Is it wrong for the Producer of the title to post first?

@jmerriex Depends whether or not Massively readers are getting a batch of beta keys or not :)

So glad to see APB got picked up. And that it's being further refined. It's the only friend I could get my friend remotely interested in. Since she likes GTA. And F2P just sweetens the deal. :D

These are encouraging! I wanted so desperately to lobe APB, but just never enjoyed it. This article convinced me to respond to that "APB Beta" email in my box.

@Ergonomic Cat

So beta emails have been sent? Guess I didn't get picked :/

Anyway, the changes look promising and I can't wait to try the game again. Hopefully, it'll be a lot better this time.

@Khorrax No, beta invites haven't been sent out, those where only notification e-mails to sign up for the beta to the players of APB. Everyone has the same chance to get picked.

@paterah Exactly. Sorry, I should have been clearer. Old subs got a "hey, guess what?" type email.

Not sure about the progression changes but the rest of it sounds pretty good.

Hope the fact that my RTW account had a now defunct email address doesn't prevent me from reclaiming my characters.

I've been so excited about this reboot, and then I read about "premium weapons for lease" and all my joy evaporated. The only thing worse than premium items are premium items you have to keep paying to 'borrow.'

The love the apparent transparency that is going into the redesign of what could have been a great game. They state quite clearly in the post: this is what we're are currently fixing this is what we are planning to fix/add, and why. Those folks over at Gamersfirst know how to make a community happy. I for one am ecstatic about this change of hands and subsequent revival of APB. I think Gamersfirst will make a better game than RTW could have, and they will make it F2P, like it should have been from the start. The way they seem to be going about micro-transactions makes good sense, and it will probably make them good money. Good show.
