APB Patch 1.3.0

Recommended Posts


Today we bring you an interesting first look at the patch notes of the upcoming APB 1.3.0 patch. These fixes and changes are issues that we highlighted early on, or didn’t quite make it into earlier builds.

1.3.0 currently has no definitive release date, but will be here soon. You’ll hear more from us on that in the near future!
