Police Simulator: Patrol Officers launched in Steam Early Access last year. The game has received some substantial updates since then, such as February’s Keys-to-the-City Update. That update added an Open Patrol mode and more criminals to catch. Now, this police simulator game is taking crimefighting a step further. The Holding Cells Update for Police Simulator: Patrol Officers officially launches today. Publisher Astragon Entertainment announced the update with a press release and a new trailer.
This update was previously tested in the game’s Open Beta, but now it is officially out of Beta testing.
The main feature of The Holding Cells Update is, of course, the holding cells. Previously, when players arrested an NPC, they needed to call a police transport to take prisoners to jail. According to today’s press release, this is no longer necessary:
“One of the most fervent wishes from within the player community of Police Simulator: Patrol Officers has been the ability to transport suspects by using the virtual officer’s own vehicles instead of calling an NPC police van for backup to a crime or accident scene. The The Holding Cells update now makes this wish come true: Players can take up to two handcuffed individuals to the precinct themselves, and transfer them to realistically recreated holding cells.”
What else is new in The Holding Cells Update for Police Simulator: Patrol Officers?
Today’s update for Police Simulator: Patrol Officers adds a new level of customization to the game. Players are now able to personalize their experience by changing the appearance of their vehicles and uniforms and changing their officer’s name. Today’s press release notes some additional minor changes:
“Other optimizations such as the ability to give accident reports to arrested persons and to fine suspects even after handcuffing them as well as extensive bug-fixing will also improve the gameplay experience.”
Police Simulator: Patrol Officers is available in Early Access on Steam and the Astragon Entertainment website.
