1946. Mankind has just suffered one of the most brutal wars it ever faced. While the rest of the world is still rebuilding, a scientist of unmatched genius by the name of Albert Einstein decides to act. With a device he was engineering at a secret research center in Trinity, New Mexico, he travels back in time to kill the person who he sees as the root of all misery: Adolf Hitler. He catches up with Hitler in 1926 and disposes of him without thoroughly considering the consequences, as time will soon tell.

It's now the 1950s. World War II never happened -- at least, not yet. Germany remains a peace-loving country with close ties to other European nations, now facing increased tensions with Russia under Josef Stalin's rule. In order to realize the glorious Marxist dream he has envisioned, Stalin mobilizes the forces of the USSR. His goal? The conquest of Europe. The nations under threat form the Alliance that seeks to put an end to this madman's nightmare before he can see to its completion. The Great World War II has begun.

  • Steamroll over Europe with the high-powered arsenal of the Soviets or repel the invasion with the technological superiority and cunning of the Allied Forces in a team-based FPS inspired by Westwood Studios' hit real-time strategy game, C&C Red Alert.
  • Wage warfare on the land and in air with units ranging from Mammoth Tanks and Chinooks to Phase Tanks and Longbows.
  • Pacifist? Repair your base as an Engineer, support the war effort as a Medic or Mechanic, or infiltrate the enemy stronghold and steal intelligence or assets with Spies and Thieves.
  • Classic C&C economy management comes into play, giving players the choice on what character classes and military hardware they want to bring to the fight. Early infantry skirmishes give way to full combined-arms conflict, with high-tech war vehicles including the stealthy Phase Tank, nuclear Demolition Truck, and high-voltage Tesla Tank!

Inertia Improvements!

@ ChopBam here once again, this time reporting on some inertia improvements. Credit for this next change goes to @ Eggman891 for coding these abilities into our game. There are other inertia abilities available to us also, but the following are likely to be the biggest noticeable changes in APB.

Swimming in the current release version lets you bounce and dodge back and forth instantly. We've touched it up so there will be a bigger gradation in directional changes while swimming. A video will speak much more to this than I can.


Jumping while crouching will no longer offer a gigantic speed boost. See the next video to see what I mean!


There are a few slight other changes due to inertia but they will be less noticeable than those mentioned above.

Per-Round Reload!

We've had the "per-round reload" feature available for a while now, but it's now going to finally be implemented in our game! When you reload your weapon rounds as a Sergeant, Starshina, Volkov, or Phase Tank, you're going to only reload the rounds that you already fired off. No longer do you need to wait for the full reload time if you just used one or two shots. Check it out in the video below!


@ CMDBob deserves credit for making this feature work properly.

Note: We experimented with the ability to interrupt your reloading sequence to fire rounds, but it never felt quite right, so we're keeping it uninterruptible. Still super nifty!

Service Depot New Repair Animation!

@ ChopBam is here to show off his new Service Depot repair animation, based completely on the Service Depot animation that takes place in Red Alert. Those who are extra observant may also notice a change to the cost of repairs. With some things still in the works that are related to this, however, a proper announcement for that feature may come in the future.

How can I change the game file for renegade? I accidently selected the orgins screen file for renegade and not the game client.

Just a formal FYI, I'll be doing work over the week to update our pages a bit. Just a heads up if you see odd things show up under the description!

How do I enable and add bots?

I keep looking in skirmish but I see nothing on how to add bots into maps or maps that have "bots" in the name.

Press F8 to open the console, type “botcount 20”, or whatever number you feel appropriate, and press enter. You'll get bots equal to that number minus the number of human players that are ingame, so in a local game with only yourself, this would give 19 bots, 9 on your team and 10 on the enemy.

Bots are currently supported on the following maps:

Camos Canyon
Complex
Guard Duty (though they have trouble getting in/out of the airfield)
Metro (though they don't buy vehicles or take out the hedgehogs)
Pipeline (though they don't pay attention to the oil mechanic)
River Raid
Rock Trap
Wasteland

Sorry for the late reply! The best way to get support is to join our Discord server. We have a channel for technical support.
