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.

Those who signed up for the subscription-based MMO, which collapsed three months after launch, were invited back to the game by new developer Reloaded Productions. It's a subsidiary of GamersFirst, which bought APB from Realtime Worlds, the original developer who went bust last summer.

GamersFirst publishes free-to-play titles that have done well in Asia; APB: Reloaded will follow the same model, releasing in the first half of this year. Its closed beta should begin Feb. 28.

Dammit, I wanted in on the new beta. Oh well, this gives me time to try out World of Tanks instead.
