Quote of the Day: “Why APB Isn’t an MMO” or “Is MMO Synonymous With RPG?”

The reason we shy away from MMO is because usually, when you say MMO to someone, they don’t hear MMO — they hear MMORPG. And while APB has a lot in common with MMOs, it’s definitely not an RPG.

There’s no character stats, there’s no levels, there’s no skills — the closest thing we have to that is the respect you gain from contacts and organizations for working for them, which allows you to access the better equipment they sell, and some of the functional upgrades that are available in the game. That’s all your characters loadout, it’s his gear, it’s not intrinsic to him leveling up.
