Strategy game Empire of Sin will be released in December

Empire of Sin, the strategy title from Romero Games, will be released on December 1.

Empire of Sin puts you at the heart of the criminal underworld of 1920s Prohibition-era Chicago.

In it you will "hustle, charm, and intimidate" your way to the top do whatever it takes to stay there.

The character-driven, noir-inspired game outs you in the middle of the roaring 20s, where you will work behind the scenes in the underbelly of organized crime.

If you are unfamiliar with the game, here's the synopsis and a list of features:

Slip into the shoes of one of the fourteen real and historically inspired mob bosses such as Al Capone, Stephanie St. Clair, or Goldie Garneau and assemble a rag-tag gang, build and manage your criminal empire, and defend your turf from rival gangs. It’s up to you to hustle, charm, and intimidate your way to the top and do whatever it takes to stay there.


  • Role-Play: Choose one of fourteen unique bosses based on fictional and real-world gangsters, then set out to build and manage your criminal empire in Chicago’s infamous Prohibition era.
  • Empire Management: Build your Empire of Sin and run Chicago’s underworld economy with business savvy, brutality or city-wide notoriety. Strategically manage your establishments such as speakeasies, supply chains, casinos and more.
  • Turn-Based Combat: Assemble your gang and slug it out in turn-based combat to defend and expand your territory – or send a message to opposing gangs.

If you pre-order, you will receive the Good Son Pack, which includes an exclusive in-game mission and recruitable gangster.

There is also a Deluxe Edition to be made available and it contains four recruitable gangsters, the Golden Weapon Set that comes with three exclusive weapon skins plus “Romero” gun sound effects, and execution animation for your boss character - the Curb Stomp Execution.

A Premium Edition will also be available and comes with the Deluxe Edition content, the mobster pack, two post-launch expansions, and the Al Capone’s Fur Coat costume.

Initially targeted for a spring release, before being pushed into fall, the game is coming to PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
