Tribes Ascends To Over One Million Downloads
Tribes: Ascend has surpassed 1.2 million downloads since its release on April 12th, Hi-Rez Studios announced today.
“We’re thrilled that over 1 million gamers have discovered the fast-paced and skill-based gameplay of Tribes,” said Todd Harris, Hi-Rez Studios Chief Operating Officer. “It is truly the player support of the title that has driven the population growth and fuels our team to deliver updates.”
Tribes: Ascend was released under the free-to-play model, and is available as a digital download from the Hi-Rez web site. The recently launched Friends Referral Program, which rewards players with gold, experience and other bonuses for the number of friends that join via referral, has also brought in an additional 110,000 subscribers.
Hi-Rez also recently announced the Summer of Tribes Tournament, a series of tournaments broadcast live over the Internet, with commentary, where players will compete for a piece of the $30,000 total prize money.
