Xbox One, PS4 Getting APB Reloaded
Free-to-play game will be available to everyone on PlayStation 4, while Xbox One owners will need an Xbox Live Gold subscription.
Scheduled to launch by June 2015, the game won't require a PlayStation Plus membership on PS4, but Xbox One owners will need an Xbox Live Gold subscription to play, Deep Silver confirmed.
The PC version of APB Reloaded has accumulated more than 5 million players since December 2011. The original version of the game, simply titled APB, was developed by Realtime Worlds (Crackdown). However, when the studio collapsed, Reloaded Productions acquired the game and released it again as Reloaded.
Set in a fictional near-future city called San Paro, APB Reloaded lets gamers play as one of two factions: Enforcer or Criminal. The game, something of an MMO, features sprawling multiplayer matches that can reach up to 100 simultaneous players (up to 50 vs. 50).
Similar to other free-to-play games, APB Reloaded on consoles will let players earn new items such as gear, vehicles, and customization options either through gameplay or by spending real-world money.
Deep Silver has not yet shared any images or video of the console edition of APB Reloaded. The game is being co-developed by Reloaded Games and The Workshop Entertainment.
