Nintendo Reveals Mafia-Themed Empire of Sin; Coming Spring 2020

The Nintendo E3 2019’s briefing featured almost everything the fans expected, but some of the new announcements caught us off-guard, including the new mafia-themed Empire of Sin. The game is developed by Paradox Interactive, in collaboration with Romero Games.

The reveal trailer showcased isometric gameplay with tremendous visuals and in different locations. The studio describes Empire of Sin as a ” character-driven, noir-inspired game” where players build their own crime empire in the 1920s Chicago. Players have the freedom to reach the top of the criminal world as they see fit, either by taking out everyone in the way or purely by building a network of growing businesses.

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. This character-driven, noir-inspired game puts players smack dab in the glitz and glamor of roaring 20s all while working behind the scenes in the gritty underbelly of organized crime.
BUILD A CRIME EMPIRE:
Raise your criminal empire from the ground up by selecting your racket of choice (be it speakeasies, union protection, or casinos) and building 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.
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 a strong chemistry within your crew to maximize combat damage and help secure your hold on the city.
EXPLORE A LIVING, BREATHING CITY:
Explore the streets of vibrant 1920s Chicago and interact with a full cast of living, breathing characters each with lives of their own that inform how they react to what you do (or don’t do). Schmooze, coerce, seduce, threaten, or kill them to get your way.
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.
PURSUE MULTIPLE VICTORY STRATEGIES:
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 comes to PS4, Xbox One, and PC later in Spring 2020. Check out the announcement trailer below.
