ONTARIO, CALIFORNIA – December 5, 2011 – Hi-Rez Studios showcased their new free-to-play, first person shooter Tribes: Ascend at the North American Star League (NASL) Season 2 Finals this past weekend.
The NASL is a premier broadcaster of eSports and includes more than 80 of the world’s top professional players between its two existing tournaments, with many more competing each season for a coveted spot in the league.
Tribes: Ascend is the first FPS to be selected for inclusion by the NASL and will be featured as a Promotional Title throughout their third season. Supporting this announcement is a new video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcNnU3D5rHc) highlighting skill-based combat within Tribes: Ascend.
Tribes: Ascend is a new game within the lauded sci-fi shooter franchise Tribes. The original game, Starsiege: Tribes, was one of the first multiplayer only online games and has been cited as a grassroots early influence on eSports and shoutcasting. Building upon this legacy, the new Tribes: Ascend has been designed from the ground up with competitive eSports in mind, making it an ideal addition to the NASL.
“As developers, we are excited to offer a fast paced, high skill-ceiling shooter for this generation of gamers.” says Todd Harris, Hi-Rez Studios COO. “Tribes: Ascend and NASL are a great fit in terms of dedication to competition and high-quality, high-engagement content.”
