Developed by Weappy Studios and published by THQ Nordic, ‘This is the Police 2′ finally has a console release date, falling on September 25, 2018.
This game plays out exactly how one would imagine if they were managing a Police Force, imagine after you received a phone call of an emergency:
- You can choose officers to respond to a distress call and make dialogue choices.
- You manage a number of limited Police officers, availability, personality and skill sets needed for that task (skills such as breaking the door, sniper or stealth based), and deploy them accordingly, depending on the call content.
- As you run into the crime scene, expect to see few assailants resisting arrest in a tactical turn-based gameplay like the ‘XCOM’ series, you can either attempt to cuff them or shoot them.
- Collect and plant evidence to allow prosecution, however, you would need to read the evidence properly as you can indict anyone in the crime scene.
Story and Setting
Your game starts in a town called Sharpwood, a glacier-ice cold place that motivates violence. With all the bad smugglers, gangs, addicts and no innocent one left in this town anymore, it is up to you and your ‘Police Force’ to set things right. One thing I noticed about this game is good voiced cut-scenes, in both tone and manner.
This game will be available for PlayStation 4, Switch and Xbox One.
