    APB (ARPG MMO)

    All Points Bulletin


    San Paro: The Living City
    APB: All Points Bulletin is set in San Paro, a persistent, online modern city which lives and breathes, filled with a population of civilians going about their daily lives. Joining the civilian population are opposing factions of players: Criminals and Enforcers, fighting for control and leaving their mark as they succeed or fail.


    Criminal or Enforcer?
    Players choose to be either a criminal or an enforcer and are matched against each other in fast-paced, third person action. The criminals aim to create a city rife with violent crime. The enforcers are pitted against them, protecting the civilian population and fighting the criminals at every turn. Want to commit a robbery with your friends? You can, but watch out because another group of players will be out to stop you!


    Conflict and Game Play
    Players can pledge to criminal or enforcement organizations and receive missions or move through the environment choosing open world activities. For criminals; robbery, graffiti, arson and murder all add to notoriety. For enforcers; arresting criminals, preventing crimes and cleaning up the city all add to prestige. With a range of weapons and vehicles to choose from and multiple ways to be matched up with other players, this is the ultimate test of your skills.


    Be a Celebrity!
    As a top player, your name will be at the top of league tables held online. San Paro will be your world: your character’s name and face as well known as a Hollywood movie star, a standard that other players aim for. But how long can you stay at the top?

    Be Creative!
    APB has one of the most in depth character and vehicle customization tools available today. Every player can create a unique character with a level of detail unparalleled in other games. And customization doesn’t stop at physical appearance. Clothing, body art and vehicles can all be customized using symbols created by the players themselves in our symbol editor. Successful players are rewarded with greater ability to customize so the better you are at the game, the better you’ll look.


    Play Your Own Music!
    The world of APB will be filled with music: you can import your own music files into APB plus we have more than 100 tracks licensed to the game and a sophisticated in-game music editor.

    Customization in this game looks amazing, i wonder how that will affect lag though.

    I'll be keeping an eye on this one.

    You can purchase a retail version of APB either in-store or via digital download at standard retail price (SRP $49.99/£34.99/€49.99). The game includes 50 hours of action game play out of the box plus unlimited time in APB’s social districts customising, socialising and trading on the marketplace.

    Once your game time is up, you have flexibility to top up your action game time from as little as $6.99 (£5.59, €6.29) for an additional 20 hours, while more frequent players can switch to a 30-day unlimited package for only $9.99 (£7.99, €8.99) with discounts available for 90 and 180 days.

    The retail package also contains a bonus 100 RTW points towards your next purchases.

    An additional benefit to this evolutionary model is the ability for you to convert your own customisations and rewards to tradable products to give to friends or clan-mates or to place on the Marketplace to earn more RTW points (convertible to game time) or in-game cash.

    Cool, so if you are a casual player the pay by hour option is the way to go. Or if you are hard core player you can pay for the 30 days option. 8) 8)

    Now this is how all MMO should be.

    I'm in the Beta, but its unjder NDA lockdown, so I won't talk much about it. (Though if you REALLY wanna know something bout it, hit me up on Vent. :wink: )

    Let me just say, if you love PvP and guns, get it. If you hate PvP, dont.

    EDIT: I'm also lucky enough to be in BOTH betas, both EU and NA. Seriously try and get your hands on an NA key. EU times are freakin rubbish.

    NECROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    No not really.

    APB Reloaded has been in closed Beta for a bit, and has now resurged as a F2P MMO FPS. With Micro-transactions.

    I dunno, but so far I'm liking it. I'm just worried about how far the rabbit hole goes with MTs. We'll see.

    Although it is in closed Beta, so AFAIK, I can't talk much about it.

    I play occasionally with some of my mates. The lag can get pretty bad at some times but otherwise its awesome. Only problem is how pay to win it is. The most powerful weapons can only be bought from the store for outrageous prices ($60 AUD for a permanent weapon etc).
    Still lots of fun when you're playing with other people.
