Tribes: Ascend is the latest game in the Tribes franchise, and was released on April 12, 2012. It is available as a digital download for Microsoft Windows, though Hi-Rez Studios. Iconic aspects from previous Tribes games such as jetpacks and skiing are featured in the game. Unlike the other games in the series, Tribes: Ascend is Free-to-Play, relying on micro-transactions as their business model. To accommodate this model, the game uses class loadouts with predefined armors and weapons. Three classes are available when the game is first activated, the others must be unlocked with experience or purchased with Gold. User customization of classes, skins, maps, and mods have not been scheduled in any future update.
