Much Love is in the Air

Hello Citizens

We got a lot of feedback on the forums regarding last month’s blog post from TechMech and myself. I will go over some future plans later in this blog, but first let me present what we have in store for you this month.

Now that February is here, you all know what that means? A time for love, heartbreak and of course action. We have been busy with the engine, matchmaking and other game upgrades so APB Reloaded will be offering you something old and something new for this month.  This year we see the return of the Valentines Massacre Event which will run from the 11th to the 25th of February. New and returning players will be given a chance to earn themes, skins, weapons and a whole lot of other prizes. 

With love comes heartbreak and brand new for this year is the 7 Stages of Heartbreak trophy. Players just need to log in on any of the 7 days of the event and play 3 matches during each visit. Earn new titles (7 in total) and reward yourself with a unique arrow quiver backpack that is not earnable or available anywhere else. 

This backpack will be the first of many participation trophies available throughout the year, so don’t miss on the first one that starts the ball rolling.

Now on to future plans.

We realized with last month’s post and from threads on the forums, that people want more communication from us on what is going on and what will be taking place.  So, as the game's Creative Director I am happy to say that I will be conducting a Q&A session where myself and appropriate team members will answer your questions. This will also give me a chance to ask you, the APB player about what you like in the game and what your thoughts are regarding specific aspects of the game.

This new thread will start next week in 2 weeks and will contain a bit of info about myself, what I do and how the questions and answers will be presented. I am looking forward to it and am excited on the information being exchanged.

So enjoy the Valentine Massacre Event, earn that unique Valentine Quiver Backpack and see you on the forums.

Stay tuned for next week’s post, where Jobs will talk about the improvements to our servers that you can expect in the coming months.

Till next time
