APB creator David Jones team’s up with Gamers First in an advisory role to help with development of APB Reloaded, the free to play reincarnation of Jones’s failed subscription based MMO. Bjorn Book-Larsson COO and CTO of Gamers First said the following
“The opportunity to have David reconnect with us during the production of the new ‘APB Reloaded’ game has been great and it lets us take advantage of both a deeper understanding of the original vision of APB, as well as leveraging the strengths of the Free2Play® model used in the new ‘APB Reloaded’ game.”
APB was originaly developed by Realtime Worlds who was also the developer of Crackdown. However, back in the summer of last year RTW filed for administration, which is a process in the UK similar to bankruptcy proceedings in North America.
APB Reloaded will enter open beta on May 18th. However, you can get in a bit early by registering a GamersFirst account
