As you all know the open beta Police Simulator: Patrol Officers is now available, and if you want to join the open beta, this guide will explain how you can do it.
What is the Open Beta for?
With the Open Beta, you get access to new features and content in advance and can provide feedback to the developers before the new update officially releases.
The Open Beta will usually include all the stuff from the next big package update. To see, what the next package updates are, please check out the official Trello board.
