July 4th 2013

Four on the Floor

It’s July in San Paro, which means it’s time for you to break out the barbecue, put the beers on ice and admire the bursts of fireworks lighting up the skyline.

We always like to do things for holidays – maybe it’s having the Easter Bunny walk around the city. Maybe it’s bringing in two psychotic elves that make you dance to their tune to get Christmas-themed goodies. This year for Fourth of July we’ve done the only thing that seemed natural.

We’ve taken a hostage.

How much do you want it?

Let’s take a step back for a second and talk about the normal, non-hostage-taking part of the 4th of July celebrations in APB Reloaded. We’re having an event where all you’ve gotta do is log into the game and you’ll be sent the Uncle Sam Stovepipe Hat. Just like that, a free item of clothing for your character and all you've gotta do is show up. Couldn't be easier. If stars and stripes isn't a year long look for you then grab a customizable Stovepipe Hat in Armas for just 99 G1C.

It wouldn't be the 4th of July without honoring one of the greatest presidents in the history of the United States, would it? Since this is San Paro, though, the word 'greatest' means different things than it does in the rest of the world. He's not a crook, sure, but he's Richard Effin Nixon.


This mask is available through the Joker Store in game for 1000 Joker Tickets and 3500 $APBCash or available for purchase in the Armas Marketplace for 199 G1C and will be available for a limited time as a holiday exclusive release.

Let's not do anything rash here...

I'm sure you're wondering what exactly we meant when we said we'd taken a hostage.
That hostage's name is Asylum.

Last week 11,532,741 characters were killed. If you want access to Asylum, you're going to help push that number to 13,839,289 for this week. Any less and Asylum stays where it is, locked off and just out of reach. Meet the target and we'll bring Asylum back for two weeks. There are even some Stretch Goals (like an Asylum themed weapon skin for taking part), if you're all feeling particularly violent and manage to exceed even our wildest dreams...



Team kills don't count. Kills in Fight Club, kills in Opposed Missions and Kills when you're 5 stars all count towards the global total. This is a worldwide event. It doesn't matter what server you're on, it only matters that you're killing. Kills between 00.01 AM (British Summer Time) on the 4th of July to the 00.01 AM (British Summer Time) on the 11th of July count, so keep an eye on the clock.

Go on. Buy your ticket to Asylum with blood.

    1. It's another district that was talked about in the RTW days (actually it's believed to be the criminal social district back when there were 2 different socials). The released it for a short time during Halloween this last year.

      It was Fight Club with item and point holds as well as your usual kills (wait there might have not have been kill based ones, can't remember)

  7. How about I just don't play and you can rot while not releasing content we should already have permanent access to.

    1. (Pissed off post because you insult us and treat us like shit when you hold new content hostage just to keep everyone playing the same boring crap all the time and to sell us things we don't want on Armas. It's the completely wrong way of doing things. Please reconsider and release Asylum permanently as a BETA Fight Club map until its completion and ready to be turned into whatever it is you have planned, like it should have been during Halloween 2012.)

    2. I think holding it hostage was suppose to be them joking you around ... you know.

      Also, what makes you determine what they should release as content? Do you know how things work? How long it takes, ext?

    3. I think both of ya have a point, but for what I think is that I loved the Asylum last time & if they could just make it permanent for even 4 million kills it would be AWESOME!!! I'd even kill myself this whole 4 millions!

    5. @Ange1ofD4rkness: Joke or not, it's true and it's unacceptable.

      @Stephan_Mcclure: If you've played and paid as much as I have you would think the same way, but you haven't and you don't. You also claim to have a vagina...? roflmao

  8. Now ill just do some driving instead, since apb doesn't want to release new content that they had done for months but yet decide they cannot figure out how to properly make a game.

  11. ATAC 424 NFCP 3 please. It's in the picture so this is relevant.

    ReplyDelete
  12. So all we need to do is kill 20% more than usually? Okay :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. For all you know, last weeks kill count could've been the highest ever, in the past months. Maybe they know we won't reach 13 million kills in one week!

    Besides, why the number 13? Oooooh #Illuminati

    But one thing I know, Asylum was one of the most loved shit APB could ever think of, so this might be possible if everyone knew. WE CAN DO IT~! Go Han!

  14. Stop talking trash here. I think its a good idea to make us kill more dont you think? :) also dont forget that without these guys APB wouldn't exist anymore and would always be remembered as the worst shooter in history! If you think you can do it better, then buy the project and do it yourself! Oh wait, you cant because you have no idea how to make games! Seriously guys... be nice to them.. good work reloaded productions! I will try to kill more people this week ;)

  15. Why not make all guns available in game and make guns be able to be leased for the time you want instead of releasing new holiday events, or fix the lag servers have? I like the game but the quality isn't there

  17. So how many kills is "participating"? I just logged on for the first time for the event and got around 30-50ish. Would that count, or does the number need to stretch into the hundreds?
