APB Reloaded still among top 5 F2P titles on Steam
Besting gaming juggernauts and iconic brands like Lord of the Rings Online, Star Trek Online, and DC Universe.
APB Reloaded is still popular according to new stats sent by the studio. They say that the game is still popular and is among the top 5 titles on Steam, and that’s for the free-to-play category, where there’s isn’t a staunch competition.
The studio mentioned that as of the beginning of the first quarter of 2013, APB Reloaded resides as the fourth most-popular free2play game offered by Steam, besting gaming juggernauts and iconic brands like Lord of the Rings Online, Star Trek Online, and DC Universe.
“Being a visionary publisher usually means that everyone continually tells you that you won’t succeed, and the run-away global popularity of APB Reloaded is validation that we have found something very special in the free2play space,” said Reloaded Games’ Chief Marketing Officer Rahul Sandil.
“Industry pundits decried our decision to secure the rights to All Points Bulletin and make the game free2play. Game critics and non-supporters doomed APB Reloaded to obscurity once we officially launched, yet here we are, a year later, with global sell-through of the retail version in Europe, licensed distribution in Brazil and Russia, and the game remains a top five most-popular downloaded game on Steam.”
APB Reloaded will be getting more updates like Settling the Score, with an improved District instancing mechanic, a new scoring system that balances arrests, kills and mission objectives, and new way for players to choose their own spawn point after death.
