Tribes: Ascend Hits The Competitive Gaming Scene

Hi-Rez only released Tribes: Ascend a few weeks ago, but they’re already confident enough in their playerbase, game balance, and the fan’s desire for competitive gaming tournaments.  So,  they’re setting up a series of tournaments worth a decent chunk of change, all things considered.

Joining the likes of League of Legends and other competitive co-op games, Hi-Rez are getting in on the cyber-sport action with a three-staged tournament worth $30,000 in total prizes and rewards for Tribes: Ascend, their latest free-to-play first-person shooter PC game. The entire event will be streamed on Twitch TV for spectators, making it worth your while to keep up with even if you’re not participating.

The first stage ends this weekend, on the 12th and is partnered by Sports Network, to determine who will go further into the tournament, with rewards of  $2,500.

The semi-finals will be held at E3, streamed live, and the grand finale will be a LAN event in Toronto, Canada.

The question is, will Tribes: Ascend be a worthy addition to the cyber sports community? Would you watch people duke it out in the futuristic, fast-paced shooter? Leave your comments and let us know; we’d love to hear what you’ve got to say.
