Ever wonder if the developers behind APB Reloaded are looking at the current boom of battle royale-style games and kicking themselves for not having the foresight to get in on the craze? Always easier to direct things in hindsight.
At least there looks to be a path forward for the PvP title, what with the GamersFirst acquisition by Little Orbit. The dev team recently sat down to talk about the direction that the game is heading, including the decision to add Battleye to counter cheating, building up APB’s infrastructure, fixing mechanics, and unifying the console and PC versions.
This development will benefit the title, which is still sporting an active population no matter what you may assume. Rock Paper Shotgun sent a reporter in to talk to players about why they’re still engaging with APB with so many other options out there. One player said that he feels the title is “like a unicorn” with its unique features, such as the varied missions and creator.
“APB has more of an e-sports like feel to it. But it also has its open world,” he noted.
