New APB will support customization from old APB

Monday, 17th January 2011 17:17 GMT By Patrick Garratt


GamersFirst has confirmed that old customization jobs from APB as was can be ported into the MMO’s reboot, APB-Reloaded.

The new version will allow players to keep all of their customizations from the Realtime Worlds version of the crime game.

“You will basically be unique thanks to you having played the game ‘back in the day,’ and our goal is to make sure your many gazillion hours of investment do not go to waste,” GamersFirst CEO Bjorn Book-Larsson said on the reboot’s blog.

Book-Larsson conceded that the move may make for some odd pairings, as some of the items from the game’s previous life aren’t included in the rebirth’s progression system, but he hopes veterans will be able to put up with the quirks.

APB Reloaded will enter closed beta in February.

Crime MMO APB, originally developed by the now-bust RTW, was bought by Gamersfirst in November last year.

Thanks, Massively.

    So, will the actual game be free to download, like LOTRO?

    It isn’t related to RTW anymore, so it’s not the case as for LoTRO.
    APB Reloaded will be handled by GamersFirst and it’s gonna be released as Freemium.

    Can someone clear this up for me please.
    Will this be free to play like Battlefield Heroes or will it be free to play like Champions Online is going and how Guild Wars is?

    EDIT: Sorry didn’t read the above comment, I guess that clears it up.

    Yeah this game was a colossal waste of my time and money…and for a game that had so much promise and that i was looking forward to for so long I will never boot this game up ever again even if it is free to play now…theres basically no reason they couldnt have put this piece of junk on the consoles where it would have had some success instead of being practically unplayable for me on PC…
