Everyone seems to be hopping on the free-to-play bandwagon. Tribes: Ascend is the latest game to join the fray, although it's not due out until the fall. When it arrives, you won't have to pay a dime to partake in what very much looks like a true sequel to the original Tribes games. Ascend was revealed with a teaser trailer back in March, but there's now some gameplay footage to soak up.
Developer Hi-Rez Studios will release Tribes: Ascend on the PC and consoles this fall. It's unclear how the game will make money, but you can probably bet on an in-game store loaded with weapons, items, and fashionable accessories like, uh, hats.
I was troubled by the lack of gameplay footage when Ascend was announced, but this latest trailer is very reassuring. With the game free to play, I have a feeling a lot of folks are going to be skiing this winter. Thanks to Rock, Paper, Shotgun for the tip.
