All APB beta data to be wiped
Realtime Worlds' Dave Jones has said that they'll be wiping all of the customisations and upgrades achieved in the APB beta test.
Citing compatibility issues with older builds of the game, Jones said that all the beta data will be wiped to make sure the game runs smoothly when it goes live.
Jones said: "Everything we have just now in Beta, we really have to wipe. I mean, it's an online game and there was a lot of stuff that was created in older systems."
"We certainly want an even playing field, with regards to weapons and progression," Jones continued. "We would love to carry over all the imagery and stuff. But to be honest because a lot of it was made in older systems, and we've been in Beta for a long time, the safest thing to do for the game and for the players is to start from scratch. I know it's probably not what you want to hear, but believe me it's for the best."
A level playing field is good news for those who have not been involved in the beta and are desperate to play the game when it releases at the end of June in the US, and the beginning of July in the UK and Europe.
