Hi-Rez Studios confirmed that the Closed Beta for Tribes: Ascend will begin on Friday, November 4, 2011.

Studio representatives also announced that no character wipes are planned during Beta. Player advancement in terms of rank, class unlocks, and skill progression will carry forward beyond Closed Beta, into Open Beta and into Release

Previous Tribes titles have been played by well over 1 million gamers and feature fast-paced, jetpack-enabled multiplayer combat. Tribes: Ascend continues this tradition, delivering speed, verticality, vehicles and stunning graphics within an entirely new, free-to-play game for the PC.

The Closed Beta build of Tribes: Ascend includes two initial class options – the Soldier and the Ranger, 10 additional classes available to be permanently unlocked, 3 drivable vehicles, 2 game-modes, and servers located across North America, Europe and Australia. Prior to release Hi-Rez will also support Ranked Servers and Private Servers.

Those wishing to guarantee a Closed Beta spot may purchase the Tribes: Ascend VIP Starter Bundle at the game’s official website. The bundle includes automatic admission into Beta, permanent VIP status in the game, a 30-day Booster and 3000 Tribes Gold. The VIP Starter Bundle is priced at a 33% discount to list price, as a reward to the game’s early testers.

    Is there going to be Key Giveaway

    I’m a little upset about the way they gave beta keys out. I personally think they should have given keys to all Global Agenda (they are made by the same company) alpha and beta testers, then give them to players that bought it within a few month of release. I bought GA the day it came out. I, along with many others, was supporting HiRez when they were just a no-name company. These players should get higher priority than some random dude who signed up for beta because it looked like Halo. =/

      Your perception is very wrong. Do some research before you make comments that make you look silly. The “random” “dudes” that pre-ordered this game are 95% composed of Tribes fans, that have been part of the community since Tribes 1, Tribes: Vengence, Tribes 2 days. At least go look at the forums before raging about not getting a beta key delivered to you on a silver platter. Who cares about GA anyways… lol …… ITS A WOW CLONE! (lol j/k).
