Hi-Rez Studios today announced that a “Game of the Year Edition” (GotY) of Tribes: Ascend will be released on February 15th, 2013 as a single-purchase digital download for the PC. With five editor’s choice awards and Game of the Year honors, this edition celebrates the critical success of Tribes: Ascend. With this edition players can get access to over 100 weapons, all 9 classes, and all 21 perks. The Tribes: Ascend GotY Edition includes weapon and perk DLC from all ten previous expansions as well as the new Shocklance weapon.
Todd Harris, Hi-Rez Chief Operating Officer said:
“Nothing changes for players that are enjoying the game with the free-to-play model. But we now also offer an additional single-purchase option to unlock every weapon in the game.”
Hi-Rez celebrates the new edition with new content for all players. The upcoming patch includes six brand new maps (three CTF & Blitz and three Arena maps), the new Shocklance weapon, and two new cosmetic skins.
