If you’ve been following any of our coverage on This is the Police 2, you’d know we’re quite excited for Weappy’s upcoming sequel. And following today’s newest This is the Police 2 trailer, we’re even more so.
If you haven’t been keeping up, the sequel is similar to the first outing but sports even more in-depth features than the initial game. Instead of simply instructing your officers to do this and that, you’re now directly involved in each encounter via a tactical combat scene. Weappy says that “your subordinates aren’t just a 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.”
Today’s This is the Police 2 trailer, entitled Welcome to Sharpwood, introduces us to the city we’ll be exploring when the game launches next month. Weappy says surmises Sharpwood as follows:
More From Nerd Much?:
“Sharpwood is a cold place, a desolate place. Corruption spreads, violence escalates. Local cults gain more power, as do criminal gangs. And the Police? Well, everybody has to make a living, right? So “To serve and protect” – but whom? And who can you trust, if some criminals also wear a badge? Welcome to Sharpwood.”
Our newest This is the Police 2 trailer does an excellent job conveying all of the shadowy details lurking under Sharpwood’s snow covered exterior. Weappy’s newest cinematic for the game is subdued and subtle, yet does a fantastic job of illustrating (with the game’s unique art style) just how screwed up the city of Sharpwood is.
Wild wolves roam in Sharpwood’s forests. Satanic cults worship in secret and drug dealers cook in concealed cabins. The police are far from trustworthy and the town’s adolescence are already in moral jeopardy. And the criminals factions that lurk within the shadows won’t hesitate to attempt murder on the law attempting to take them down.
This is the Police 2 is just a week away for PC, Mac and Linux players with a release date of August 2nd. The game is also headed to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch sometime in fall of 2018.
