    Basically GTA 4 goes mmo :bowdown: been following it for 2 years now.

    Overview:

    All Points Bulletin (APB) is a massively multiplayer online free form combat and driving-based game, designed by the creator of the original Grand Theft Auto (GTA) franchise. Developed by Real Time Worlds Ltd, APB brings players into a living, breathing city where cash is king and territory equals respect. In a fight to dominate the expansive world of APB, players must decide which side of the law to abide by, as Law Enforcement who take on the challenge of supporting and safeguarding justice, or as Gangs, who operate against the law and any opposing groups by any means necessary. APB will provide players with ultimate customization options from their weapons, vehicles and clothes to their attitude, music and environment.

    APB will carry other conventions of the MMO genre, although details are still being ironed out at this point. What's clear is that there will be a monthly fee to play, although it's not clear if that fee will extend to Xbox Live. Players will be able to create multiple characters, as well. There are "headquarters" of sorts within districts that allow players to have an area outside of the combat zone, possibly to formulate strategies, and in the case of criminals, plan heists. While groups can hold up to 40 members, PvP action only allows for 8 of those members to take on 8 opposing players.

    Story

    APB (All Points Bulletin) is a complete free style game based on the real world. Players have to choose whether to be on the Law Enforcement or Criminal side. To be good or bad, it is your choice.

    Features


    I. UNRESTRICTED LIBERTY, ULTIMATE FREEDOM.
    APB is a genre-breaking game unlike any other in the MMOG market in which Gangs commit crimes and Law Enforcement try to stop them, resulting in dramatic chases, shoot-outs, busts, escapes and arrests. A wide range of action-based activities are supported. Those winning an encounter gain status and cash, and the cash can be spent on advanced weapons, vehicles and other kits. Players can carry out these activities individually, or band together into groups.

    II. PERSISTENT TURF WAR.
    Both Gangs and Law Enforcement will continuously attempt to capture key areas of the city and expand their spheres of influence. These turf areas offer access to the best gear, while persistently displaying their owners status and symbols. Territory is vulnerable 24/7, with players constantly engaged in battles for control. For periods when they are not online, players must upgrade their defenses changing turf features or equipping AI adequately or run the risk of losing their turf to a rival Gang or Squad. Capturing multiple turf areas gets progressively harder, but provides correspondingly better rewards.

    III. FULLY CUSTOMIZABLE GAMING EXPERIENCE. .
    Gangs of APB live and breathe graffiti, attitude, customized cars and earning cash any way possible. Law Enforcement up holds honor, teamwork, advanced weapons, and the destruction of the Gangs. Players will determine how their characters live and grow in the APB world without typical MMOG leveling-up constraints. They create the ultimate customized online experience with vehicles, weapons, clothes, music, attitude, and environment. From tailoring characters looks to creating catalogues of shared elements to defining their identity, every crew can have a unique, custom look from hair and clothing down to the way they walk, talk and the music they play.

    Basically :werd:. It's been forever.

    However, this is interesting because it seems to me that this is the natural progression of all games.

    How long until we have an open world MMO that allows you to do whatever you want? Drive, skate, play pro football, shoot people, play uno, etc. That's what I'm waiting for. :x:

    Because I can play pro football and go on violent rampages with minimal consequence in real life? :bigthumb:

    Seriously, this is the direction all games are headed. I think eventually all games will merge to become one "game universe" and individual companies will be designing content, not separate games.

    I could see something like that working out ok. But you'd get all the sci-fi nerds griefing the fantasy fags.

    Sure, but you get that kinda thing in most MMO games now anyway. It hasn't really slowed WoW down, which is probably the closest comparison right now.

    New vids look decent. I doubt it'll be worth a monthly fee to me though.

    I'm not sure how I feel after reading about it a little more. I thought it was going to be an open world like most MMO's. But it's instance based like Guild Wars. So it's basically GTA meets Guild Wars. Ugh.

    The JFusion plugin is not properly configured. Therefore the software can not be displayed.

    I've been pretty excited about this for awhile.

    I'm not sure what side I want to play on, I'll likely play on both.

    Hopefully I'll get in beta :x:
