Tribes Beta Version 0.1.789.1 Patch Notes
SERVER DOWNTIME: The Tribes Servers are expected to be down for a number of hours on WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2012 while the patch is deployed. Watch the Server Status on the game loader for the latest availability information.
The game no longer requires a key in order to play. Anyone can join the beta program by simply creating an account on http://www.tribesascend.com
and then downloading the game. Players are reminded that their progression in the game will be
kept once the beta ends and the game officially launches -- so time spent playing now will be rewarded at launch.
A new gametype, Arena, has been added with two initial maps, Air Arena and Lava Arena. The Arena gametype features five-on-five matches fought on small hazardous maps. The team that wins two rounds wins the match. During the course of a round, each team has 25 respawns. After a team's respawns are depleted, players on that team each get one more life before the round ends. The team with the last man standing wins the round.
A new Capture the Flag map has been added to the quick match rotation (Temple Ruins).
A new Team Deathmatch map has been added to the quick match rotation (Inferno).
Two new unlockable items have been added on the Soldier class: Proximity Grenade and Utility Pack.
Servers are now available in Asia and Brazil. You may choose your server region in the Play Now menu, or in the Settings menu.
You may now change your Gamer Name for gold, using the Store menu.
