The makers of crackdown (a popular release on the PS3 and Xbox 360) are developing a new game very similar to popular titles such as the Grand Theft Auto and Saints Row series called APB which is due for release in 2010. I was sent this video this morning which is a video taken from E3 2009, and I have to admit it looks very cool! The video shows very advanced customisation for your own in game character. Although this can be very time consuming, I love working on things like this and have always been very impressed with it on the Fight Night series of games (also by a division of Electronic Arts – EA sports).
The graphics look superb, and this is so far only been schedued for PC release which will disappoint a lot of console owners. A very high spec PC will be required in order to run the game at the display settings used in the trailer, and I’m guessing if it is released on the consoles it may also have to reduce the graphic quality slightly in order to maintain performance.
Anyway check out the trailer, and keep an eye on this one as I think it could be an exciting new release!
