Updated / APB Reloaded getting $29.99 retail release

APB‘s free-to-play relaunch under the Reloaded moniker is headed for retail as well as digital distribution, according to the Facebook page of distributor IGS CEO and founder Paul Lombardi (via).

The retail release will carry a price tag of $29.99 but comes with “45 dollars value.” Where said value comes from is left unclear. In-game credits, perhaps.

Reloaded has been in an open beta since May and has accumulated half a million testers so far, Lombardi also reveals.

The game will launch sometime this holiday. No dates yet.
