Its free, so what need is there for discs? :)

While it has major issues, it is pretty fun with a group of friends who just want to blow off steam.

Not as competitive as BF/CoD, far more laid back, with customization options unseen before from any other game minus perhaps CoH.

Although their item shop is a complete and utter rip off to be honest. ($30-40 for perm guns, $5 for a *font pack* that has one set of fonts, you even have to pay money for wheels now unlike the original APB)

@Tempes Magus To be sure, we're not ruling out retail boxes - I would be surprised if we didn't do a retail box. We're just saying that the specific deal mentioned is not truly something we've signed onto just yet. Additionally there were rumors that we would be going Pay2Play, which isn't true either.

Once we have all our distribution plans (Retail Box, Pre-Paid Cards, Steam, Direct2Drive, etc) squared away we'll make an official announcement. We're still in discussions and reviewing all our options right now though ;).

With screenshots and a printer you could probably pull that off. And since the game is free to download, if you have discs, paper, and a printer, its still free!

Sounds like a pretty fun project....think I'll try and make one for Wakfu. I'm having lots of fun with it, despite what I've heard.

I really liked this game (despite the tons of bugs and cheating), wasn't anything special, but it was so chaotic it was fun. I'll refuse to go back though if the rumors are true about them having $50 microtransaction guns/cars that give an edge.

Game runs way too laggy on my comp. And I can't fork out 700 dollars for a decent comp. Maybe a better video card, but if that doesn't help, well, then I just can't play this game. Which is sad, because it was fun for the moments it didn't lag..

@Tezcatli wait for the new patch coming soon. I hear from testers that it fixes a ton of stuff, including lag issues.

@Tempes Magus. I also like the feeling of a physical box and stuff, but that wouldnt STOP me from trying something. So you would miss out on a potentially great game, just because it doesn't have a disk? You realise this is the 21st century right? Your loss.

P.S. I'm not saying APB is great, I'm just incredulous that someone would prevent themselves from new experiences over something so trivial.

@jmerriex. What's with the sudden silence? It is clear that G1's priority is now Fallen Earth, but the lack of communication for APB is noticeable and the community is not happy.
