The sixth content update for Police Simulator: Patrol Officers is now close to entering its beta phase: From May 31, 2022, you will have new options for traffic control. The aptly named Traffic Management update will be officially released on June 28th, 2022.
Controlling traffic – for example to secure the scene of an accident – is part of everyday life for the patrol officers in the busy streets of the fictional US East Coast metropolis of Brighton. With the Traffic Management update, you can now ensure the safety of citizens even better. The update enables you to block off entire streets or individual lanes with the help of traffic cones and barriers. Bystanders, passers-by and witnesses may be instructed to wait at a location designated to not use one of the sidewalks or to turn around, and choose an alternate route to their destination.
In addition to the new features, the Traffic Management update offers a number of bug fixes and improvements such as improved NPV reaction to sirens and reaction near intersections, NPV lane switching behavior or NPC behavior near patrol vehicles, as well as the modding option to customize siren sounds, lightbar light patterns, and other lighting of your police vehicles.
If you would like to test the Traffic Management update in its beta phase, you will have the opportunity to do so from May 31, 2022 on a beta branch set up specifically for this purpose on Steam™. As with previous updates we are looking forward to lots of constructive feedback on our official communication channels such as Steam™, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Discord or the Roadmap.
