Tribes: Ascend will have a Single Purchase option available, Hi-Rez Studios has announced. The one-time purchase comes with all weapon unlock, along with perks and classes minus the extra cosmetic items. The Single Purchase option will be rolled out with Friday’s scheduled update, which will also introduce new maps. A price was not provided for the new option at press time, but the studio told PCgamesN it will be priced “the ballpark of other PC multiplayer shooters,” with Tribes VIP members getting an additional discount. It can still be played as a free-to-play experience title for those you prefer it that way.

Tribes: Ascend developer Hi-Rez Studios has responded to suggestions from its community that the shooter would be more fun if the XP store’s unlocks weren’t so expensive. The studio has now slashed XP unlock prices by 50% to speed things up a little. Now, if only Marks & Spencers could do the same with its prices we’d all be swimming in posh nosh. No? Just me then.

Hi-Rez Studios has released an infographic detailing some pretty impressive Tribes: Ascend statistics complied during the shooter’s beta. Looking over the graphic, it states more than 153 million kills were pulled off, with over 9 million resulting in revenge from other players. Close to 3 million flags were captured and over 8 million players manages to return the flags thus denying a score. Seems some players aren’t so observant, as there have been close to 9,000 supply drop kills. Awesome. The game available to play for free now. Thanks, TenTonHammer.
