Yes, we've all heard Tribes Universe, and Tribes Ascend, and perhaps even FireFall. Anyways, I'm skipping all the bullshit descriptions and reviews and my thoughts etc. Just posting this to share some screen shots of a playtest (someone else, not me) or Tribes Ascend.

Images from a couple months ago in the beta.

It looks like Halo.. There's really nothing else to say about it. It's a fast-paced Halo. o.O
And apparently it's for Xbox also.

I won't waste my time fitting in.

'Cause I don't think contrast is a sin.

I'll post what Geb said in the shoutbox here, which is practically the same thing.

Hopefully when this game comes out, and if it's any good, TL will actually regain our Tribes division...

Cliff notes to summarize the video if it's too much of a bother to listen for 30 mins. lol

Closed beta: Friday, November 4th.

DJ strength, chasing, stand-still momentum has been tweaked.

3 ways to get into beta: hand-selected by HiRez, promotions/contests, pre-order VIP starter packs. 33% discount on purchases and beta guarantee.

VIP status gives you more in-game gold that goes towards classes and boosters.

'Many thousand' closed beta testers expected. Expect US, EU and AU servers.

Closed beta will focus on character progression outside of matches.

Open beta will focus on maintaining progression.

CBT will have NDA. Don't expect servers to be up 24/7, but they will be up a lot more than it was in Alpha.

Main goal of loadout system was to introduce a class-based system to Tribes; feel it will make gameplay more interesting. Customization not in the foreseeable future. If players were given complete weapon freedom, a dominant strategy would emerge and it would no longer be a class-based game.

Disc+2 system: Lot of discussion in the studio. Giving every class a disc hurts its distinctiveness (both the class and spinfusor). At least 3 loadouts have a spinfusor.

Boost confirmed for Jumper class?

Perk/skill system per class.

Character progression: to max out the Soldier class, 20 hours of gameplay will be needed. $/VIP and boosts will shorten requirements. Currently 11 skills/perks per class, will likely change during and after beta. Character ranks set at 50.

No server browser for CBT. Select gametype and hit Join. Expect sever browser for final release.

Social features: Currently contains a friends-list, next will be a party system and clan rosters, with e-sport features in the future.
