Tribes Ascend hit Steam yesterday and for the next week they are celebrating with a 50% discount on the Tribes: Ascend Steam Starter pack. The offer ends on the 4th of July, so you’ll have to be quick.
Now some of you may be thinking ‘WTF Tribes is free to play’ and you’d not be wrong. It’s still free to play don’t worry. The advantage of “buying” it from Steam is the discounted starter pack which gives you the following:-
Join the World’s Fastest Shooter with heavy firepower, diverse classes, and faster unlocks. Perfect for new players, the Steam Starter Pack includes:

Now a very nice man, who uses the moniker Totalbiscuit, got out his abacus and informed us via twitter that:
Did the math, the Tribes Starter Pack on Steam is essentialy 3320 golds worth of stuff, that’s bout $25 of gear for $10
…or in real money £7.49. Even Delboy would have problems not admitting that’s ‘luvly jubbly’. We at Unit Lost thought Tribes was worth a go and now you have even more incentive.
