Urban Warfare Escalates




It wasn’t too long ago, but those early riots seem like a walk in the park compared to life on the streets of San Paro nowadays. Take but a few steps down the sidewalk and you can feel bullet shells roll underneath the soles of your shoes. More shells collect around storm drains and all along the curbsides. You’re moving too fast to even notice anymore. No time to stop and smell the tear gas.

Block after block smoke rises and dims the sky. Be it from fire, gas, napalm – who knows. No time to make out who that silhouette is at the other end of a cloudy alleyway. Secure your helmet and strap that bulletproof vest on tight.

Everyone is trying to represent Criminals or represent Enforcers in their own unique way.  But in the end everyone is the same; everyone is raging on the inside thinking about the loss of friends and family to the cause. No need to show off those tattoos, scars, or war paint to let the world know which side you're on.  Now is the time to cover every last bit of exposed skin you have and make sure you survive.

--------------------------------------

Next week a whole new set of Combat Gear is coming to the Armas Marketplace.  Urban Warfare escalates and it’s time to armor up. 

Enforcers can get the Armored Urban Warfare Pack and Criminals can get the Impact Urban Warfare Pack. Both packs will contain the brand new set of heavier Combat Gear, the never before released 4 Slot Performance Vehicles, and a FREE never before released ATAC 424 mid-to-close range Assault Riffle.  We will also have the Combat Gear sold separately also with a FREE ATAC 424. Here is the breakdown of the NEW Urban Warfare Packs and Bonus Packs coming out next week:

Armored Urban Warfare Pack
·       Combat Gear: Armored
·       V20 Patriot Pursuit Special (4 Slot Performance Vehicle)
·       FREE – ATAC 424 (Mid-to-Close Range Assault Rifle)

Impact Urban Warfare Pack
·       Combat Gear: Impact
·       V20 Nightrider (4 Slot Performance Vehicle)
·       FREE – ATAC 424 (Mid-to-Close Range Assault Rifle)

Armored Bonus Pack
·       Combat Gear: Armored
·       FREE – ATAC 424 (Mid-to-Close Range Assault Rifle)

Impact Bonus Pack
·       Combat Gear: Impact
·       FREE – ATAC 424 (Mid-to-Close Range Assault Rifle)

Players can also have a chance to win these soon to be released packs for free by participating in our “Heavy Metal Fighters” in-game event starting TODAY until Tuesday (Oct. 16th, 12 PM PDT):

Complete as many opposed missions as possible from now until Tuesday at Noon.  The top 500 players with the most opposed missions completed will be entered into a random drawing to win.  10 Winners will get their choice of either new Urban Warfare Pack (depending upon whether they want Enforcer or Criminal), and 10 Winners will get their choice of either new Bonus Pack (Enforcer or Criminal). (For further details visit our APB Forums)

We’ll have more screen shots and images of the new Gear and the ATAC later, but for now here are some concept art and screen images of the new Vehicles and kits.
  







(Please note that players who have previously purchased the Performance Kits will be sent a free update for the new kits, shortly after we have updated the current Performance Kits on Armas.)

Stay tuned for more updates regarding the Armored and Impact Urban Warfare Packs coming out next week and join us for the Heavy Metal Fighters event. 

Armor up San Paro.  Armor up.

    1. Both are getting a Jericho if you read above or bothered to look at the pictures one is a criminal backdrop and the other an enforcers. and in the Pack information it says both are getting the V20 Jericho

    2. I think you misunderstood my question.... I asked if Enforcers would get a mikro, not in this pack because clearly both get a Jericho... just seems like criminals once again, have the better choices.

  5. Opposed Fight Club missions do qualify for the event. Winners are selected by random drawing once they are within the top 500. As for future vehicle designs and future plans for the ATAC please stay tuned. We do not have any news for those at this exact time.

  6. Could you add some outfit screenshots for enfo/crim male/female maybe? -.-'

  7. Hoi, Quinzel, quick question. The concept art for the Enf variant shows what looks like a new lightbar on top (and some interesting body / window lighting), but the screenie has a bog-standard Boomer Raptor. Please tell me that the Enforcers are at least getting improved top lightbars as part of this deal - like my ever beloved Citadel (Seriously, those replacement lightbars rock), since the crims are getting our entire damn car.

  9. Is the weapon included in any of the packs permanent?


    Excellent work by the way. Love the decision to make a variant for both factions instead of just one. VERY welcomed change when compared to the pioneer/espacio ordeal.

    You accidentally labeled the criminal jericho as "enforcer performance vehicle" in the image 'crimvehicle1.png'. There is also a mistake in 'enfvehicle1.png' where it says "Wheel Crim" for the two wheel rims in the lower right. The color is also inconsistent. You should really let someone check that sorta stuff for you guys (I'd do it for free!). :p

  13. "(Please note that players who have previously purchased the Performance Kits will be sent a free update for the new kits, shortly after we have updated the current Performance Kits on Armas.)"
    So what the players will actually receive? Only these kits or the 4 slot car aswell?

    1. They mean the updated versions of the old kits. They aren't giving you the brand new kit for free nor a free 4-slot vehicle.

      Delete
    2. Actually, as i understood, these new kits will replace the old ones, so..

  14. We have updated more images of the packs on our forums - check them out here - http://forums.gamersfirst.com/topic/297317-heavy-metal-fighters-weekend/page__pid__2879561#entry2879561

  15. When s this car coming out?? i want it.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh look, Crims get another one of our good cars. With better looking kits again.

    Enforcers getting the short end of the stick again?

    As an Enforcer, I prefer the crim Jericho Parts - it's like Death Race crossed with Mad Max. Ours is some chunky Robot Wars Delorean lookalike.

    Can't we just have both kits each?

    ReplyDelete
  17. That's fantastic. I mean it. Now if the hacking problem could be dealt with and the community grow up, I'd totally just right back in.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I wonder whether you guys plan to release the new enforcer Jericho body kits on their own in ARMAS - there is a fair bit of popular demand for them.

    And also it might be a good idea to have a look at the Emergency Lighting System (ELS) on the forums under Suggestions. I like that idea very much and I know we just got some new flash patterns and YAY! Im so happy :D But ELS would jsut let us have that much more - a ful lcontrol over flash patterns and sirens or at least some way of using more than 1 siren and pattern on a car.
