If you're excited about Realtime Worlds' ambitious multiplayer 'cops and robbers' title APB then you now have the opportunity to sign up to the Beta Program.

Realtime Worlds explains: "We’ll be selecting beta testers who complete the application process and meet our criteria. Selected testers will receive an invitation by email along with details of how to download the game and take part. If you don’t hear back from us in the next few months, don’t despair, we’ll be selecting more people right through to launch and we will need bigger numbers of testers as time goes on. Even if you’re not selected for the start of the program you may get an invitation later."

You'll find the Beta Program sign up form over on APB.com.

A FAQ on the same website has also confirmed that when the game launches in spring 2010 players will not be required to pay a monthly subscription - good news for gamers not keen on parting with a monthly fee.

Well they want to know for the same reason employers do.

They want to see how ethnically diverse there company *or game* is simple

I agree. Some of the first questions in the beta signup are well out of place for the criteria they actually need. However, I still signed up. You don't really have to put in your correct details as you're under no obligation to do so.

I was all excited until I saw the BETA application form.

Why do they want to know my 'ethnicity'? Why do they want my job details and pay band?

They're either really nosey or want to sell/pass on my details to a third party. Sod off Realtime Worlds!
