Police Warfare - What's been going on
The Police Warfare Kickstarter has come and [prematurely] gone, but in their words, this is "by no means the end of Police Warfare". This is a game concept that I’m quite excited about. The premise is awesomely militaristic combat between criminals and cops and is based on one of my favourite movies of all time: Heat. In my opinion, this is probably one of the greatest firefights in movie history: Click here to watch the clip from Heat. You can thank me later.
Now imagine a game version of what you just saw! Police Warfare is an urban combat oriented, class based FPS in the vein of Battlefield 3 with heavily armed criminals (think the movie Heat) versus the Los Angeles SWAT team.
I’ll let the launch video speak for itself:
The game's developers at Elastic Games have taken down the Kickstarter only a short time after it went up, but they are assuring everyone that the project is not dead and that it's going to see the light of day somehow.
That's good news, because it's a shame to see a unique concept such as this die a premature death. Let the conspiracy theories fly.
