Reloaded Productions has just launched
the biggest update yet for free-play cops-and-robbers action MMO, APB
Reloaded. The Fight Club update marks the game's graduation from beta
to store shelves, with the boxed edition set to go out tomorrow (Dec
9). Here's a kickass recent trailer to celebrate, featuring game footage and live-action gunfights starring YouTube celebrities Tobuscus,
SeaNanners, Katers17 and the SMP Films crew.
APB has come a long way since running
down crackheads and scarfing donuts in its 1987 namesake: after a
troubled false-start under original developer Realtime Worlds, the
relaunched title has been building steam under open beta since
earlier this year. Now publisher GamersFirst is ready to push the
game onto store shelves. The retail version has an RRP of $29.95, and includes bonus content in
the form of free in-game credit, a month's experience-boosting
Premium access, the Cisco Z180 AWD vehicle and Magnum ACT-44 sidearm.
APB Reloaded's Fight Club update aims
to keep the game's focus on the fast-action team-play that Reloaded Productions is making the game's signature. The mode boils the game's open-world action down into
smaller zones across the city, which play host to territorial battles
focused on team-play and tight squad tactics. Reloaded Productions
aims to expand this mode with weekly challenges and an ever-expanding
roster of game modes to augment APB's sandbox driving and gunplay
action. For updates straight from the team themselves, head to the development blog.
