XBox One Launch Day Arrives, PS4 Version in the Works

XBox One Launch Day Arrives, PS4 Version in the Works - MMORPG.com

Gamers First has announced that APB: Reloaded has officially launched for XBox One as of today, Friday, June 3rd. The team also revealed that a PlayStation 4 version is in the works with a launch date to be determined. The letter goes on to remind PC players they have not been forgotten in all the months that the console versions were being prepared. As a result, the team is asking for help with all the new XB1 players that will be heading into the game.

The game will remain in a "Soft Launch" mode for the first 30 days (which mostly means it will have limited public announcements other than the formal launch announcement from the Publisher). During this 30 day period we encourage all current and former PC players to try the game and to give us feedback that we can incorporate into the upcoming updates (note: in order to access the private APB Xbox One forums on our servers you first have to log in to APB from an Xbox One).

As a "thank you" for helping us test the game during the first month, we are giving out freebies to all players who log in AND we will be giving out "Founders" tags and "Founders" skins for those that put in more than 10 hours in game prior to the first patch (or during the first 30 days, whichever comes first). After the first post-launch patch for Xbox One, we then expect to complete launch of the PS4 version as well (final PS4 dates are still TBD).

The blog post goes on about a number of new and improved features that have arrived with the console release but that do not yet exist for PC users. However, there are a number of big ticket improvements that PC players can expect over the coming months:

  • performance optimizations
  • performance improvements via merging distance assets to speed up rendering
  • UI fixes and improvements
  • time of day
  • iris response and bloom tweaks for over-brightness issues
  • engine upgrade

You can read the very detailed post on the APB: Reloaded page.
