Hi-Rez co-founder and CEO Erez Goren took to Reddit yesterday to deliver a message about his studio's history and its plans for the future.

Hi-Rez's Todd Harris argues Tribes: Ascend is a 'complete' and 'content-rich' experience

The Firing Line: Five reasons to love Tribes: Ascend

Oh, Tribes: Ascend, if only you were an MMO. Actually, wait a minute. When I think on it, if Hi-Rez Studios' new free-to-play sci-fi shooter were an MMO, I probably wouldn't like it as much. There's something to be said for frequent updates and instant gameplay gratification, and Tribes...
