The Precinct is an open world action game with simulation elements. It's a neo-noir police thriller created by Fallen Tree Games. It was inspired by 1980s and 1990s movies.


United States East Coast, 1983. Nick Cordell Jr. - a recent graduate of the police academy - begins his service in the city of Averno plagued by corruption and injustice. He begins his fight against the petty criminals and dangerous gangs dwelling within the city while investigating the death of his father, killing in the line of duty.


The Precinct is an isometric game, set in an open, freely traversible city. Since we're a police rookie, most of our shifts begin with visiting the police station and attending the briefing. After that, we'll patrol the streets of Averno on foot, in a police car or a helicopter.

We'll need to intervene during fights, check parting meters and issue tickets. There are also car chases against criminals, during which we can call for reinforcements, more cars, roadblocks or spike strips. We'll also interfere in bank robberies and take part in raids. Crimes are procedrually generated, so the protagonist always has something to do.

Averno is divided into districts - we'll get to operate in both the slum areas and affluent streets where financiers work. The city constantly changes due to the day and night cycle, as well as the dynamic weather.
