APB: Reloaded open beta this month

By Alice O'Connor, May 03, 2011 6:00am PDT

APB: Reloaded, the free-to-play resurrected version of Realtime Worlds' crime-tastic MMO APB, is to enter open beta this month, new publisher GamersFirst has announced.

While all barriers to entry will be officially removed on May 18, GamersFirst will also be letting people in early. Between now and then, access will be progressively granted to those who have registered a GamersFirst account and signed up for the APB: Reloaded newsletter on its official site. The publisher expects to let another 40,000 people in tomorrow.

APB: Reloaded is being developed by GamersFirst's Reloaded Productions studio. The company picked up APB in the wake of creator Realtime Worlds' financial collapse and closure.

It'll be run under a free-to-play model, letting everyone play for free but charging microtransactions for buying or leasing premium items.
