APB Reloaded lays out its roadmap, hopes to bring the game to Unreal 4
With multiple projects in the works and an effort to bring the console and PC versions into parity, APB Reloaded is enjoying actual development and direction these days.
New owners Little Orbit published a roadmap for the troubled MMO, breaking it down into several different tasks. Strengthening the game’s infrastructure (including “cleaning out the cobwebs”) is a high priority, as is integrating a new client-side anti-cheat system and exploit fixes. Other projects include reducing lag, bringing the game up to the Unreal 3.5 engine, adding console features, and actually adding some new content.
Little Orbit said that it also has a second team devoted to working on an Unreal Engine 4 version of the game: “This will not be a short project, but it has lots of miilestones along the way. We are initially focused on getting the third-person shooter mechanics of APB up and running in one of the existing districts.”
