This Is the Police 2 gets early parole and is Now Available!
In a surprise move publisher THQ Nordic has released their upcoming Strategy sequel This Is the Police 2 a few days early from its original August 2nd release date. And now players can jump into the sequel today. According to THQ, when the original title launched on Steam they forgot to push the "GO LIVE" button and now it seems that they are making up for it by giving players access to the sequel 2 days early. Become the Sheriff of Sharpwood today and keep the town safe from crime!
Jump into a surprising mix of gameplay styles. Just like its predecessor, This Is the Police 2 draws on different genres and mechanics, merging them into a one-of-a-kind story driven experience – this time adding even more unexpected twists. Is it an adventure game? A strategy? A simulation? A management game? A visual novel? A puzzle? It’s all of these, and more!
Participate in a harsh story where no one is completely innocent. The people of Sharpwood are ignorant and cruel. Poverty and hunger are met with increased outbursts of domestic crime, all while the inaction of the authorities has the townspeople relying on “forest spirits” and archaic religious cults. Constant problems with the food supply have delivered the town into the hands of local smugglers, many of whom are former military. Accuse the innocent, make deals with criminals, torture the ones who won’t go along willingly – you can do whatever it takes to make things go your way.
Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer. Your subordinates aren’t just some resource; they are living people with their own strengths, weaknesses, fears and prejudices – and you'll have to reckon with all these things in order to survive. The same goes for the rest of townspeople: in Sharpwood, everything’s built on personal relationships, and you never know when being friends with the local butcher or business associates with the morgue owner might save your life.
This Is the Police 2 is out now for PC, Mac and Linux.
