Tribes: Ascend set to release this year for PC, XBL 

Hi-Rez Studios has announced Tribes: Ascend, a multiplayer-only title heading to PC and XBL this year.

Speaking with PC Gamer, Hi-Rez COO Todd Harris said: “Before Halo, before Modern Warfare, and before Battlefield, there was Tribes. Tribes fans appreciate the game’s essence–athletic FPS combat combined with teamwork and strategy.

"As we began development of Tribes Universe, we focused first on capturing that essence–refining and modernizing iconic elements like jetpacks, skiing, and vehicles. We’ve had tremendous fun play-testing and realized the potential of a multiplayer focused title ahead of Tribes Universe. The community has been waiting for a multi-player shooter that is the modern successor to T2. Tribes: Ascend is that game.”

The UR3 game does not have an exact date just yet, but it should keep you pacified until the Tribes Universe MMO is finally released.
