SAN FRANCISCO. March 9, 2012. Today, at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, Hi-Rez Studios announced that Tribes: Ascend will be released on April 12, 2012.

Tribes: Ascend is a fast paced sci-fi FPS for the PC that bills itself the “World’s Fastest Shooter.”

Supporting the announcement Hi-Rez Studios also released a parody trailer titled “Tribes Ascend – Llama Island.”

“Tribes is all about speed and movement,” explains Todd Harris, Hi-Rez Studios Chief Operating Officer. “In fact the community uses the term llama to refer to a player moving too slowly, like a plodding llama. So this video demonstrates the perils of trying to capture a flag while going too slow. The outcome is predictable but no less tragic.”

Watch the Tribes: Ascend Llama Island video below:

Tribes: Ascend is currently in Open Beta with over 400,000 players participating. Hi-Rez has announced that all player progress in Beta will carry over to the release build. Anyone interested in trying Tribes: Ascend can create an account and download the game from, without the need for a beta key.
