On Nov. 11 the game was bought out by a company and they are planning on relaunching it as a free game, with premium content for people who want to pay or w/e. I don't have the link yet, i remember reading about it on a few websites earlier, I'll get back on here and post it when i find out for sure.

Its been up longer than yesterday, it went back up this past summer. My friends and I logged about 100 hours the first week on it and burnt ourselves out. Only me and one friend still play right now.

It's fun but there are some serious issues with the guns, you can't one shot people not even with a sniper, some of the cash shop guns are way too good, and just general balance issues. The smg is pretty much king, you drive up to anyone on the other team and jump out and hold mouse 1 and you'll probably win.

That being said it's a very fun game in moderation, and not 100 hours a week.... It has some of the best customization in a free game I've ever seen. It's also fun to just mess around in, you can't really kill people unless they're high enough threat and have a bounty on them or if you're in an APB with them (a match), but it's fun to drive around and either commit crimes like a ram raid or bust criminals. Definitely a game that is meant to be played with friends.

One friend also had some issues with his bandwidth because of this, not quite sure why but it had something to do with Pando Media Booster which is also installed with the game.

Over all its fun free game.

Yeah, its been in a Beta since May (but they never activated my beta, so I guess it was a semi-closed beta)

It went on Steam yesterday, for everyone.

That seems odd, it was never a sign up when we played. It was just open beta. We got it off the GamersFirst website.

I had it a year or so ago, when it first started to come out - before the company went bust.

I'm on the East Coast US server since most splakkers seem to be in that area.

Just an FYI for anyone who decides to start playing.
