Hi-Rez Studios has announced that they will be releasing a Game of the Year Edition for Tribes: Ascend that will include all of the unlockable content in the game for one single purchase. Previously, Tribes: Ascend has been strictly free to play with optional micro-transactions to unlock new weapons and equipment on a per-class basis. With the Game of the Year Edition, all of that content is available for a single purchase.
This new Game of the Year edition celebrates the editorial honors that Tribes: Ascend has been given and includes:
- All 9 classes
- Over 100 weapons
- 21 class perks
- Every DLC weapon and item
In addition to the Game of the Year Edition, Hi-Rez is releasing a brand new content update that introduces the Shocklance weapon, two new skins and six brand new maps. Read the full patch notes on that right here.
As for players who have already purchased the content in Tribes: Ascend, nothing is changing for them. They will be able to continue enjoying the game and the content they have purchased with no additional fees or changes at all. The upcoming patch will be available for all Tribes: Ascend players.
The Tribes: Ascend Game of the Year Edition will be available on Friday, February 15th for $29.99 at www.tribesascend.com and on Steam. Check out a video of the brand new content in action after the break!
