APB: Reloaded shows off graphic engine improvements

    
11

No, your eyes aren’t fooling you; APB: Reloaded is definitely looking a lot better these days.

The developers have been working on an upgrade to the game’s graphic engine over the past year and are more than happy to show how much better APB looks with the new settings. Among the improvements are a better balanced depth of field, dynamic shadowing, and a rebalanced sky.

“While it’s been incredibly slow to get here, we are making great progress and soon all of you will be able to enjoy a nicer visual experience, and our team will finally have the ability to implement new content and areas using the new engine systems,” the team said.

I’ll freely admit I’m a graphics whore, so this is interesting.  I know we’re supposed to say “It’s about the gameplay, not the graphics”, but I repeatedly found myself putting more time in games with great graphics than I would otherwise, and having trouble diving into a feature-rich game if everything looks like it has leprosy.

Still waiting for that Racing district.  Am a bit worried about going back into the game as the cheating was really bad last time and completely ruined it for me.

But the game itself is still just a glorified lobby?

Dnote Griffs Can’t say the anti cheat program “FairFight” gets them all, but it does get them. I see atleast 5 people a night banned. If a server has too many aimbotters I just changed to a different one. Try not to let them ruin my fun.

Been playing this game off and on for the last couple of years. Currently been playing it none stop. Loving the game, and can’t wait for the engine update.

That said, I am also ready for a new map, new contacts, and new weapon unlocks. They just released a new car you can buy ingame from contacts, and another coming soon.

APB Reloaded needs to show off some actual new content, as in NEW ZONES. This game has been stale since it released.
