Just been reading a preview of APB and I must say I'm really looking forward to it. If you don't know, it's made by Realtime Worlds (guys who made Crackdown, with a lot of the crew from old GTA games). It's a urban sandbox MMO, where you can either choose to be a criminal or enforcer. There's a really detailed customization mechanic for characters and cars, apparently it's the best ever seen, from being able to drag and drop details such as veins on biceps. There's going to be 100 players at the same time on a server (I guess your characters aren't tied to a specific server), there's a PvE element for each one but it all overlaps with the whole Enforcers v Criminals PvP. So for instance, a criminal could try and steal a car and sell it for some cash, but they could get spotted and all the enforcer players would be notified of the crime and could go and take him down, either by killing him (which gives a 6 second or so respawn time) or by arresting him (which obviously requires subduing him, so would be quite a challenge, but results in a longer respawn of around 30 seconds). The Enforcers also have PvE things they can do, such as escort VIPs, and as well, the criminals could be notified so they can target them. Sounds like it could be an incredibly cool game if it works out well.
