Romero Games Announces Empire of Sin

Paradox Interactive and Romero Games announce Empire of Sin, a strategy game set in prohibition-era Chicago that's coming to Windows, macOS, and consoles in spring 2020. The Empire of Sin website is already online, offering screenshots and this cinematic announcement trailer. John Romero wants to make you his pitch:
Paradox Interactive and Romero Games have today announced Empire of Sin, a character-driven strategy game set in 1920s Chicago. 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. Empire of Sin will be coming to PC, Mac, Switch, Xbox and PlayStation consoles in Spring 2020.

Empire of Sin, the strategy game from Romero Games and Paradox Interactive, puts you at the heart of the ruthless criminal underworld of 1920s Prohibition-era Chicago. 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 the roaring 20s, letting them thrive in the gritty underbelly of organized crime.

Features:

  • Build A Crime Empire: Raise your criminal empire from the ground up in several seedy enterprises (be it speakeasies, union skimming, 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. 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.

I won't touch another Paradox game. Tired of getting a game piecemeal with their constant expensive DLC attachments. It is almost like you have to subscribe to the game. Yep many other games have DLC, but Paradox gives you tiny increments and expects full price remuneration for it. As much as I love strategy games, they won't be getting a dime from me.

Another crap game announcement from Romero ?

I was actually waiting to hear about that "Blackroom" shooter he & Carmack kickstarted awhile back.... It sounded pretty cool.

I know they stopped production on it because supposedly they got private funding... so what's up !?

Cool beans. An updated Omerta, eh? I'm down. Didn't expect something like this from Johnny R.

I was just showing a friend "Gangsters (1998)" the other day.

But I forgot that I had also played Omerta (2013) as well and that was basically Gangsters.

So this is like the third game in a "series" where none of the publishers or developers have been the same

Guys, this thing unearthed a buried memory:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_King_of_Chicago

I think I'll have to pass on Romero...don't want to be his _itch...or hear his "pitch"...(liked that, RedEye9!) Daikatana's other advertising pitch was memorable as well--"Suck it down!" Ugh!...;) I wonder if it will rain frogs in Chicago, too?
It is well known universally that I do not make mistakes--so, if you should happen across an error in that which I have written, please be assured that *I* did not write it!...:)

A mask is not a political statement.
It's an IQ test.
It's a compassion test.
It's a decency test.
