A first developer diary
for Urban Empire
, the upcoming simulation publisher Kalypso Media and
developer Reborn call a "city ruler." They also announce a January 17, 1017
release date and that pre-purchases of the game are now being accepted
, an advance
commitment that comes with a 15% discount and a Half Timbered Building Pack with
some rustic buildings. Here's word on the game's loose take on politics that
puts you in command of a 200 year mayoral dynasty:
In Urban Empire you
take control of a mayoral dynasty and lead your city and people through 200
years of history. Establish infrastructures, plan city districts, debate
political decisions at the town council, bribe or blackmail your opponents,
empower the democratic rights of your people or ignore them and reign supremely
by yourself – the decision is yours!
Beginning in the 1820s, establish your city through five different eras, each
with its own threats and opportunities. Master the challenges of the centuries,
face political struggles, experience world-changing events and pioneering
inventions, and create your own unique Urban Empire!
Urban Empire is a city ruler, pioneering a new breed of strategy game that
combines city builder features with political scheming and adds profound social
and historical events into the mix, creating a whole new gameplay experience
where players must employ strategic planning and political savvy to successfully
grow their cities in their role as Mayor.
