GamersFirst has announced that APB Reloaded has passed the 3 million user mark and is the second most popular Free To Play title on Steam.
A boxed version will also be released in North America, which is set to include $50 of content and will have a RRP of $29.99. A boxed version for Europe is yet to be announced.
Rahul Sandil, SVP of marketing and business development for GamersFirst said:
“We recognized the potential for APB Reloaded to be a true breakout hit in the Free2Play category all through beta testing.
We quickly amassed a vocal, dedicated community, and they’ve been instrumental in growing the game and helping better the experience.
We also attracted a partner in [a]list games, a digital game market maker who launched a worldwide campaign to raise the game’s visibility and help it appeal to a broader audience.
Ultimately, players who discover a new free game decide if there’s enough value and quality to keep playing, and APB Reloaded’s trajectory tells us a growing number are being blown away by what they’re getting.”
In celebration of passing the 3 million mark GamersFirst has released the first big update, titled Fight Club. Fight Club is a new game mode for APB Reloaded that “delivers a pick-up-and-play mode that’s essentially a session-based online shooter with vehicles.”
It’s good to see a resurrected game getting so much support.
