San Paro is a living, breathing, online city, its streets the playground for Criminals and Enforcers. Their mission is to gain fame and fortune, and gain them fast. Criminals take to a life of crime, feeding on the city, its people and its businesses. Other players, the Enforcers, feed on the Criminals.
APB’s world is an online sandbox. Players will achieve celebrity or notoriety for their skills and style. Alliances will be formed, rivalries will be bitter. Every player will be unique. Thanks to cutting-edge technology, players can personalize their looks, clothing, vehicles and music. Earn money, clothing, guns, and cars as you play. Become a top-ranking player or Clan in leagues that track Kills, Arrests, Mission Success rates, and many other competitive stats.
APB is entirely online and multiplayer. However, it's a unique game unlike other MMOs out there. The game runs on fast, high-quality dedicated servers allowing you to enter cities and engage in a new style of game where your actions bring you into opposition with other players dynamically: there's no waiting in lobbies. You can encounter thousands of other players over a short period of time. Our dynamic matchmaking allows solo and group play in missions, against - or with - real people, never an AI.
