Police Shootout Announced

Police Shootout is a new law enforcement shooter coming to Steam with a TBA release date. Though the (somewhat comical) announcement trailer shows your character dodging slow-motion bullets like Neo in The Matrix, they are actually claiming some degree of realism: "Police Shootout gives the player an opportunity to jump straight into Police intervention. Based on many real stories, feel the thrill of real action. As a police enforcer player needs to help, protect and prevent crime in the field." Here's the description, which sounds like a machine translation:
Jump straight into Police intervention. Based on many real stories, feel the thrill of real action. As a police enforcer you need to help, protect and prevent crime in the field.

NEGOTIATE WITH CRIMINALS
Try to get out of a bad situation peacefully, or try to trick them and push the pressure. Dialogue with criminals is not easy but if you succeed, you will be closer to receiving a new badge!

AIM AND SHOOT
Use one of your weapons when you need to neutralize the criminal. You can choose aiming mode to be more precise.

HELP YOUR PARTNER
Call for an ambulance if your partner was shot! You can’t let him down!
Cover them or pass the gun or magazine to your partner.

CHECK DATA AND FILES
You can connect to the database and use the files to make sure you caught the right person or car!

COLLECT BADGES AND GET PROMOTED
Arrest the criminals, save the hostages and earn more badges! Maybe you will get a promotion and more interesting actions?

GET INTO THE SLOW MOTION
Jump to slow motion mode to avoid bullets in hard situations.

In fact, kudos for a unique setting and gameplay.

The game should play out more like SWAT 4 IMO, use hotkeys for peaceful words, aggressive words, threats of violence etc... Swat 4 only used 1 for compliance but if you had 4-5 of them the gameplay would be much more fluid than shown in the trailer with pop up menus pausing the game.

I feel like they really could have picked a name that wouldn't be mistaken for glorifying police shootouts.

That's what it obviously does, though. Hence "NEGOTIATE WITH CRIMINALS" instead of "engage and question suspects or suspicious persons."

What a dumb fucking game.

I didn't watch, had just taken Xero's word that this would function as a training. Also didn't read that he meant training not for cops, but bloodthirsty civilians.

Yeah, "negotiate with criminals" followed by an immediate aggression, and ranking up for shooting, not talking down.

Yeah, this is a Polish studio, I think. I'm sure the nuances of English are a bit lost on them in this press release.

Yeah, I'll never own or play this, but is it really all that different from CoD or BF?

In fact, kudos for a unique setting and gameplay. That said, I agree the optics on this are pretty bad given what's gone down with police shootings nationwide over the past several years.

Lastly, adding a VATS style system to this game just makes it too easy.

Remember when we had mildly interesting police games like Police Quest? And not this horseshit?

It looks like they tried to remake Police Quest Swat with a 3d engine.

My dad used to be a cop and liked to play Police Quest: SWAT because it reminded him of those days... It was mildly interesting, for sure, at least until I found out you actually had to study this phone book of a manual and pass an exam, then qualify through several rounds of target practice before it let you be a sniper. I just went back to playing Counter-Strike.

Lol, I saw this title and thought it was a late April Fool's joke.

Then I saw the gameplay video, and realized it's 2020, and real life is still more satirical than an article on The Onion.

I don't have a VR headset but honestly feel like this could make for great training in VR.

Situation where you walk in to a convenience store and out of the blue someone is taken hostage or the cashier has a gun pointed at him. What do you do when you are as though an innocent bystander but have the potential to act? Could be cool acting it out in VR.
