Kalypso Media's turn-based strategy game, Omerta: City of Gangsters is currently available at UK outlets and export e-tailers for the Xbox 360 and digitally available to everyone planning on playing the game via PC. The game puts players in a 1920s Atlanta City, Georgia as they aim to rise through the ranks of organized crime and become the leader of the city of gangsters.
Omerta is a throwback to old-school turn-based games where storytelling and micromanagement were key. Unlike other games where the micromanagement is based on microtransactions, Omerta relies on skill and strategy and a player's wits to level-up, equip and strategically take down foes using a variety of weapons, tactics and brute force. Imagine if a more story-oriented X-Com was redesigned for the gangster motif and you'll get an idea of what Omerta is like.
To commemorate the launch Kalpyso unleashed a brand new launch trailer for the game, which you can check out below.
Given that Haemimont Games, the makers of Tropico, designed the game it at least gives gamers some reassurance that the quality of the game's design should be pretty decent. The graphics are also done quite well to capture the mood and theme of the prohibition era, which should make the experience feel that much more authentic.
It's just too bad we don't have more gangster games or more turn-based games, but if Omerta: City of Gangsters finds success like the newest reboot of X-Com then perhaps we could see more games made in the same vein. For more information feel free to visit the Official Omerta Website.
