So as of today the beta for the new tribes game, Tribes : Ascend, is released for people who preordered the game. I think, based on what I've read, that it's going to be free to play, but by paying $30 you get access to the beta and VIP status and some other things. I'm considering getting it because Tribes looks like a lot of fun but I don't know if I will be able to do well at all... I'm trying out Global Agenda at the insistence of my friend. I'm really excited for it but I am still on the fence about getting it.
