All Points Bulletin: Beta Application Keys Coming This Week

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,659MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

A new post is on the APB Reloaded blog site with information about the beta application keys to be sent out this week. Beta application keys, according to the blog, are different than actual beta keys in that they allow players to apply for access to the beta. The new blog post goes into more detail about the process recipients need to go through to gain access to the beta.

First and foremost we want to be clear that Beta Application Keys guarantees that you will have a chance to APPLY for access to the APB Reloaded Closed Beta, regardless of how you received your key (from us, through one of our media partners like IGN or from fan sites, since we will be handing out application keys in the next few days to select partner sites as well).

The closed beta is an important final testing step in our development process that requires a number of diverse system specifications, locations, languages and OS configs. Due to the need to test many diverse configurations, every individual we admit to the closed beta will be selected in accordance with the need to test various parameters (therefore; giving us false info, such as claiming you are close to a server when in fact you are far away will be of no help in improving your chances of getting admitted, since we might in fact NEED people that are far away for certain tests). And because we had such LARGE number of people apply (150,000+), we need to slowly roll out the beta in several waves.

    Looking forward to testing this, maybe this time they can implement our suggestions!

    It took the closure of the game to make you realize just how much fun it actually was. Looking forward to the re-release.

    What killed the game in the first run was the silly payment system and all the cheaters. If they haven't found a way to stop cheaters effectively then game wont live long again sadly, no matter how fun it is.
