It's always nice to highlight a really promising indie project, and we like to think that The Precinct fits the bill. We actually wrote about this one a whole 12 months ago, but now it has a PS5 release date. The top-down police sim arrives on the 15th August.

Basically, you play as a cop in a city that's made up of procedurally generated crime. One minute you're handing out parking tickets, the next you're gunning down armed bank robbers or tail-ending maniacs off the freeway.

You can catch some gameplay in the above launch date trailer, but we think this overview video from developer Fallen Tree Games provides a better idea of what the title's all about:
