See APB Reloaded’s upgraded engine in action

Slowly but surely, APB Reloaded’s dev team has been upgrading the game’s visuals to a higher level of fidelity. We’ve seen screenshots before, but today the team posted a sneak peek at the upgraded engine being put through a render test.

In the same post, the devs talked about other projects that they’re working on or have completed. The team’s added the Euryale to the loyalty reward counter, completed an event tracking system, and is in the midst of giving the official website an overhaul.

Check out the new graphics engine in action after the break!

PizzaDoh SOE had the same feeling about Everquest 2 and it turned out they were wrong. They split the EQ community in two and player population in EQ2 was a disappointment. Smedley made a public admission about this many years ago.

PizzaDoh NomadMorlock Akami Elijah Crow They have a new program on top of the old Punkbuster called Fair Fight.  You can see it actively banning people in general chat as it announces when it has banned someone.

This has helped a lot but I think a few hacks occasionally get through between updates.  No where as severe as it once was however.

PizzaDoh NomadMorlock Akami Elijah Crow They upped the protection. I recall them using the same anti-hack that titanfall used.

I think they started, then the new gen systems came out, then UE4 came out, and then sticking with UE3 seemed like a waste of time.

Every time I hear Phoenix – 1901 I still think of this game. Spent countless hours on this one back in the day. I’m still shocked we haven’t seen anyone use something similar to their customization system, it was amazing. Might have to pop back in and see the new gfx when the time comes.

@PizzaDoh I think with the engine upgrade they’d be able to add new content to the game much easier and have that planned for down the road.

What is this APB Reborn?

NomadMorlock Akami Elijah Crow Is that because they’ve upped their protection or because interest in the game is extremely low and people aren’t bothering hacking it any more?

Akami Quincha I was thinking during the video if it’d be better to just leave APB and make “APB 2” with the new engine where it’s more or less the same with some updated mechanics etc.

I feel like it’s much easier to drum up attention with a new game than it is an update to your old existing game.
