Players of APB: Reloaded have been patiently awaiting the game’s long-awaited engine upgrade, but as with any sort of big update not everyone is actually awaiting all that patiently. So it was kind of a big deal when a player managed to slip into the game’s test version and capture screenshots of the 2.1 update running in any capacity, which prompted CEO Matt Scott to pipe up about the state of development as well as addressing the screenshots themselves.
First and foremost, it’s important to note that he confirmed that a player got in without being permitted… but said player also identified the method and contacted the developers to fix it, so Scott is neither removing the screenshots nor penalizing the player in question. Instead, Scott went on to explain that the current test has just a handful of issues and is planning to let players in to beta test it very soon, with just eight more bugs to fix up assuming no other major issues. He also noted that size is a bit of an issue, as the team needs to make sure that the server can handle 500+ players logging in, but it’s a clear sign that this upgrade is coming sooner rather than later.
