Tribes: Ascend is a Free to Play Sci-Fi First Person Shooter made by the same people who made Global Agenda. It is an incredibly fast-paced first person shooter with the main gametype being capture the flag, even though there is also Arena, Team Deathmatch, and Capture & Hold gametypes.

Tribes is a unique fps because to succeed in this game one needs to be able to maneuver well, since there are vehicles and jetpacks and most of the action can take place in the air, it’s all a matter of being able to outmaneuver your opponents. One would also have to keep in mind that the weapons are projectiles, instead of just aiming and the bullets just hit that spot, but you have to take in account where the player is going and how fast they are moving to be able to hit them.

If you’re looking for a change of pace from a “modern” style shooter you should definitely look into Tribes, especially because it’s free to play! To play you need to register on the site and download the game, and then you’re good to go!
