Realtime Worlds' MMO "APB" tried to do a few things differently, but now that the game has been shut down while its company deals with the U.K. equivalent of bankruptcy, those who bought it less than three months ago may be curious to know how they can go about getting a refund for gameplay that they'll never be able to enjoy. Well, the official word from the firm handling communications for Realtime Worlds right now is directing those requests to the retailers who have been selling the game.
The game came with 50 playable hours out of the box, though additional hours and subscriptions were available and digital RTW Points were exchangeable for hours via the company's website. Refunds from those purchases will reportedly have to be requested from the administrators handling RTW now.
This sounds like quite a mess, not only for players, but for retailers as well. It's got to be exceptionally aggravating to go through the trouble figuring out where to get your money and if you're going to get it back without a hassle, especially for amounts as low as $6.99 or $9.99. Without any servers running to host games, though, that money isn't going to translate into any fun or recreation anytime soon.
