Featuring turn-based combat that will be familiar to anyone that has fired up an XCOM game, Empire of Sin also presents an in-depth bit of strategy/sim action as you choose your faction and look to build an empire out of speakeasies and brothels and other illegal bits of business.
“Empire of Sin is labour of love, a game I’ve wanted to make for 20 years," said Brenda Romero, game director, Romero Games. “If games are about wish fulfillment, anyone who’s ever wished to run a criminal empire is in for a treat. We designed the game to put you right there in the thick of the action, at the very beginning of Prohibition. It goes without saying, but I’ll say it — the Empire of Sin team can’t wait to get this game into players’ hands.”
Here's the launch trailer.
This character-driven, noir-inspired game puts players smack dab in the glitz and glamour of the roaring 20s, all while working behind the scenes in the gritty underbelly of organised crime. It’s up to you to hustle, charm and intimidate your way to the top of the pile and do whatever it takes to stay there. Empire of Sin’s gameplay is structured around three pillars:
Roleplay Empire Management: Build your Empire of Sin and run Chicago’s underworld economy with business savvy, brutality or city-wide notoriety. Strategically manage your establishments such as speakeasies, supply chains, casinos and more.
Turn-Based Combat: Assemble a killer gang from Empire of Sin’s more than fifty recruitable gangsters and slug it out in turn-based combat to defend and expand your territory – or send a message to opposing gangs.
Empire of Sin is available now for $59.95 AUD on PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
