In what may be a first, a free-to-play game is getting a ‘game of the year’ edition. Hi-Rez Studios will later this week release the Tribes: Ascend Game of the Year Edition — this new edition of the game will give the player a single purchase option that will unlock all classes, perks and weapons within the game.

To make things perfectly clear given the unusual nature of this version, Hi-Rez’s Todd Harris comments:

“Nothing changes for players that are enjoying the game with the free-to-play model. But we now also offer an additional single-purchase option to unlock every weapon in the game.”

The Tribes: Ascend Game of the Year Edition will go on sale on February 15th at a discounted launch price of £20.99 / €23.99, while existing VIP account members will be able to grab is for even less, at just £13.99 / €15.99.
