Third District Sneak Peek

Third District Sneak Peek - MMORPG.com

The APB Reloaded dev blog has been updated with information about the "Third District". The team is overhauling what was once The Asylum and redesigning it with new game modes. The team has provided some nifty screenshots to tease fans about what the area's new purpose and game modes will be. In addition, Zak "Qwentle" Littwin discusses things that "should" have been in the game from the get-go and what the priority list is for the new iteration of APB.

Missions:

To be frank, a lot of the current missions are not up to the quality bar that we expect. They focus extensively on spots that can be camped, requiring one team to do something and the other team to pick them off. While this can be fun for some of the game play, it can also be incredibly frustrating in the long term, especially in an area that's very defensible. On the other hand, there are an absolute ton of missions (around 250 or so), and changing them all is a gargantuan task. As such, we're working to fix them incrementally over a decently long period of time.

We're going to add a contact to each district that you don't level and gives out new missions that we'll add that will be more fun for all participants. As the new missions get positive feedback, we'll replace the worst offenders from the existing missions with the new ones. This should hopefully allow us to constantly be phasing out sub-par content and replacing it with great stuff, without just stripping out too many things from the beginning and accidentally leaving too little content. At the same time, we'll be fixing the mechanics on all the existing missions that are broken at a base level to improve the experience (top contenders for fixes include Hold Item, Territory Control, VIP and Chase missions).
