Resurrected free-to-play MMO pulls in up to 30,000 players every day

Reloaded Productions' APB: Reloaded now has 3 million registered users, following a year in which it rarely left the top 5 free-to-play games on Steam.

APB: Reloaded is a free-to-play MMO that was created from the bones of Realtime Worlds' subscription MMO APB - an ambitious project that hit the market just as the subscription model was collapsing, and ultimately led to the demise of its creator.

According to a report on VG247, the game now has 3 million registered users, and hosts between 25,000 and 30,000 players every day.

Reloaded Productions is currently working on an "all new APB experience."

Im glad some positive results have come in for APB. I wanted it to succeed or at least survive. I cant play it cause I own a MAC... but would have loved to give it a try if it could run on OSX.

I bought the first version when it came out, played for 4hours and put it in my closet. Worse waste of money ever, really unplayable. Never tried Reloaded, maybe I should give it a chance.

"the game now has 3 million registered users, and hosts between 25,000 and 30,000 players every day"
If only 1% of the registered users are actually playing the game each day, that suggests a large majority of those accounts are, to all intents and purposes, inactive. Quoting registered users or number of accounts for a game like this is meaningless. What really matters is how many of them are still playing the game regularly, and how much revenue you're making from them.

Having said that, obviously the game's doing well enough to still be running and even to warrant updates, so congratulations to Reloaded.

I'm glad to see that Reloaded have managed to keep the game running, and make a success of it.
As you can imagine, it's not much fun to spend years working on a game, only for the game to shut down, and no one be able to play it.

The game was certainly not perfect, by any stretch of the imagination, but there was definitely enough of a core of a really good game in there that it was worth saving, in my opinion.
