HiRez has finally announced a release date for the hotly anticipated title Tribes: Ascend, the latest in the fastest moving multiplayer FPS series on PC, all for free as well. April 12, 2012 is when you should mark your calendar as it's going to zoom past you if your forgetful.
Also released today is a new trailer showcasing a parody of the very heart-string pulling trailer from Dead Island, which was showing zombies invading a hotel in reverse with flashbacks. HiRez have dubbed it "Llama Island" in reference to what players call anyone that moves slowly on the battlefield.
"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."
So if your friends are going to slow, or not shazbotting enough, it's clearly time to give them a loving push and send them zooming across the map.
Tribes: Ascend is currently in Open Beta which you can sign up for and download over at their official website here. Check out the trailer below showing off the tragic Llama players death, just a reminder that going slow is not always the best way to capture a flag.
