Confused on Steam Play and Proton? Be sure to check out our guide.

Even more news out of E3 as Police Stories, a top-down shooter with an emphasis on tactics and not just firing-first is going to release on September 19th with a new trailer. It's confirmed to be coming to Linux, it has Linux system requirements up and ready and the publishers website also very clearly lists it!

Their slightly different take on the top-down shooter genre has me quite excited, with you being able to fire-off warning shots and get criminals to surrender which looks pretty great. They say your actions are scored in real-time, so being overly aggressive might result in you not getting a good enough score for the next mission so they really do want you to be a little more careful.

Another reason I'm excited, is that it has local and online co-op so you can easily buddy-up with friends and decide who gets to be the good cop. That and each time you play a level, a lot of it will be different thanks to some random generation.

You will face various types of people from petty criminals to full-blown gangs, each with different weapons and behaviours and some will be more likely to give up, while others might require some truly careful tactics.

Follow and wishlist it on Steam so you're ready for the release.

Day-1 Linux release? Available on my birthday? Welcome to the top of my wishlist! I wonder how this compares to Door Kickers.
