In the first week since it officially relaunched, GamersFirst MMO title APB Reloaded has attracted 3m users.
It's a great start for a game that suffered the most brutal of failures when it was initially released last year.
The game was seemingly left for dead in September 2010 when, after just 79 days on the market, servers were closed and its developer Realtime Worlds went into administration.
The big difference between then and now is that the game has shunned the subscription model implemented by EA the first time round in favour of a free-to-play design.
The game was released on Steam on December 7th.
