APB Reloaded Open Beta Dated

   0


On monday, the guys over on the GamersFirst Developers Blog updated with a good bundle of information about their immediate plans for the future of APB:Reloaded. This comes with the big announcement that the game will be entering the open beta phase on May 18th, 2011.

Just to catch up, APB: Reloaded is a sandbox style shooter in the vein of something like Grand Theft Auto, where players join either law enforcement, or the criminal underworld. Building upon the original iteration (known simply as All Points Bulletin), Reloaded will be offering improvements to the control of the game, better balanced weapons, new features(such as an improved player progression), and a new free to play game model.



Don't feel sour though at how long away that date is though(even though it's not really that long away), as GamersFirst will be offering early access to people who register a GamersFirst account with the proper credentials. Once they have a GamersFirst account(or if they had one from earlier), they can submit the e-mail linked to the account on the APB:Reloaded homepage where it says "Newsletter Signup Email form", and will be in consideration for admission between now and the formal open beta date.



As for other changes, they are including the ability for people who had characters from the original run of the game and the current run of the closed beta(prior to a recent character wipe) to reclaim their old characters. The big benefit to that would be that you would be able to keep any items/designs/clothing associated with that character, even if your current rank/level/account type wouldn't normally permit it. They are also planning to implement the new matchmaking system, now based on True Skill, the same algorithms that Xbox live is based on.
