singing up. And if you preorder the game, you’ll get immediate access to the beta, gold to spend on classes, and permenant VIP status with access to VIP servers that net you extra experience.
