There’s no doubt that Tribes: Ascend is a cracking FPS, and it’s free to play which is an added bonus, but one of the main criticisms is the speed of the unlocks on weapons.
Hi-Rez Studios are about to make some changes in the next game update which increase the speed at which weapons unlock to lessen the grind. 27 new weapons are also being added to the pool and there’s the dev team have decided that some weapon balance tuning was needed. Finally, two new Capture & Hold maps are also being added to the game.
Hi-Rez co-founder Todd Harris explains the changes in this video for the ‘Accelerate‘ update.
