this is the police 2 has an official august release date for linux mac windows

This Is the Police 2 adventure strategy is coming to Linux, Mac and Windows with the official release date of August 2nd 2018. So thanks to THQ Nordic and Weappy Studio, we are pleased to announce the release.

While the last This Is The Police 2 announcement confirmed Linux support. I was expecting a release sometime this Fall, since we did not have a release date.

So just like the first game, This Is the Police 2 is a mixture of adventure and management genres. This time it enjoys further mechanics that will strengthen both the strategic and tactical parts of the game. Since it won’t be enough just manage the equipment of your policemen and their individual skills.

Every challenge requires the player’s direct participation on a tactical combat scene. 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. So you’ll have to reckon with all these things in order to survive.

  • 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.

Official Release Date and Availability:

This Is the Police 2 is coming August 2nd to Linux, Mac and Windows. Which will also be available on Steam, GOG and Humble Store. No word on the official price yet.
