Hi-Rez Studios has released their first update to Tribes: Ascend since being released. Being called Tartarus, the update brings purchasable custom loadouts, two new maps, and a host of bug fixes.
The new custom loadouts will allow you to customize 4 different loadouts to swap from. These loadouts are based on what weapons, perks, and skin you want. You can also name the loadout whatever you may wish. The number pad lets you change between these loadouts on the fly with no respawn needed.
The first new map from the Tartarus update is…well… Tartarus. This is a new Capture the Flag map that features a huge area of wild plants and organic structures.
The other map is a new Arena map based on Hinterlands. There are no inventory stations in order to amp up the difficulty. Hinterlands also features an acidic moat and a circular design.
