Flashing Lights will introduce players to police, fire, and emergency medical services. Each of them come with their own missions and are available to play in single-player or multiplayer allowing players to work together.
In less than 24 hours, the title got a new update that didn’t just bring bug fixes, but also a variety of content. Here’s what has been added:

- 2 new rescue missions for the fire department (single player only)
- 5 new missions for the EMS department
- The option to make private multiplayer lobbies via a password to share with friends
- Spanish translation

An example of how the game plays and the features can be found in this video that came out at the end of May 2018. It gives a look at how all three departments work and shows a little tease of the multiplayer mode in action as a group of players take down an AI controlled car.
As police, the player can assign parking tickets to vehicles and even check the speed of cars with a speed gun. The fire department will have to put out fires, and the emergency medical services will respond to vehicle incidents.
Flashing Lights has a roadmap preview in place to give players an insight into what’s coming post-launch. More callouts for all departments, improvements to multiplayer, character customization, varied speed limits, and a playable tow truck are what is currently previewed.
