Tribes: Ascend Also Going Free-to-Play

According to this news post at Shacknews, Tribes: Ascend is going Free-to-Play. Here's how the company plans to make money:

In Riot's game, new "champions" are made available for purchase every two weeks, for about $5-10. Tribes: Ascend will, instead, allow players to buy entire loadouts. One loadout may give players more engineer-type attributes, while another may focus more on stealth. Developer Hi-Rez is hoping to create new loadouts on a regular basis, in addition to making cosmetic enhancements available for purchase as well.
