Tribes: Ascend has over 800,000 users

Hi-Rez Studios's free-to-play title shows impressive growth

Free-to-play title Tribes: Ascend already has more than 800,000 registered accounts since its release on April 12.

Hi-Rez Studios COO Todd Harris confirmed the figure to Gamasutra, and suggests that the game is proving as popular as the critical acclaim predicted.

Tribes: Ascend's free-to-play model allows players to use XP or gold to unlock items, but upgrades for weapons and equipment can only be acquired with XP.

I always said since Star Siege Tribes (which I used to run a clan for) they should really redo the game. Tribes 2+3 were a bit ‘meh’ because they didn’t focus where the game really excelled which was base defence/attack and insane high speed combat.

One of the best team games I have played this year, Respect to Hi-Rez for not screwing up this game.
