Network multiplayer shooter from the first person (with the ability to change the camera into a third-person mode) - claiming the title of the fastest. The game is the continuation of the Tribes series.

The series includes games such as: Starsiege: Tribes, Tribes 2, Tribes: Aerial Assault, Tribes: Vengeance and Tribes: Ascend.

The general plot of the series

The plot of the series begins in 2471, when a scientist Solomon Petresun invents the first cybrid, a bio-cybernetic hybrid artificial intelligence named Prometheus. After this invention begins mass production of cybrids, which are intended to be used as slaves. However, in 2602 Prometheus grows and directs all cybrids against humanity.

Chronology series

The earliest events of this story occur in the game Tribes: Vengeance which was released in 2004.
The events of the next period are covered in the game Starsiege: Tribes, although the game itself came out before Tribes: Vengeance, in 1998. Then the story opens in Tribes 2, released in 2001.
The Tribes Aerial Assault, 2002 does not follow the events of the plot of the remaining games, although it is located within the general setting.
Finally, the last game of the series today is Tribes: Ascend, released in 2012.


The area in which the events unfold is very extensive. It consists mainly of hills, slopes and mountains. Anything else, such as buildings, is rare.

Player Classes

At the beginning of a match, each player chooses a character class. Classes are only three. Class can be changed during the game.

Light class - health and weapons of this class are weak, but this class has a high speed, it can become invisible and attack at a great distance from the sniper rifle. He is the best if you need to steal a flag or catch up with those who have already done it.

The middle class is average in everything - in health, armament and mobility. But this is not only the average level of everything, it is also a good balance between all the qualities.

Heavy class has the largest health reserve and powerful heavy weapons. Equally good in attack and defense, but moves slower than all, sluggish.

Special equipment and abilities

All three classes have a jetpack, allowing you to fly through the air. But the height of the climb depends on the chosen character class. All characters can slide on the surface, the speed of sliding is high, but depends on the mass of the character, and hence, on his class.


Team fight.
Capture and retention.
Capture the Flag, CtF is the main game mode. In this mode, tactics of behavior is of particular importance.
Capture the Flag "blitz" (CtF Blitz) - the main difference from conventional CtF is that after each successful capture the enemy flag moves closer to the rear of its base.
Arena 5X5.

    Account creation is designed as a science, constantly error messages like Mail agrees is not forgiven blah blah etc. If it then works out after feeling 10h then then then with the Account created via the home Page what about the actual game does NOT work with the (Create Account) button, as a Tip dear Developers, if you already integrate buttons into the Game then please so that also Work, the Create Account Button In the Game tuts never fals, so the Game is not recommended because you want to play a Game and don't have to experiment for hours in order to come into play at all where I think I already create many at the Account Be to give up;-) To the Game itself ... There's not really much to say about it ... This can be other Games of the Kind like this really better, the Respather after which one was killed is always at A ... The World (clear are great big Areas) and You first have to lush 2-3 Minutes or Jeten (Jetpack) to get to the Game and with a little pitch you have pops off again in 5 seconds and then again Respawn 10km away and again you make An Hour laps (laughs) so That didn't really fun, I really played better also much older Games than that here

    Quick Review: Action Rich, First-of-ityshooter based First/Third person shooter with new moving Mechanics. Normal Review: Tribes: Ascend offers some new Refreshing Shooter Mechanics That you don't even expect to see anywhere anymore. In itself, Tribes: Ascend is a fast first and Third person shooter (Third person Standard: X) with Which you can have long fun, with Jetpack and Sliding we go with over 200 Km/h Through the Maps. The game offers: 9 Classes, 3 Weight classes: Light, Medium and Heavy which differ in HP and Speed all together, Many Weapons for Unlocking, CTF, Team Deathmatch, FREE for all and Arena. The Game does not have the best, nor does the worst Graphics, which in itself does not really matter much, as one is more focused at speed on getting through the map quickly and by easily aiming the weapons to hit the Opponents. Rating: 8/10 There is much that makes the game unique and refreshing, but also a lot that makes it difficult and between annoying how to cost weapons that do a lot of DAMAGE to 10500 XP (Ingame Cash), earning 0-1000 XP in a match, or That it's a lot of Players The spray 'n Pray Principle uses the Spray 'n Pray principle where you just grab ne Automatic Rifle And Hold the Left maustover.
