GamersFirst Starts Closed Beta Applications for APB Reloaded
GamersFirst has released application details for the closed beta for their upcoming free-to-play relaunch of APB. As is to be expected at this early stage, there's not much to do besides signing up to be in the pool of beta applicants. GamersFirst will later be contacting applicants to gather data, including "among other things, your DxDiag (if you don't know that is, then you might not be a great closed beta candidate) and some additional information about you, as well as about your system and your own background as a gamer."
The data collection process will begin "About 2 weeks before the closed beta (which probably means on or about the first week in February)." GamersFirst is looking for 6,000 - 8,000 participants for the closed beta, with that number growing once the dev shifts to open beta.
The post, linked above, also gives some details on what players of the original game will and won't be able to carry over into this one.
