Hi-Rez Studios was quick to assure its fans that Tribes Ascend will remain as a free MMO, and that it just wanted to offer a quick-buy option for players who want to get all the weapons in one fell swoop.
The new Game of the Year Edition will be rolling out with new content as well, including six brand new maps – three for capture-the-flag and Blitz play, and three for Arena – and two new cosmetic skins.
