MMO APB Reloaded coming free to Gold members

APB Reloaded

Calling all cars, calling all cars! Ravenscourt and Reloaded Games have today issued an APB for, well. APB Reloaded.

This customisation driven open-world MMO has been released as a free to play (for Gold Members) and free to download title on Xbox One.

APB Reloaded puts you in the near-future urban cityscape of San Paro where you pick one of two factions. Choose “Enforcer” to uphold the city’s martial law or, you can choose to be a “Criminal” to cause maximum mayhem across this city.

In addition to the challenging and immersive gameplay, APB Reloaded features one of the best and most extensive character, symbol and vehicle customisation systems available in any modern MMO.

The game will be driven by Player Versus Player experiences, where up to 100 customised players can participate in real time arenas of 50 v 50. San Paro will certainly be a busy place and there are so many opportunities for mayhem across the city.

Players can also create user generated designs and customisations then hawk those designs to other gamers using the in-game auction house system.

APB Reloaded has been out on PC since 2011. Since then, 5.8 million players have spent 40 million hours creating more than 10 million characters in the PC version, which gives you an idea of the popularity of the title. Players will have the opportunity to earn items in game for free and have the option to purchase additional in-game gear, clothing, vehicles and more. These are intended for your character to specialise in particular play styles.

To celebrate the release of APB Reloaded on Xbox One, Reloaded Games have created the APB Xbox One Founders Pack. These premium items will be given to all new players for free, as long as they log in, in the first 30 days.

APB Xbox One Founders Pack includes:

  • The Fireworks Flare Launcher – a long range support weapon.
  • Mikro JC14 ‘New Cross’ vehicle for the Criminals faction.
  • ‘Bobcat’ Vaqero PRC40 vehicle for the Enforcers faction.

Additionally, players who play more than 10 hours during the first 30 days will receive the added bonus of an exclusive Xbox One XB1 Weapon Skins and the exclusive title of ‘XB1 Founder’.

APB Reloaded will also give players team-based missions with an ever-increasing arsenal of weapons and modifications to fulfill them. Add in to this, dozens of vehicles and regular in-game events with timed exclusive missions and unique rewards, will APB Reloaded be the title that rivals Rainbow Siege 6 for team-based mayhem and fun?

As mentioned above, APB Reloaded is free to download and play on Xbox One for Xbox Live Gold members from today.

Be careful out there, though. The title reportedly sports a £115 ‘micro’ transaction.

APB: Reloaded MMO coming to Xbox One

There are many things in the evolution of games that can be compared. First-person shooters inevitably get compared to each other. Back in 1987, a top-down cops and robbers game called APB was released on the home computer systems at the time, and was great fun. 10 years later a top-down cops and robbers game called Grand Theft Auto was released.

Over the intervening years GTA developed into the third-person perspective adventure that we’ve come to know and love and APB looks like it’s headed in the same direction.

Deep Silver, Reloaded Games and The Workshop Entertainment have announced that the PC hit MMO, APB Reloaded, will be coming to Xbox One, late in the second quarter of this year.

When it’s released, the game will be free-to-play for Xbox Live Gold members and will put you in the near-future city of San Paro, where you will pick one of two factions to play as. Choose “Enforcer” and you’ll be responsible for upholding the city’s fragile martial law. Choose “Criminal” and you’ll be tasked with causing maximum mayhem across the city.

The game promises to offer a fully immersive world, with one of the most extensive character and vehicle customisation systems on any MMO. The game will be driven by PvP experiences with up to 50 PvP missions happening at any one time, in real time, across San Paro.

CEO of Reloaded Games, Bjorn Brook-Larsson enthused,

Over the past year it has been great working with Deep Silver and their experienced publishing teams from the Saints Row, Homefront and Dead Island franchises, as well as with the veteran development team at The Workshop, led by great members of the Tony Hawk, Call of Duty 3, The Evil Within and Borderlands 2 teams, and getting their deep insight into how we can best transform APB Reloaded into a great console experience.

Players will be given the opportunity to earn in game items for free and there will also be the chance to purchase in-game gear, vehicles, items and customisations that will enhance your character’s playing styles.

APB Reloaded is shaping up to be the next evolutionary step in the cops and robbers genre and should be out, around the summertime this year.
