Tribes: Ascend is a free to play, PC exclusive, title by the Hi-Rez Studios Developers. Thats right, they are the guys behind the MMO sci-fi shooter, Global Agenda. Some of you may know that Ascend is actually coming from some serious MMO FPS heritage and has a lot to live up to. The Tribes series has seen some solid critical success in the eyes of the press but it has been 8 years since the last title, Tribes Vengeance, came out to a less than happy hardcore fanbase.
Tribes Ascend looks back past that hiccup and claims to be the successor to the much loved Tribes 2. Well, the wait is nearly over, an April 12th release date, and we have been kindly sent the system requirements by the guys at Hi-Rez. They are pretty hefty requirements but bare in mind that this game is developed on the Unreal 3 Engine, albeit probably a heavily modified version. So lets take a look at the Tribes Ascend System Requirements...
