The Precinct is coming to Xbox, PlayStation and PC

There have been enough police sims to release over the years for us to know that there is a niche audience that adores them. But what happens if you chuck in some sandbox action for good measure? You get The Precinct. 

Today a brand new trailer has been unveiled for The Precinct; an upcoming police sim sandbox that threatens to flip the genre on its head. It’s from the Kwalee and Fallen Tree Games teams, with launch promised for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC later in 2024. 

Take to The Precinct

In The Precinct you’re take on the role of Officer Nick Cordell Jr., a rookie cop out on the beat, looking to make a change to the world. It’s here where you’ll take in thrilling car chases, try to work out what is going on behind procedurally generated crimes, and enjoy some old-school 1980s noir. Oh, and you’ll also be trying to get to the bottom of your father’s murder, fallen in the line of duty. 

It plays out in the world of Averno City; a bustling world that promises to come with some meticulous attention to detail. Some of that is shown off in the latest trailer – A Day in Averno City. Give it a watch as Lewis Boadle, the Art Director at Fallen Tree Games talks us through things…

Ade Lovell Lawton, Head of Marketing at Kwalee Gaming, shared his enthusiasm for “The Precinct,” stating, “Fallen Tree Games poured their hearts and souls into creating an experience that captures the essence of both police simulation and sandbox spectacle. ‘A Day in Averno City’ offers just a glimpse of the rich tapestry of gameplay awaiting players, and we can’t wait for them to dive in and experience it for themselves.”

Key features

  • Take to the Streets  – A love letter to classic cop movies, The Precinct combines police sim detail with action sandbox spectacle. Patrol the streets and respond to callouts to fight criminals petty and powerful. Choose your own tactics in thrilling chases and shootouts. Feel the shifting power struggles of Averno’s gangs in a living city full of procedurally generated crimes, from parking infractions to bank heists, street racing to drug deals. 
  • Hot Pursuit – Speed through the city in intense car and helicopter chases and pursue your mark through twisting alleyways before bringing them to justice. There’s no need to be a lone wolf: You’ve got Averno’s Finest backing you up, with an in-depth support system that allows you to call in squad cars, roadblocks, spike strips, and more. 
  • A Sleepless City – Explore the ever-shifting criminal underbelly of Averno City. Deal with yuppies, bums, street vendors and furious taxi drivers from the Projects to the Financial District. Chase perps through neon-lit alleys, rain-soaked streets, and grand, decaying parklands, all subject to a day/night cycle and dynamic weather. This is the 1980s East Coast in all its neon-noir glory. 

Coming soon!

What do you think? Will you be taking to the streets of Averno later this year as The Precinct releases on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC? Let us know in the comments. We’re hoping this one nails things more than Police Simulator: Patrol Officers did.

You can get wishlisting on Steam or the Epic Games Store if you like.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
