Brenda Romero's mobster-era crime game has set a date. Empire of Sin's crime wave kicks off on Dec. 1, 2020.
Following today's Nintendo Partner Showcase, where Romero Games premiered a new look at gameplay, the studio announced that Empire of Sin will launch before the end of the year. Empire of Sin arrives Dec. 1 for PC, Mac, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.
Part management sim, part XCOM-like tactics game, Empire of Sin looks to blend a lot of ideas and genres together to craft one massive criminal enterprise. Despite the mix of social systems, management, and combat, it seems like it all blends well.
Playing through the rise of your very own criminal empire in Prohibition-era Chicago left a lasting impression on our own Mike Williams at E3 2019. With a Nintendo Switch version locked in too, it seems like it could be a solid way to take booze-smuggling on the go.
There are a few pre-order perks for those who want to lock it in early, like an exclusive mission and gangster. Whether you need it or not, Empire of Sin will be making an offer you can't refuse on Dec. 1, 2020 for PC, Mac, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
