Tribes: Ascend Announced For XBLA And PC

At PAX East, Hi-Rez Studios unveiled a new entry to the Tribes series. Dubbed as the successor to the popular Tribes 2, Tribes: Ascend will be a multiplayer-only affair and utilizes the Unreal Engine 3. The game will be released “late 2011” for the Xbox 360 and PC via digital distribution.

According to the press release, Hi-Rez Studios has confirmed long term plans for the series since purchasing the rights in 2010. The first game, Tribes: Ascend, will serve as a re-introduction to the series. It was also noted that releasing the game for additional platforms is still under consideration. That’s good news for PS3 owners.
