For those of you who have been long time readers, it will be no surprise to you that I’m a big fan of All Points Bulletin. What’s not to like about it? It’s a game created by the man behind the Grand Theft Auto series. It has a great development team behind it, it will have a great release, I think.
APB is being hailed as the multiplayer Grand Theft Auto, and some even say that APB is how Grand Theft Auto 4 multiplayer should have originally been. Though the developers try to make a clear distinction between the two, you can see some similarities in gameplay, style and graphics.
APB will not be having a monthly paid service, though it will be making some use of a subscription based payment. Maybe yearly instead, but what ever it chooses, it will be a game to be remembered. 10,000 users per world, and 100 users per city. It will be an immense game of cops and robbers, while at time offering a moment for a deathmatch. People may say that it is bland, in that it is a deathmatch and cops and robbers game, but you should seriously expect more from the man behind the GTA series. With an extremely robust character customization system, as well as intense chases, physics, civilians and an intriguing level up system, you should not consider this anything close to bland.
Though not much has been revealed, what is confirmed is the sheer amount of fun and things you will be able to do. Enjoying a constant battle between criminals and cops, you can expect to see some interesting and cinematic moments in this game. Though it may not be as extremely indepth and well made as Grand Theft Auto 4, it will do what it was made to do extremely well. You most likely will not see any replicate people unless they’re modelled after a celebrity or well known figure. Just know, you should keep your eyes out for the release of APB when ever it is released, it’s one of the games I’m most enthusiastic about.
