Realtime Worlds has announced that the closed beta test for its upcoming MMO All Points Bulletin has come to an end.
Since the start of the closed beta, which kicked off on 8 October 2009, more than 96,000 players have created Criminals and Enforcers to battle it out on the streets of APB’s San Paro. In that time, 4,000,000 crimes have been committed, 1,000,000 arsons, 1,000,000 bombings and graffiti has been coated onto nearly 1,500,000 walls.
“APB is designed to be a community led experience and as such, the community feedback during the Closed Beta has been essential to the development process,” said Dave Jones, creative director of Realtime Worlds. “It is the players who will drive the story forward as they carve out a name for themselves as either notorious Criminals or prestigious Enforcers.”
The final adjustments are being made to the game before players are given the ‘Key to the City’ on Thursday 10 June which will include five hours of game time in the Action Districts and unlimited time in the Social District.
