We've not covered MMO All Points Bulletin
, better known as APB much here on bit-tech
before but in part that's down to its long and convoluted development and the fact that as we've been beta testing it, we're under NDA. What we can say is that it's a cops-and-robbers game with players forming both the forces of law and the forces of disorder. The character creator is exceptionally detailed, and as well as fighting on foot, you can jump in a car and drive around like a lunatic.
Developers Realtime Worlds have been beta testing the game for months, and it's now close to completion. The developers are running a special weekend long event to celebrate, called Key To The City - and we've got a few keys to enable you to see what the fuss is about.
Here's what you get: "Your Key to the City, you will have unlimited access to the Social District (where you can customise your characters, clothing and car, design symbols, play with the music editor and use the marketplace), and five hours of gametime in the Action Districts.
We're going to give them away using our Twitter account
, starting at 4pm UK time - that's in 1 hour from now!
In order to win a key, you'll need to be following us on Twitter and send us a message - using @bittech in the message entry box on Twitter.com or in your Twitter client - with the name of your favourite cop or robber. Once you've got your key, check out the FAQ here
for instructions on how to redeem it.
Please note, these are for UK and European users only!
