Empire Of Sin - What We Know So Far

Empire of Sin, a new strategy game from Romero Games and Paradox Interactive, transports you to Prohibition-era Chicago. Embroiled in the city's seedy underbelly, you'll build your crime empire in style amidst the glitz and glamour of the roaring 20s. A character-driven, noir-inspired game, you'll do what it takes to stay on top, assembling a team of loyal mobsters to help you expand your reach and take over competing territories. The better your relationship with your posse, the stronger they become as you bring Chicago to its knees. Charm, bribe, or threaten your way to multiple victory scenarios.
