Pre-order Tribes: Ascend and gain access to its beta; Beta starts on November 4th

Hi-Rez Studios announced that Tribes: Ascend is now available for pre-order with a 33% discount. In addition, those who pre-order it will gain access to its beta phase that starts on November 4th. Tribes: Ascend is currently priced at $29.99 USD and features a VIP Status, 800 Tribes Gold and a 30-Day Booster.
Tribes: Ascend is developed by Hi-Rez Studios, is using the Unreal 3 engine and is being positioned as the multi-player successor to the much lauded Tribes 2 and a re-introduction of the franchise to the gaming world.
The Tribes games have been played by well over 1 million gamers and feature fast-paced, jetpack-enabled multiplayer combat. Tribes: Ascend continues that tradition, delivering speed, verticality, vehicles and stunning graphics as a free-to-play game for the PC.

Todd Harris, Hi-Rez Studios Chief Operating Officer said:

“Our vision is to deliver a high production, AAA multiplayer shooter that offers a refreshing alternative to today’s slow paced military shooters, while also happening to be free to play. This holiday season, shooter players can continue to hide in cover and crawl across the ground while playing one of the familiar military-style shooters… Or they can get off their belly, strap on a jetpack and join us in high flying, high-speed combat in Tribes: Ascend!”

Those interested can pre-purchase it from the game’s official site.
