The lights are on
Kalypso Media USA is preparing for the February 12th release of Omerta: City of Gangsters for Xbox 360 and PC, and they've sent out a press release today confirming that the game has gone gold.
Set in 1920s Atlantic City, the new title from the Tropico 4 developer places gamers in the shoes of a mob boss during the days of Prohibition. The mobster sim promises to mix turn-based combat with "strategic city-conquest gameplay." From the sounds of it, the game may have two layers in a similar manner as last fall's XCOM: Enemy Unknown. We loved the format when we were killing aliens, so a mobster game that scratches that same itch may be interesting.
