This Is the Police 2 is a story based management strategy coming to Mac and Windows, but not Linux. We just received some disappointing news that there is no Linux version coming. Since the previous This Is the Police did get native support. We were hoping for further confirmation for the sequel.
“Unfortunately, there is no Linux version of the game planned as for now.”
So “for now” seems to be the catch here. Since the games still in active development with no planned release date yet. All we can confirm is some time in 2018. This comes directly from THQ Nordic and Weappy Studio. Yet we hope that Linux support will get a mention the closer we get to launch.
Welcome to Sharpwood, a remote border town in the north. It’s a rough, cold place, where inhabitants know their neighbours by name and faithfully keep to their traditions, no matter how barbaric those traditions might be. Smugglers, gangs and screaming populists have made this town their home. Despair grows like a cancer, hand in hand with violence.
This Is the Police 2 ‘Cold-Blooded Attitude’ Trailer:
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 has to maintain order and peace even though her subordinates are uncouth men who aren’t used to receiving 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.
Just like the first game, This Is the Police 2 is a mixture of adventure and management genres, and this time it enjoys further unexpected mechanics that will strengthen both the strategic and tactical parts of the game. It won’t be enough just managing the equipment of your policemen and keeping in mind their individual skills. Every challenge requires the player’s direct participation, and the outcomes will depend on every decision you make. Now 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.
