APB: Reloaded
Basic Information

The city of San Paro is a crime-ravaged metropolis in the midst of political upheaval. The introduction of the City Security Act has caused the creation of the Enforcers, licensed vigilantes who take to the streets in an effort to stop the Criminals where the Cops couldn't. The Enforcer faction believes that it is a force for good; the Criminal faction believes that its city and freedom are under threat.

But who has the right of it: Criminal or Enforcer?

Your decision is to choose which of these two factions has your allegiance. In a fast paced PvP action game, you must fight for the survival of your chosen faction, gaining standing with several organisations along the way. In doing so, these organisations will provide you with new and exotic weapons, vehicles, and clothing that will not only change the way you play but will affect how cool you look and sound when doing it.

About the Game

Back in the days when Grand Theft Auto was king of the sandbox, an occasional player would think "This is fun, but I'd love to be doing this with other players". Apparently, one of those players was original GTA creator David Jones, who developer the concept as an MMO with APB: All Points Bulletin. When the original subscription-based game failed to find its audience, publisher K2 Network aquired the game and reworked it as the free-to-play APB Reloaded, lowing the barrier for entry while providing the same core experience.

APB is set in the fictional city of San Paro, have completely overrun the streets, robbing civilians and businesses at will and opening fire on law enforcement. Feeling there is no other way to contain the violence, San Paro's Mayor authorizes the creation of the Enforcers, basically a group of legitimized vigilantes who can fight crime on their own terms. Players choose between either the Criminal or Enforcer factions and duke it out on the streets of San Paro.

For anyone especially familiar with shooter and MMO conventions, APB will initially comes off as an obscure combination of both. The action is designed for fast-paced shooting and car chases, while the environment and leveling system have more in common with World of Warcraft than GTA. Players who are weary of being hand-guided through lengthy tutorials may miss them somewhat after being unceremoniously dropped into open firefights. Thankfully, things start to balance out after your character partners with other players and adjusts to the sharp learning curve.

The bulk of gameplay is rooted in randomly assigned PvP quests, giving one faction a series of goals and tasking the other with stopping them. If teams start to become unbalanced, players can call for backup to request the aid of other players, slowly turning each match into a bigger conflict. On the Enforcer side, this gives a strong sense of being able to respond to dispatches, and helps the player feel like something is always happening. Players who aren't interested in group work can go out and play in the sandbox world, although options are relatively light by comparison. NPC enemies do show up from time to time, although not nearly in the same volumes as human players. More interesting is the Prestige and Noterity System, in which successful players are increasingly targeted by the opposing faction until obtaining a server-wide bounty. When not in combat, players can take advantage of the social district, interact with other players, and purchase a huge array of weapons and customization features.

If you enjoy fast-paced PvP-based gameplay in a GTA sandbox, APB: Reloaded will probably be right up your alley. And if you're still uncertain, APB's's free-to-play status ensures that anyone can find out for themselves.
