Back in December of 2018 we received Weappy Studio's indie simulation adventure game This Is the Police on Android, and today the sequel has popped up on the Play Store for pre-registration. An official announcement released today states that the game is coming to both Android and iOS sometime soon, and if you'd like to pre-register for the Android release, you can do so on the new Play Store listing.

The above trailer was released for the console and PC offerings of This Is the Police 2 earlier this year, and even though it doesn't specifically mention mobile support, it should provide a good idea of what to expect from the upcoming release. Clearly, this is a title meant for adults, thanks to its gritty noir-drama theme. Just like the first title, this is a narrative-based game, though this time around you'll play as a sheriff instead of a city cop, and just like in real life, many tough decisions come with the job. There are a few new mechanics that supplement the original title's dynamic gameplay with a few mini-games, and so reviews aren't as positive as they were for the first release.

So far we know that This Is the Police 2 will come to the Play Store as a premium release that does not contain any advertisements, and it will support tablets as well as Google Play Games Services out of the box. No release date has been provided, though it should land soon, and whenever it arrives, you'll be able to pick it up for $7.99 ($7 cheaper than the Steam version), just like the original title.

As always I'm excited to see more ports coming to Android, and while there are a lot of mixed reviews for This Is the Police 2, I'm surely not going to turn down a 20-hour simulation game just because there are a few mini-games in the mix. I can also understand why the narrative-based gameplay may turn a few people off, so make sure you go in with the correct expectations, as this is not a title you can easily play in short bursts. So if all of this sounds like something that may interest you, go ahead and hit that pre-registration button on the Play Store widget below.

Press Release

There's a new Sheriff on your mobile device!

This Is the Police 2 coming to iOS and Android soon.

Minsk, Belarus / Giebelstadt, Germany, August 8th, 2019: Sharpwood, a remote border town somewhere in the north. It's a rough, cold place, where everyone knows their neighbor by name and faithfully keeps to the traditions, no matter how barbaric. Smugglers, gangs and screaming populists have made this town their home. Despair grows like a cancer, hand in hand with violence and now it's upon you to change things for the better ... or worse.

It’s a hell of a job for the new sheriff, Lilly Reed. 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 - Warren Nash - appears in Sharpwood. And no one knows what he'll bring to the town: salvation or perdition?

This Is the Police 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed This Is the Police, and both games are top sellers on PC and consoles with millions of players around the world. This Is the Police 2 adds even more to the successful brand with a complex tactical mode, that will keep players challenged and entertained for hours.

About This Is the Police 2
This Is the Police 2 is a mixture of the adventure, strategy and management genres, in a grim, adult scenario. While trying to run the Sheriff's department against all odds, you'll dive into a deep crime story about corruption, hate, and violence. On the strategic layer, you'll manage the department, deploy officers on emergency calls, make meaningful decisions with a strong impact on the story and try to balance your scarce resources. The most important missions will be played out in a demanding tactical, turn-based mode, where you carefully position your cops and try to arrest the suspects. But beware, just one bullet can end an officer's life. So simply kicking in the front door might not be the best idea ...

This Is the Police 2 is now ready for pre-register on Android and pre-purchase on iOS devices. It's a premium title, priced at 7,99€ EURO / $7.99 US / £6.99 UK and has absolutely no microtransactions, no in-game ads, no loot boxes or other gambling. Just a great game.
