APB: Reloaded. There's new info.

   0
Last week I wrote about the new APB:Reloaded beta starting up. Well, it's one week later, and they let 10,000 people in with the first wave. First concession was letting in players what had participated somehow with the original APB. I know for a fact this allowed atleast one Dtoider into the beta, though no names shall be said... there was an NDA after all. 0=3


Ish a new trailer.

Of course, there's a lot of information still to spill that has nothing to do with the NDA, as GamersFirst has been dropping info through the week. Earlier today/yesterday(depending on what your time zone is) they updated their blog with a post detailing the current state of the closed beta. In a nutshell, a gun is way OP, so it's gonna get nerfed, and server and connection issues persist, so that's their next immediate focus. Oh, and they wanna invite more people in throughout the week.

Throughout the week last week(probably corresponding with GDC), they also released a series of videos showing off the changes to the handling of the vehicles. It's nice to see that they're trying to give each vehicle their own "role" or "place". Of note, is the super cute little two door coupe that they made the new starter vehicle. The original starter car in the original game was a bar of soap on the road. The new car handles amazingly, though it's slow at it's max speed, and it blows up rather quickly.


The new starter car.


On the other side of the spectrum, is the Dump Truck of doom. I'd say more, but I'll let the video speak for itself:


Greif truck of doom ._.

The other vehicles shown off are the Packer Vaquero(a springy car for jumps), the Dolton Fresno(a quick ramming car that can take some hits), and the Patriot Vegas(aka. the fastest car).

So all in all, the folks at GamersFirst sound like the know what they're doing, and are listening to the feedback of their beta testers. Whether they actually get it all done though, is something I can't say right now, but I'm certainly hopeful right now.


See you later cowboy ^.~
