APB Reloaded Announced for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
APB Reloaded has been announced to launch in the “second quarter of 2015” for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The free-to-play online shooter will not require a PlayStation Network subscription on the PlayStation 4. However, the Xbox One version will still require the mandatory Xbox Live Gold membership.
Both console ports are being developed at The Workshop Entertainment, the same studio that previously has worked on The Evil Within and expansion packs of Borderlands 2.
Similar to the PC version, APB Reloaded on the consoles will feature micro-transactions. Players will have plenty to choose from the store in terms of gear, gadgets and various customization options.
APB was originally launched for PC in 2010 as APB: All Points Bulletin. After the studio’s collapse, the game’s rights were sold to Reloaded, which relaunched the title under the new name and as free-to-play. Since 2011, APB Reloaded has managed to accumulate more than five million players.
Players play as either the Enforcer or Criminal faction in the fictional city of San Paro. Objectives overlap similar to other sandbox titles we have come to play. Multiplayer matches can reach up to 50 vs. 50 battles and allow each player to be trigger happy.
