Hi-Rez Studios just announced that the much anticipated Tribes: Ascend will have the closed beta in a few weeks. This new episode in the famous online multiplayer series will be free-to-play, just like Global Agenda: Free Agent, the studio’s previous work.
Players may apply to the closed beta at the Tribes: Ascend official site, with the number of participants regularly increasing until the final release, scheduled for Q1 2012.
The closed beta will initially offer 4 maps, 2 game modes, 12 classes and 3 vehicles, allowing for up to 32 simultaneous players. Those in need for some jetpack-fueled action have to check Tribes: Ascend, since the game has been receiving rave previews.
