User-Made Maps for Tribes: Ascend

Developers Hi-Rez Studios claimed that would be no major updates for their free-to-play multiplayer first person shooter, Tribes: Ascend, for at least six months while they finish SMITE. Hi-Rez CEO Todd Harris has stated that they plan to add custom map support to the game.

This is what Harris had to say about the inclusion of multiplayer maps,

“The one thing we’re going to be working on next is a path for users to basically add their own maps, we just feel like it’s at a good point to have users maintain it. We feel that it’s a complete experience, and we want to give users the tools to add their own maps – versus, say, us adding more guns that wouldn’t benefit the experience.”

Unfortunately there isn’t a date for when the custom map feature will hit consoles,

“There’s actually some community work toward an SDK that’s been started, and I expect more details from us in the next month. It’s not anything that has a date yet or a full feature set, but that’s the only real feature that we have in the works – aside from some small bug fixes.”

Tribes: Ascend is out now for PC.
