Free-to-play cops-versus-criminals online game APB Reloaded is now available on Xbox One, publisher Ravenscourt and developer Reloaded Games announced today. Today's stealth release marks the MMO's console debut, which was announced in early 2015.

APB Reloaded is free to download, but requires an Xbox Live Gold subscription to play. Players can purchase in-game currency, which can be spent on the game's extensive customization features, in bundles that range from $4.99 to $199.99.

In APB Reloaded, players choose to align themselves with either the Enforcers, tasked with keeping the peace in San Paro, or the Criminals, who partake in robberies, vandalism and other bad behavior.

The Xbox One release comes with a Founders Pack, free premium items that unlock if players log in during the next 30 days. Those who play APB Reloaded for more than 10 hours during that 30-day window will receive an exclusive title and weapon skins.

APB Reloaded has been available on Windows PC since 2011. The game was originally known as APB: All Points Bulletin, and was developed by Realtime Worlds and published by EA. David Jones, who was behind the original Grand Theft Auto and Crackdown, was responsible for APB's game design. The MMO survived just three months after it debuted in 2010, but was revived when K2 Network purchased rights to APB and relaunched it as a free-to-play game.

Deep Silver and Reloaded Games announced PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports of APB: Reloaded last year.
