APB Reloaded Screenshots Show Men, Guns

'Gun, you are a fine gun,' said David Gun.

And now, some guns! GamersFirst have released the first few screenshots of APB Reloaded, their upcoming free-to-play reboot of Realtime Worlds’ cops’n’robber MMOG. There are four of these shots, all showing a man enjoying a day out with his gun. The screenshots accompany a long blog post from designer Zak Littwin (previously the QA Lead at Realtime Worlds) detailing just some of the changes coming in the game. Not convinced? You might be after you read the quotes I’ve pulled from the post below.

APB: Re-beta’d, The Sign Up

The APB: Reloaded blog has come up with some details about how to join the closed beta. Sign up and create a GamersFirst account is the first step, but later there’s information and DxDiag and things. They’re just warning you that it’s going to get involved, or something. Apparently 20,000 people have already registered, which sounds like a decent number, but I wonder how many of you lot will? How many of you want to go back? How many of you feel excited that this game is relaunching? I have some hopes that GamersFirst will be able to fix some elements of what made APB wonky, but it’s tough to know if they can really make the big changes that would bring the game into the state it should have been at launch.

That said, if it’s eventually going to be free to play, we’ll all end up having another look, won’t we?

APB Reloaded Beta “Late February”

That’s according to this tweet from the company that now owns the game. Last year’s biggest disaster is being transformed into a free-to-play title by the chaps at GamersFirst, who picked up the dead game for a bargain price when RealTime Worlds collapsed in September.
