I saw this last night and I'm not entirely on board based on what it sounds like and looks like in other games shown on the Anzu website. I fear that it will ruin APB's lore/world to an extent, as it will most likely replace many of its fictional companies/adverts which takes away from a game's world (unless its some racing game of course). I'm not even educated much on the APB lore and I still feel that way. But it is a "revenue that doesn’t come from the gamer’s pockets" so thats a good thing. I am curious to see how they go about doing this.

thought u played at low settings anyway so u wouldn't see the ads

As long as they do NOT remove the current fictional brands and just find places to place them elsewhere (like on cabs and bus stops) I will be fine. 

 

People would go mad if they replace the current in-game brands.

that's the fault of the journalist, not little orbit.
matt scott already cleared that up. it's 10m registered accounts, not active players.

That's a lot of people who were at one time interested in APB.

Going to be interesting how many can be made to hear of the new engine.

Do people actually look at billboards while playing? not the player graffiti ones, but the ones that will be replaced by real ads.

I've got over 5k hours in APB, and I don't think I can tell you what is on any billboard anywhere.

Other than the IO  Growl billboard , I am not sure either.

Lets just hope that deal doesn't include any thirdparty tracking/spyware/malware nonsense coming from the ad company that gets patched onto our computers from the games patcher then. As long as its just some textures placed in a non intrusive ways that don't affect playing performance negatively without any active program components that track or spy on us it would be fine.  I've uninstalled games before that included redshell.

They could also take the opportunity to try and team up with actual brands to add clothing items and such so that at least some of the displayed in-game ads make sense. Like people actually wearing in-game nikes or something like that. You get the point.

those are individual accounts, not individual people.  People reroll new accounts all the time.  I hardly think its 10 million unique people since the beginning of the game lmao.  Its taken them 10 years to reach that number.  😛

speaking of real life ads, anyone remember when G1 made this?

Cool, Just hope they leave some actual lore ones intact like the big screens on some of the buildings like the Effigy ads and stuff.  Replace all the Growl billboards please.

Also some of the Red Hill Institute Billboard could be used, and the civilian taxis are good placeholders for ads in-game. (and I'd really hope the L.O. is specific with what ads they allow, pushing for adverts that match the game's style and potentially the lore)

Even if every 50 accounts = 1 person, that's still 200,000 people.

Compared to our daily average of 500 or so, that's pretty good.

That live action trailer always made me want to get back into playing when I was away from my computer for a few weeks, and the trailer came across my youtube recommended.

Steam Charts only shows concurrent players which tells us how many Steam Users are in game simultaneously rather than the active player base.

 

I would say 1k, Citadel together Jericho Avg. Players, but i don't think more than that (actually)

Sorry, I didn't realize that is what you meant, but yeah Jericho is pretty dead.

Jericho lately only peaks at around 250 or so, Citadel 750 or so.
