Tribes: Ascend Previews Launch Content & Awards TotalBiscuit
Tribes: Ascend is preparing to release on April 12, and Hi-Rez Studios has just announced its update plans for the launch. With the release, Hi-Rez Studios will bring back the classic Tribes map Raindance, shipped first within the original Starsiege: Tribes in 1998. The map is one of the most popular Tribes maps, and has been cited as one of the most influential multiplayer game maps of all time.
Hi-Rez Studios will also add the brand new game mode Capture & Hold. This map, playable at PAX on the map Katabatic, promises to showcase speed, vehicles, objectives, and teamwork.
Meanwhile, Tribes: Ascend has also rewarded the first player to achieve Celebrity in-game status by achieving 500 qualified new player referrals. John “TotalBiscuit” Bain has earned 5000 XP for each referral plus over 30,000 additional units of Tribes Gold. And upon reaching 500 Referrals TotalBiscuit becomes the first name added to the Player Celebrity Wall at Hi-Rez Studios.
