Hi-Rez Studios Announce Cash Prize Tournament For Tribes: Ascend
Hi-Rez Studios, developers of Global Agenda and Smite, have just announced an upcoming series of tournaments for their futuristic MMOFPS game, Tribes: Ascend. Tribes: Ascend shot up the game rankings after releasing earlier this year thanks to a collection of exciting in-game features, and intense FPS player vs player action set on distant planets using sci-fi themed weaponry.
The competitive aspect of the MMO industry, eSports, has always been on the fence in terms of popularity, with some calling it a new form of competitive art, while others say it’s just geeks getting their geek on. Either way, you can’t really argue with $30,000 worth of prizes, simply for playing a game you love. In all honesty, tournaments like these are great for the industry, attracting attention from all corners of the globe and having a real snowball like effect on forums and video sites across the internet. Although $30,000 worth of prizes is pretty impressive for a relatively new game, it doesn’t really compete with the massive $5 million prizes set aside for the upcoming eSport events in League of Legends.
Interested players will be able to watch streams from the most popular tournament matches directly through the games client thanks to the support of Twitch TV.
