APB Reloaded is the free-to-play (F2P) adaption of 2010's APB. APB was bought from its original developer Realtime Worlds by GamersFirst then further developed by their studio Reloaded Productions. APB Reloaded is a competitive MMOG set in a contemporary city, with a strong emphasis on team-based player vs. player (PVP) combat. Two factions, Criminals and Enforcers, battle it out on foot and in vehicles to earn in game currency and gang standing. The game also has extensive customisation systems that allow players to create unique characters, clothes, vehicles and symbols. Being free-to-play, APB Reloaded introduced optional real money transactions that allow players to increase their mission rewards, rent or buy equipment, and gain access to additional assets for customisation purposes. APB Reloaded was initially released digitally in December 2011, including on the Steam free-to-play section. A physical boxed copy is also sold in the US and Europe that contains redeemable codes for in-game items.

The city of San Paro is a crime-ravaged metropolis in the midst of political upheaval. The introduction of the City Security Act has caused the creation of the Enforcers, licensed vigilantes who take to the streets in an effort to stop the Criminals where the Cops couldn't. The Enforcer faction believes that it is a force for good; the Criminal faction believes that its city and freedom are under threat. But who has the right of it: Criminal or Enforcer? Your decision is to choose which of these two factions has your allegiance. In a fast paced PvP action game, you must fight for the survival of your chosen faction, gaining standing with several organisations along the way. In doing so, these organisations will provide you with new and exotic weapons, vehicles, and clothing that will not only change the way you play but will affect how cool you look and sound when doing it.
