Proof that you can't keep a moderately okay multiplayer online game down, GamersFirst launches the open beta testing phase for APB: Reloaded. Welcome back to San Paro!
When it stopped taking applications last night, the new owner of APB, the cops-and-robbers MMO, said it had more than 100,000 requests to participate in the beta for APB: Reloaded, a free-to-play reboot.
Beta-testing invitations for APB: Reloaded, the free-to-play reboot of the cops-and-robbers MMO, have gone out, apparently to beta testers of the original ill-fated MMO. Beta players will return to San Paro, with their old characters intact.
In September, Realtime Worlds' cops and robbers MMO APB: All Points Bulletin closed its doors. In early 2011, free-to-play MMO publisher GamersFirst launches APB: Reloaded. GamersFirst CTO and COO Bjorn Book-Larsson tells Kotaku how the resurrection is going down.
Who benefits from Blizzard's controversial decision to use players' real names in forum posts? War Rock publisher GamersFirst hopes it will, issuing an official press release to let gamers know it's all still anonymous there.
