Tribes Ascend: Release Date and Parody TrailerToday, at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, Hi-Rez Studios announced that Tribes: Ascend will be released on April 12, 2012. With the release date announcement at the GDC comes a brand new parody trailer educating you about the consequences of moving slowly in the Worlds Fastest Shooter.
Tribes is all about speed and movement, explains Todd Harris, Hi-Rez Studios Chief Operating Officer. In fact the community uses the term llama to refer to a player moving too slowly, like a plodding llama. So this video demonstrates the perils of trying to capture a flag while going too slow. The outcome is predictable but no less tragic.
