All Points Bulletin (APB) is an MMO freeform combat and driving-based game. Players must decide which side of the law to abide by, as Law Enforcement who take on the challenge of supporting and safeguarding justice, or as Gangs, who operate against the law and any opposing groups by any means necessary.

APB takes the universal theme of Criminals and Enforcers and brings it to a persistent, open-world, online multiplayer setting in the modern, crime-ridden fictional city of San Paro. Some players will achieve notoriety by feeding on the city, its people and its businesses…the Criminals. Some will live by a higher code and instead feed on the criminals and their organizations…the Enforcers. This dynamic where players become the core content for other players is one of the many unique features of APB. This dynamic where players become the core content for other players is one of the many unique features of APB. Its deep, rich customization system provides players with the ability to completely personalize their identity. Looks, clothing, vehicles and even music, all to astonishing detail and quality.

Where will you stand in the battle for control? Discover unforgettable weapons, experience incredible customization and try to survive a frenzied battle for control of the streets.

Imagine a living, breathing Pacific Rim city, its streets full of vehicles and thousands of civilians going about their daily life. For the first time ever, put such a city online. Introduce 100,000 players to each world and 100 players to each action district instance of the city. Their mission: to gain fame and fortune, fast. Many will become Criminals, supporting themselves by feeding on the citizens of San Paro. Other players will choose to join the Enforcers – and feed on the Criminals.

Every single player will be unique, thanks to APB’s cutting-edge customization technology, with personalized looks, clothing, tattoos, vehicles, and music.

Imagine joining in. Which side will you pick? How will you play? Will you choose to achieve celebrity for your sheer style? Notoriety for your skills with a gun? Will you join a Clan, or lone-wolf it?

Will you do favors for Contacts around the city, completing directed missions, or choose to concentrate on open-world sandbox activities? Do you want to top the leaderboards (tracking Kills, Arrests, Mission Success rates, and other competitive stats) or do you want to stay under the radar, pulling off daring jobs under the opposition’s nose?
