Empire of Sin [PS4/XB1/PC/Mac/Switch], a 1920s gangster strategy game! - Spring 2020


Recommended Posts


Another one I forgot from the E3 Direct that actually looked really promising. This is being described as a gangster driven 1920s prohibition era spin on X-com by some of the press, but it looks to expand well beyond that into familiar strategy game takeover territory!


This is coming from John Romero's dev company in collaboration with Paradox.





"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. As a player, you’ll be smack-dab in the glitz and glamor of the roaring 20s, giving you a chance to thrive in the gritty underbelly of organized crime."



The official site notes you'll have to build up a criminal empire as one of 14 crime bosses vying for control of the city. You'll pick a racket, like speakeasies or casinos, train up a team of mobsters, and take over enemy territory "in brutal turn-based combat." Apparently there's some character elements here as well: "Recruit your goons strategically to build a strong chemistry within your crew to maximize combat damage and help secure your hold on the city."
