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.
