The first stage of beta test sign ups are now available for Gamer Firsts relaunch of the once defunct APB,  like a phoenix from the flames its rising under the new title APB Reloaded.  This page gives some information on what to do and what to expect so if you were a past customer of the original game it seems Gamer  First will try to give you back your characters,  names and any special equipment you might have had although they make no promises on refunding any real money spent or character progression most likely because the game they are relaunching will be significantly different enough to warrant a restart and of course since they are a seperate company they don’t have any financial data or funds from the previous incarnation you may or may not have susbcribed to.
