The online FPS game Tribes is back, as fast as ever, and free to play. Hi-Rez Studios revealed the first gameplay footage of the highly awaited multiplayer FPS Tribes: Ascend, and also revealed the business model behind the game : Ascend will be free-to-play from the day it launches in Fall of this year.

Tribes: Ascend, developed using the Unreal 3 engine, is being positioned as the multi-player successor to the much lauded Tribes 2 and a re-introduction of the franchise to the gaming world. For more information visit the official website at


  1. Unreal is the real champion of Sci-fi shooters in f** space. This game even uses its Engine.
    Still looks like a great game, considering unreal tournament 3 sucked it may be a good replacement.

  2. Want to know 2 game that this trailer reminds me? MarsWar and Planetside, both of them got BIG VEHICLES but this game got something they both don’t, graphics, thats why I cant wait to try it out.

  3. Halo does not copy this game, Halo copy’s a couple of games like Doom and a few others but the game that Halo copy’s most is Marathon a game of the same developer Bungie.

    • You mean bungie copies a couple of games xD marathon looks like doom. Marathon has some elements that halo has to, well yeah they need to start somewhere xD but i don’t see any doom in halo.

  4. the who cloned who is just like halo vs cod THERE IS NO REAL WINNER
    some people like halo and some like cod
    here is the case some does not know Tribes and this is the first time hearing
    and some people know Tribes and try to say that halo is a copy
    so some people says Tribes is the copy and some say Halo is the copy THERE IS NO COPY THEY ARE DIFFRENT Halo has customization and forge Tribes does not have them just like halo and cod its like well saying a banana is a clone of a apple THEY ARE DIFFRENT IF they would copy a game it would be now out of the market so they are not the same and CAN WE JUST LEAVE IT AT HALO VS COD PLEAAAAAAASSSSSEEEEEE 1 DEBATE IS ENOUGH

  5. this year is the year of changing.all p2p games are going to be free.and all p2p games are beautifull (old and new)

  6. Lets get some things straight:

    Tribes 1 came out in mid 90s with a sequel released before the 2000s. The Starsiege series also saw a number of game based on the universe, such a really popular mech combat game.

    Halo 1 was released in 2001 and saw mass media attention a few months after its release. As opposition to this, Advent Rising was supposed to improve on the new FPS model before Halo 2 was released. Advent Rising, though well reviewed NEVER got the attention that the Halo series, and by proxy the Bungie studios did. Bungie had the background of great FPS games such as Marathon and Oni.

    HiRez has taken it on themselves to reinvigorate the dead Tribes series with Tribes Ascend and Tribes Universe. Tribes, in and of itself, has always been a superior formula for multiplayer FPS marches. Many players that claim Halo is the pinnacle of arcade FPS action has never played Tribes 2. With its return, Tribes will once again reign as FPS king. Probably not amongst the consumer-illiterate who cannot look past marketing plots, but amongst those who view games as they should be. Even then, through word of mouth and the inevitable media attention, Tribes will secure its place once more. Any tl:dr statements are made by Halo and Call of Duty players 🙂 This has been your history and foresight lesson by a gaming enthusiast (addict).

    • *clap, clap, clap* Nicely done, good sir. May your thumbs be swift like the wind.
      AR was more story based, not to mention the incredible two handed combat and badass powers…its actually not all that similar to Halo other then the fact they’re both space based. It’s not even an FPS, it’s a TPS. Not sure why I actually compared them, I think the fact that Halo’s marketing secured it many pointless sequels, AR never even got the chance, I’m a bit miffed tbh.

  7. Oh again this chat about “who clone who” that never ends, if u look this one looks more with section 8, that somes will say was a clone from halo and etecetera..Everything is a clone of everything nowadays, nothing is fully original cause ideas copy ideas to make better things.

  8. Tribes is not a Halo clone and the Halo is not a tribes clone too.
    and Nox, Halo is in the same level from the first time to those games, and its not just luck why Halo has better marketing !

    • No, it isn’t. I don’t remember any jetpacks in Halo 1, do you? The more Halo evolves the bigger clone it’s becoming.

    • I will have to agree with Nox on this Tribes has been around far far longer then halo ever was not only that but the level in witch the games are in are no where close to each other so tribes being a clone of Halo? haha that’s funny Halo is a good game but its way overrated there have been far better games made but halo just got all the hipe marketing has nothing to do with how good a game is marketing is how much money you can put into your game in order to make it known so people can bye it you can make she crappiest game on earth but if you can make that trailer look kick ass then you can start wracking in some cash

  9. I love it how people call Tribes a Halo clone. It proves that they don’t know anything about what they are talking about at all.

  10. Halo was a clone of Tribes and Advent Rising, it just had a better marketing so people think it was the first. In fact not until Reach has Halo come to the same game level Tribes always held.
