Tribes: Ascend isn’t like most other shooters you might have played. It’s extremely fast, it’s intense and it’s ridiculously fun. While it lacks a few bells and whistles and doesn’t sport any type of large open and persistent world, it makes up for all that with quick and dirty fun delivered directly to your face. Strap on your jetpack, load your guns and start skiing! For more specifics on the game, check out the details from the Steam page:
The classic shooter franchise Tribes has been played by well over 1 million people. With Tribes: Ascend, the franchise is reborn – fast-paced, vertical, acrobatic combat combined with class-based teamwork and stunning sci-fi visuals.
