Fans of Fargo might be excited to hear that THQ Nordic has announced This is the Police 2, a follow up to 2016’s noir-tinged cop management sim.
Why is this exciting news for Fargo fans? Well, This is the Police 2 switches the action from the teeming metropolis of Freeburg to the cold and remote border town of Sharpwood.
You’ll take on the role of new sheriff in town, Lilly Reed, who must manage her limited pool of officers of the law and respond to various crimes around town. This is the Police 2 mixes multiple genres, though, flittering between sim game, adventure game, visual novel, puzzle game and more.
The sequel also expands many ideas seen in the original by further developing your subordinates with their own strengths and weaknesses, finding other ways to tempt you into corruption and refining its storytelling ambitions.
The first game was an impressive and compelling story-led game which unfortunately dragged on a little longer than it felt it needed to. Hopefully, the second game will keep the same level of tension throughout or cut out some of the unnecessary filler.
This is the Police 2 will be available for PC and consoles later in 2018.
