It’s gonna be a big Wednesday for APB Reloaded: New developer Little Orbit is launching the biggest update the game’s seen since the takeover. MMO players will recall that Little Orbit rescued the game, along with post-apoc MMO sandbox Fallen Earth, when it bought out GamersFirst last year, and it’s been developing both games ever since.
The update includes as its centerpiece the APB RIOT mode, more specifically its live beta, and yes, it’s basically a team-oriented battle royale mode, although the studio doesn’t call it that.
“After nearly a year of development, the highly-anticipated APB RIOT mode will bring a new generation of gameplay to APB Reloaded with its introduction of a team-based collapsing map mode. The Beta will be live for players on PC, and offers players the ability to rank-up to earn free rewards and a new weapon skin. Larger ticket items like the RIOT Pass and the updated reward structures will be introduced with the formal launch of Season 01, but players can jump in now and share their thoughts.”
The game will also see the introduction of a new weapon, a revamped in-game store and cosmetic items, and “Easy Anti-Cheat and server upgrades, giving players a fair and fun game with increased stability and speed.”
