Yes. I got selected to participate in the Tribes: Ascend Early Testing Program.

This is like a closed beta / open beta test.

Closed beta? You need an invitation (read as: a serial key) in order to participate. Open beta? All progress (character level, unlocks and purchases) will remain. There’ll be NO WIPE AT ALL.

Since there’s no NDA, be sure to check up later during the week (prolly during weekend) for some screenshots and overview about the beta!

Here are my first impressions, though I will write more than one entry to explain the game itself.U (more…)
