Empire of Sin - Upcoming strategy game from Paradox Interactive

Post by jztemple2 » Mon Aug 19, 2019 1:18 pm

Empire of Sin- an exciting character-driven strategy game set in 1920s Chicago will be coming to PC, Mac, Switch, Xbox and PlayStation consoles in Spring 2020. Find out more: https://www.empireofsingame.com

In Empire of Sin, players 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 randomly generated starting conditions, players will have to adapt to survive and do whatever it takes to outsmart, out-gun and outlast their opponents.
Has kind of an XCOM look to the tactical combat, but what doesn't these days? Still, looks like an interesting take on the genre and who doesn't like a good gangster game?

It's a good premise for a game, but this is a bit out of Paradox's usual wheelhouse and I can think of a number of failed attempts of similar style games before. Definitely keep my eyes on this though. It takes them a few tries sometimes, but Paradox usually gets it right eventually.

I wish you didn't have to do the battles. Just control the gang and send them out on missions. only do combat if you want to. Turned based combat bores me these days when in the 90s it was my favorite part.
