It takes place in large city districts with up to players playing randomised missions against each other in the same server. With a much smaller team size initially 6 development members, growing to eventually around 30, down from over at Realtime , we had to learn to wear a lot of hats. In particular I took over all design duties, from new system design to balancing, events, level design and implementation. In the initial six months before we re-released the product, I rebalanced the game from scratch, aiming for a faster gameplay style that lowered the skill floor significantly to allow newer players to compete, while keeping the skill ceiling high. I also re-tooled the progression, making individual reward points come more frequently, especially during the first few hours of gameplay. I also removed all traces of vertical progression, designing a new zero-sum modification system for character, weapon and vehicle alterations, among other similarly far reaching changes. This was done using often unfamiliar custom tools with no documentation and no embedded knowledge in the team. Going forward, I’ve designed and implemented a number of core system improvements over the years, often working from high concept requirements from other stakeholders. Working with a small team on a live product that necessitates frequent updates provides interesting design constraints, and as such most of our developed content has been smaller content updates and incremental improvements rather than huge updates.
Right of Way achievement in APB Reloaded
Little Orbit, the games publisher that was founded back in , has had a good run with producing video games, and it even took over a successful Kickstarter that was funded back in In addition to being a publisher, the company has its free to play games on its website, and users can also use the site to make mictrotransaction purchases for any of its games directly through the portal for convenience.
To reward the dedicated community of APB Reloaded players, the company has aggressive plans to update the title. These updates will include better and more consistent communication from developer to community, cleaning up the forums in order to make it a more concise, coherent experience, a brand new roadmap of future content updates, and a complete rework of how to handle banning and cheating procedures.
We end up getting into a completely unfair 3v1! Also a pretty solid match with us bantering in the background.

APB Reloaded has a new owner with big plans for the future
Why are people still playing APB Reloaded? I left that question unspoken when I wrote about Little Orbit picking up the cops and robbers MMO a couple of weeks ago , but you can bet I was thinking it. The first notable thing that happens when I launch APB is that it plops an advert into my browser like an unwanted, unexpected turd. The second thing happens when I press the random button on the character customisation screen, and instantly see a cop who resembles a slightly less beardy Bob Ross.
I wait for a spot to open up in one of then, jump in and send a message through the district chat asking for people to interview. When I get no reply, I decide I better get on with stopping some crimes.
FIX THE MATCHMAKING! By L0uX, October 14, in Social District (General Discussion) · apb reloaded.
Little Orbit has taken the huge step forward in removing the restrictions of region-locking characters. Eventually, the servers will be changed in allowing players to play with players all around the world. This post also addressed the name conflict problem as players who have not logged in within the last year will have their name released so new and existing characters can use it during and after the merge. This refers to the eventual Engine Upgrade in which the game will move you from district to district to optimize matchmaking.
This helps eliminate the spam-clicking to enter a near full district. Hi all, During the coming weeks, we will be disabling special characters Cyrillic, Latin, etc in names and flagging all names that contain special characters for a forced change. The goal is to finally open all characters across all regions.
E3 2011: Spotlight On – APB Reloaded
Publisher and developer Little Orbit announced today via press release that it has acquired the games portal GamersFirst. With this acquisition, Little Orbit promises content updates to APB Reloaded, as well as improved community management and communication with the player base. GamersFirst is a game distribution platform with over 23 million registered users.
For APB: Reloaded, Little Orbit promises an “aggressive update guns, vehicles, maps, play modes, and matchmaking planned for the first.
It’s chugged along since those long-ago days, although its last listed update on Steam came out in mid, and while the player base has slowly, steadily declined over the years, its average concurrent player count is still hanging in around the mark. That’s not bad for a game of that vintage, particularly one that doesn’t have a major publisher behind it. And it may be about to get some new life. Game publisher Little Orbit, which took over the Kickstarter train wreck Unsung Story last summer, announced today that it has acquired GamersFirst, the parent company of Reloaded Productions, and all the games it owns.
The first 30 days will be dedicated to updating privacy policies, the code of conduct, and terms and conditions. Social pages will be cleaned up, a new forum launched, and “a significant change to our banning and cheating policies” will be announced. After that, the focus will turn to new content, including—hopefully—a new mode, maps, clothing, guns, and vehicles. A new competitive matchmaking system is planned, as is a transition to Unreal Engine 4.
I know that this has been talked about extensively in the past, and it has been a sore point with the community for a while,” Scott wrote. We need to start by unifying the PC version on Unreal 3. It may not even be noticeable to some. But for APB Reloaded to have long-term viability, transitioning to Unreal 4 is something we need to do. Can APB Reloaded be brought back to some kind of relevance by a new publisher?

Free-to-play, massively multiplayer online action game APB: Reloaded, which was released for Windows PC in , is coming to PlayStation.
All this means that the initial mission experience is somewhat odd. After tooling around enjoying the vehicle handling for a while – cartoony, but weighty, responsive and surprisingly entertaining given the keyboard controls – we start missions which might be characterised as “raids” or “pickups” but simply involve going to a checkpoint, clicking on something and going to the next checkpoint until you’re done. It seems undramatic, but this is just the first automated step of the action in APB, and the “players as content” matchmaking is layered on top.
It’s basically a way of getting yourself noticed. On our second such mission, a Criminal team is alerted to what we’re up to and told to stop us. Defensive firefights ensue; we improvise cover from nearby vehicles as we try to complete the mission within a time limit, battling against our opponents and some rather distant spawn points although, with even Enforcers being able to steal and jack cars, travel is always fast.
Then we’re called in to interrupt some criminals on a mission of their own, the APB itself arriving with an siren sound and a notice splashed across the screen. Even though it might be followed by a tense wait for opposition to arrive or a vehicular scramble across town, this dynamic, in situ matchmaking is APB’s calling card, its signature, and a pulse-raising thrill unlike anything else in gaming.
Little Orbit Acquires GamersFirst and APB Reloaded
Games Beat. The studio has been steering toward this since last year. It has accrued five years of experience with live services, helping developer Hex Entertainment with its ongoing content development for its digital card games like Hex and Shards. And it acquired Unsung Story from developer Playdek, a tactical RPG that ran a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter but languished without much progress.
APB Reloaded is a Free2Play massively multiplayer online third-person GamersFirst released details on upcoming matchmaking system.
Thanks a lot for the Update! Even let us know that you are reading the Pages Manual of your fancy missing network Stuff, than say nothing. Im looking forward to the announced changes! And the EU servers of course. If you found only 60 hackers that is a big disappointment. To add insult to injury, you keep the hackers? They’re not a secret organization they have youtube videos of what they do. But to be honest I think it would be well over 60 people that are currently cheating.
If cheaters were insta-banned then how would they collect information about the cheats to help in the long-term? Common sense much. Even RTW unofficially admitted that one in three was hacking towards the end of retail. I REALLY like those ideas for ratings, and possibly even player made matches, although they might be easily exploitable.
