[PC - MMO]APB - All Points Bulletin

Postby Trell on Fri Sep 18, 2009 8:28 am

Now this is live, a few UKCS people play it on the following server:

Patriot 2 - Enforcers

bliss
priesty
trouble
salva

Feel free to add your username/server/faction and I'll try and update for you, keeping this info at the top!

####Below was all posted PRE release####

Anyone checked out APB yet? I've signed for a Beta spot, hopefully thats coming around pretty soon. It's an MMO with a difference - you play in regions (servers really) with 100 or 1000 players per region (not sure on which it is ><) and you choose to play either enforcer (cop) or criminal (...criminal).

Depending on which side you choose, you get different in game missions, and you can form gangs. You get to stop the other side, kill them, and do all sorts of other cool things.

Customisation of your character and cars/guns etc is one of the most hyped things about the game itself, and from the VERY limited footage Real Time Worlds are releasing in dribs and drabs, it looks rather nice.

You can check out the official site (and sign up for beta testing, although the questionnaire form is rather intrusive) here: http://www.apb.com/

Alternatively, check out the Youtube video of their latest Podcast from Cologne - the gameplay footage is right at the end, but it's quite interesting watching the rest of it too.





If you'd rather watch all their videos, podcasts, etc, then click here: http://www.youtube.com/user/RealtimeWorlds

Yep looks promising.

I heard about a month back it's going to be free subscription, but with micro-transactions. This actually has me worried since the game's biggest boast is the extensively customisable characters and vehicles, I can already see alot of options being locked and coming with price tags. I don't want to be shopping to make my character seem badass. Obviously that's just speculation on my part though.

Edit: Oh yeah, here's the newest trailer.

My only concern is the community i pray to god its mostly adults if it get's filled with 12-13 year olds ill be very disapointed.

Other than that i cant see how the game can fail it looks alot better than GTA4 and thats very good online and very basic in comparison so i expect APB to be much much more fun and indepth.

One question thats been on my mind though is racism. Im wondering if there will be black only gangs , white only , Latin only etc like real life and will such groups fight and treat each other similar to real life gangs but online.

How's that going to happen? People can lie about their age incredibly easily (and indeed a lot will have to to play!).
The best you're going to get (which is more than enough in my opinion) will be things such as 18+ clans - but even those don't guarantee mature people.

The game looks really interesting. I'm not scrambling for the beta, but it's something to keep an eye on.
I might be wrong.

yeh i know, it was more like whisfull thinking^^

but to some degree it can be done. if you have servers that are intended for mature player, more mature players will be on that server rather than the others.
like in wow, i joined a normal server dedicated to italian people(or some other contry, i cant remember xD ) not by wow but the people on the server. all chats are spoken in italian. general, trade etc.
a little advertising goes a long way^^

I've been talking with a few guys who have beta invites and heres a few quotes.

Well you get Clans and then you can group up to 4 people ( mainly so you can roll around in one car)

The level of customising is astounding and you can easily arrange all clothing cars and spray tags to all be unique for the clan. Think of it as how the gangs use to differentiate between in Saints Row.


In a word.

wow.

And I don't mean World of Warcraft!


Basically what he means by this is Me and Tyrus spent 4 hours robbing, shooting and running over Enforcers (Cops).

This game is FUCKING AWESOME.
