Less than a year after Hi-Rez announced the return of Tribes Ascend with the “Out of the Blue” patch, the game’s final patch has been released. Titled “Parting Gifts,” the update implements a bunch of technical fixes and makes the patcher stand-alone.
This patch follows Creative Director Sean McBride announcing his departure from the company, stating that he and Hi-Rez are “not aligned” at this time. For the time being, Hi-Rez does plan to continue supporting the game with live servers and bug and balance fixes as needed.
