Calling all cars -- all three million of them, even. Yes, that's how many players APB: Reloaded
now claims, which allows the game to crack into the top ten games being played on Steam and places it second on the list of free games. That's definitely a big impression, one that couples nicely with the game's recent release of a boxed retail copy with several bonus items for first-time or existing players.
According to Rahul Sandil
, SVP of marketing and business development for GamersFirst
, "[GamersFirst] recognized the potential for APB: Reloaded
to be a true breakout hit in the Free2Play category all through beta testing." The game's new Fight Club gameplay mode hasn't hurt the game's popularity either, which is all pretty good for a game that originally set a record for its quick shutdown. The future of APB: Reloaded
remains to be seen, but the present is certainly looking bright.
