Reloaded Productions Reveal APB Vendetta, A Pay Once Game On Kickstarter With PS4 Ambitions

Reloaded Productions have revealed All Points Bulletin Vendetta. currently on Kickstarter and after $300.000, APB Vendetta moves away from it's free2play MMO predecessor APB Reloaded and is a pay once game with Mod Support. the game is built on Unreal Engine 3 and is described as having "the insane freedom of movement seen in John Woo and “Heroic Bloodshed” genre movies".

Reloaded Productions describe the combat best by saying:
APB Vendetta features asymmetric dual-wielding, slow-motion, melee combat and a combo system that encourages players to perform stylish takedowns utilizing character-specific finishing moves. Sliding, diving, wall-running and performing parkour-like acrobatics while racking up match bonus points is core to the gameplay.

At time of writing, the game currently has 99 Backers and $12,108 pledged. the $300.000 goal will see the game released on PC. a stretch goal of $750,000 sees your character being transferred from APB Reloaded into Vendetta, a second goal of $1,000,000 will see the creation of a Modding UI and toolset. they list a final stretch goal as the PlayStation 4, however Epic have not yet announced Unreal Engine 3 as available for PS4, but if they do and Reloaded Productions gets enough money they will make a PS4 version that a certain level of backers would get if APB Vendetta's Kickstarter was successful.
