APB Reloaded is free for XBone.

The GTA-inspired APB: Reloaded has quietly launched on Xbox One today, marking the long-running free-to-play MMO's console debut.

BONUS!!!
The developers are calling this a "soft launch," hence the relatively quiet release. Those who play the game during its first 30 days (or before the first patch arrives, if that should come sooner) will receive a free Founders Pack, which consists of things like the Fireworks Flare Launcher and a vehicle. If you play more than 10 hours during this period, you'll also get an exclusive in-game title and some weapon skins.


All Points Bulletin was first released on PC in 2010 as a subscription-based MMO. It was developed by Grand Theft Auto creator David Jones' studio, Realtime Worlds, which is best known for the original Crackdown. APB was essentially pitched as an MMO version of GTA, but it struggled out of the gate and was sold off and then re-released as a free-to-play game under the name APB: Reloaded in 2011. It's now developed by Reloaded Games and published by Ravenscourt.

Seriously, didn't anyone ever teach you to quit while you're behind?

It's not in a good enough shape to play but if you are interested in the freebies for later download and install and get them. A lot of FPS drops and stuttering still smh the engine upgrade ain't do shit

Upvoting because the OP explained why they quietly released it and then removed it from the store.

Been playing this game for years on PC, it's fun. It's in "soft launch" for Xbone for the first 30 days so they might be working through bugs.

Note to any parents, or people not familiar with this game. It's Free To Download, but the actual in-game experiences cost money. You won't be able to enjoy the game unless you spend money making in game purchases.

Not true. I haven't played this game in particular yet (although I'll give it a go on the Xbone), but very few F2P MMOs are impossible without spending money. The devs know that many people can't or just don't wanna spend money on the game, so in most cases they make sure there is a way to unlock most game-altering items (such as bad-a weapons) through grinding free content.

Content that is exclusively behind a paywall in most cases are simply cosmetic items.

Anyone who has real experience with APB specifically should chime in, but I doubt these devs are any different than the devs of hundreds of other F2P MMOs.

Yes, I am. This game is Free to Play, with the option of spending money to improve your clothing, and weapons. A free to play game being free is not really a Hot Deal, so I am just letting people know that in order to gain an edge in this game, you'll probably need to spend $$$

I have played APB:Reloaded on Steam for a while and I must say it's not impossible to compete against those who have spent upwards of $500 (And I'm generalizing, many have spent much more... In fact many brag about how much they've spent as if it's something to be bragged about)

The fact of the matter is all the weapons on the market that cost $$$ have a bit better stats than their normal counterparts, but if you are any good at third person shooters then you'll be just fine

Lot's of customization options for players/vehicles and symbol/music creation, if you're more of the creative type as well.

Only thing I found dumb about this whole ordeal is that they didn't release it for PS4 as well...

No, I mean about your Games With Gold statement. You never mentioned it until I replied to you. I'm just confused how that came into play.
