After spending some time with Neverwinter, I feel like I should play Path of Exile again just for amount of inventory space it offers.

The APB engine upgrade is more about fixing the game in terms of optimization. There was alot of code done custom when APB was made that are now part of the unreal engine, and the custom ones were terribly coded/optimized, even one of the original devs had mentioned after the studio shut down that the game ran terribly when you turn up the graphics on the dev spec machines and couldn't believe they were going to release it like that.

Either way, I would probably play APB again if they added some more depth to the gameplay, like some clan progression/competition or something and perhaps a new map or 2.

DRAGON BALL: THE BREAKERS Gameplay - A "Not Over 9000" First Look (B2P)

Well, the game tries to get over 9000, but pretty much falls short every time.
