This Is the Police 2 the sequel to the original release is coming to Linux, this is confirmed. Which also includes Mac and Windows. We now have formal confirmation for a native launch.
So we reached out to THQ Nordic for the details. Since the debut title released with Linux support. Why would the sequel be any different?
Linux release confirmed:
“Actually, this is a mistake. We will have Linux-Support for This Is the Police 2.”
So this is simple yet to the point. Weappy Studio will release a Linux release along with other platforms. Which kind of a relief to be honest. When details start showing up regarding the sequel, it was just Mac and Windows. But alas, this is not the case, since we have support confirmed again.
Since we are back in the big city, Police Chief Jack Boyd, the protagonist of This Is the Police. Previously too deeply mired in bureaucracy to pay much attention to field tactics. But in Sharpwood is a cold frontier town. Wwhere a young woman named Lilly Reed has recently become sheriff. So you will need to take a new approach. Taking your cops under direct control during particularly difficult and dangerous missions.

In such situations, the game will switch to a new turn-based combat mode system. While you gather a team of your finest police officers. Or use your drunk and stupid bums, sinceyou don’t always have the luxury of being choosy. Take up advantageous positions. But again don’t forget: the police are supposed to arrest suspects, not kill them.
You’ll have to carefully study the terrain while constantly adapting your plans. Stealthily approach your suspects and use non-lethal weapons and equipment. Unless, of course, you bartered them for a dozen cans of tuna. So yes, sometimes gunfights are almost impossible to avoid. But be careful: This Is the Police 2 doesn’t have hit points. A single bullet can cost a cop their life.
Just like the first game, This Is the Police 2 is a mixture of adventure and management genres. And this time it enjoys further mechanics. These will strengthen both the strategic and tactical parts of the game. It won’t be enough just managing the equipment of your policemen. Also keep their individual skills in mind.
Every challenge requires the player’s direct participation on a tactical combat scene. The outcomes will depend on every decisions you make. Now your subordinates aren’t just some resource. They are also living people with their own strengths and weaknesses. As well as fears and prejudices. Reckon with all these things in order to survive.
