Tribes has had a pretty good rooting in competitive tournaments with prizes, and the newest one is no exception - as of this trailer, Hi-Res Studios confirms they'll be returning to it. There will be custom servers with competitive rulesets, cash prizes for tournaments, a spectator mode, and in-game streaming of live games. 

Tribes: Ascend Tartarus Is Live

New loadout customization, two new maps, and a ton of new content slipped right into Tribes: Ascend when we weren't looking. The patch preview explains it all if you haven't already left to download it.

Tribes Ascend Talks Raids, Pillages

Ya-harr! Patch preview off the port bow! Tribes Ascend talks the new update and the Raider class, as well as new weapons such as the plasma gun, the cluster grenade, and the NJ5-B. 

Hi-Rez Studios now has an official launch date for Tribes: Ascend: April 12th, 2012. To celebrate, Hi-Rez has released a hilarious trailer parodying the recent Dead Island trailer that pushed so many gamers to tears.

You can check out the trailer below, and be sure to catch that look of absolute despair in the eyes of the capper (@ 0:57) as he watches a fellow player steal his flag while going at the speed of molasses.

Some big new additions have made their way into Tribes: Ascend, including the addition of badges, which are awarded as you achieve certain milestones within the game. Additionally, a new team deathmap map, Outskirts, has been added.

Two new perks have also been introduced to the game, Rage and Sonic Punch. Rage is a defensive perk that increases energy regeneration for a limited time and provides a 25% heal if you're near your flag when an enemy grabs it. Sonic Punch creates a shock wave with each melee swing that knocks back enemy players and forces flag fumbles. Time to punch your way to victory!
