GamersFirst has announced that the reborn APB Reloaded has hit 3 million user registrations, passing the mark shortly after the game debuted on Steam. The game is now the second most popular free-to-play title on Valve's digital distribution service.
The timing for this announcement coincides with the imminent release of the game on retail shelves as a $30 game in Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy and GameStop stores across the US. The retail game will feature $50 worth of content.
The Steam release was also timed with the addition of the Fight Club DLC, which basically adds third-person shooter play set in new maps within APB Reloaded's city setting. The DLC is basically a pick-up-and-play mode that's essentially a session-based online shooter with vehicles.
According to GamersFirst senior VP of marketing and business development Rahul Sandil: "We recognized the potential for APB Reloaded to be a true breakout hit in the Free2Play category all through beta testing. We quickly amassed a vocal, dedicated community, and they've been instrumental in growing the game and helping better the experience."
APB Reloaded is having quite the renaissance since it was shuttered last year by the now-defunct Realtime Worlds before being picked up by GamersFirst.
