Ever wanted to step into the role of a gritty police officer and be in charge of an actual police force? Before you answer, we forgot to mention that the tale being told alongside it is incredibly dark. Still good? Ok. This is the Police will be hitting consoles on March 22nd and puts you in the shoes of Chief Jack Boyd. Your goal is to make $500,000 in one hundred and eighty days or before Jack’s retirement. How you accomplish that goal is up to you. It could be through corrupt or perfectly legal means.
However, you can’t just slack on your normal citizen protector duties. There will be crimes to solve and bad guys to catch. Expect to respond to emergencies, managing officer health and happiness, deal with egregious City Hall, a corrupt mayor, and much more. Also, for kicks and giggles Jack is voiced by Jon St. John, the voice of Duke Nukem. The Steam trailer is above for your viewing pleasure.
This is the Police is developed by Weappy Studio and published by THQ Nordic. It was originally released on Steam last August to very positive reviews. Expect it to drop on the PlayStation 4 next month, on March 22nd. Let us know if you’ve played the title on Steam last year and what we can expect for the PS4 version.
