Interpret the law as you see fit in This Is the Police 2, sequel to the acclaimed noir drama This Is the Police! Run the sheriff’s department, manage your cops, investigate, interrogate, incarcerate, make tough decisions – and try to keep out of prison yourself! – in this story-driven mixture of adventure and strategy, set in a cold border town riven with violence.
Welcome to Sharpwood, where people know their neighbors by name and faithfully keep to their traditions, no matter how barbaric those traditions might be. Smugglers, gangs, and screaming populists call this town their home. Despair grows like a cancer, hand in hand with violence. It’s a hell of a job for the new sheriff, Lilly Reed (voiced by Sarah Hamilton, of the celebrated adventure saga The Longest Journey). She’s struggling to maintain order and peace, while her subordinates are uncouth men who aren’t used to taking commands from a young woman. But everything changes when a mysterious stranger calling himself Warren Nash appears in Sharpwood. And no one knows what he’ll bring to the town: salvation or perdition.
By the way, This Is the Police 2 will be released later this year on PC/macOS, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One.
Finally, you can play This Is the Police in a brand-new sandbox mode: everyone who has finished the story can jump right into an endless madness. Infinite number of days, leaderboard, new randomly-generated investigations, dynamic difficulty, 200+ new crimes, and more! Survive as long as you can, and soon we’re going to find out the best police chief on the planet (or the most corrupt one).
And yes, you can rename your cops from the initial set. But try to be reasonable. Fartman Jr. isn’t a name.
Also, we know that there’s a lot of Japanese gamers interested in This Is the Police, so we are happy to announce that they can enjoy the game in their native language starting, well, right now. Have fun!
Obviously a lot of people prefer to play games in their native language, and we know that This Is the Police has a lot of fans (or wannabe-fans!) far beyond English-speaking, German-speaking and Russian-speaking countries. So we’re working on more languages, and today we’re happy to release Portuguese-Brazil and French versions! Chinese and Spanish are coming next, so stay tuned for more news!
But wait, there is more. Since the game was released in August, and only now, in October, we’re starting to add more languages (shame on us), we want to give you guys something special. So as a thank you for your incredible patience and amazing support we’ve prepared an exclusive criminal gang (which means +3 investigations) for each additional language. People playing Portuguese-Brazil version will be able to catch a gang named ‘Circo Mambembe’, and for our French-speaking players there is ’Uterus Magna’ gang (no, really, that’s how they call themselves, there is nothing we can do about it). But if you’re playing TITP in English, German or Russian, it doesn’t mean that you aren’t getting your own sweet piece of free new content: ‘Wheels of Empire’ gang is waiting for you!
Oh, and no, we didn’t forget about the sandbox mode: it’s coming very soon and, of course, going to be a free update for everyone.
Thanks again, have a nice play!
This Is the Police is finally available in all digital stores. You can go and grab your fresh copy right now! Cheers!
Steam, GOG, Humble Store.
Hello, everyone. With heavy hearts, we have to tell you about the necessity to switch the launch date of This Is the Police from July 28th to August 2nd. We know it’s an extremely dick move to break to, especially on the release date, but of course, we had a reason to do so.
Our partner EuroVideo published the update explaining everything.
Of course, we will use these additional few days for polishing. Our team really sorry that it all happened, but, please try to show understanding.
This Is the Police will be available on 2nd of August at 16:00 (UTC). Price will be £11.99, €14.99 and $14.99 (with 10% discount during the first week).
