    The Mafia’s take control in Empire of Sin, a character-driven strategy game coming to consoles and PC

    Paradox Interactive and Romero Games have released a trailer for their upcoming turn-based strategy game Empire of Sin, teasing upcoming gameplay and features the game will bring next year.



    1920’s organized crime, even more organized!

    Empire of Sin is seen taking the 1920’s Mafia feel to another level of detail and intricacy. With its raw and gritty organization that is the main theme of the game, players are free to build their own ruthless criminal empire as one of 14 distinct bosses vying to run the seedy underworld of organized crime in the city.

    With the beginning of the game being very random and unpredictable, players will have to adapt to survive and do whatever it takes to outsmart, out-gun and outlast their opponents. It’s up to the player to hustle, charm and intimidate their way to the top of the pile and do whatever it takes to stay there. With gameplay familiar to players who have played the XCOM series, they can make short work of enemies that come forth.

    Upcoming features of Empire of Sin:

    • Build A Crime Empire: Raise your criminal empire from the ground up by establishing rackets in your neighbourhood (be it speakeasies, breweries, brothels, union skimming, protection rackets, or casinos) and recruiting a team of loyal mobsters to make your mark on the streets. Once you make a name for yourself, expand your influence by taking over rival territory and adding more ventures to your repertoire.
    • Explore a Living, Breathing City: Take to the streets of vibrant 1920s Chicago and its distinct neighbourhoods, such as Little Italy or West Loop, with real historical landmarks and events. Interact with a full cast of over 60 living, breathing characters with backgrounds that inform how they react to what you or other characters do. Each recruitable character has traits and relationships that significantly affect gameplay and vice versa. Schmooze, coerce, seduce, threaten, or kill them to get your way.
    • Defend and Expand Territory: If it comes to blows, hypothetically of course, and your posse needs to send a message, face off in brutal turn-based combat. Recruit your goons strategically to build strong chemistry within your crew to maximize combat damage and help secure your hold on the city.
    • Wield Your Influence: Make and break alliances, bribe cops, and trade on the black market to gain an edge and expand the influence of your crime family. But always keep your enemies close and ensure you have a mole on the inside and eyes everywhere.
    • Dominate the Neighborhood: Whether you make it to the top with violence, business smarts, or city-wide notoriety, there are a number of ways to become King or Queen of Chicago. With various starting conditions and constantly changing crew dynamics, no two playthroughs will ever be the same.

    Empire of Sin will be making its way to the PC, Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4 and Xbox One in Spring 2020.
