Two new announcements today about Haemimont and Kalypso’s Prohibition-era strategy title Omerta. First up, a new single-player demo has launched on Live Marketplace for the 360. The demo includes two levels, which give players the chance to try some of the game’s turn-based combat as well as the opportunity to plan a heist. A new update has also been announced for both the 360 and PC versions.
It’s time to run some liquor and shoot up some joints, Omerta – City of Gangsters is now available in stores for 360 and PC. Opportunity awaits in Prohibition-era Atlantic City, and as a newly arrived immigrant wanting the finer things in life, players will stake their claim to everything their new home has to offer. Starting off as a small-time hoodlum, players must work their way up the criminal underworld by taking on assignments to earn cash, gain influence, and push out rivals.
If Boardwalk Empire has you itching to be a gangster in Prohibition-era Atlantic City, then Kalypso might have just the thing for you. The publisher has announced that Haemimont Games’ latest strategy title, Omerta – City of Gangsters, has gone gold and will launch for 360 and PC on February 12. Players will start off as a smalltime crook, but through recruiting a gang of their own, raiding their rivals’ territories, robbing banks, and battling it out in turn-based combat, they will climb the ranks and become a mob boss with their own syndicate.
El Presidente is nothing if not thrifty. In the latest downloadable pack to launch for Tropico 4, Megalopolis, virtual benevolent dictators are tasked with building the largest city possible with the cheapest materials at hand. Available for PC, and soon for 360, the $4.99 drop, detailed below, includes a new campaign, new avatar clothing, a new mission, and a new trait. The goal: build the most glorious second-rate city the world has ever known.
Kalypso’s upcoming crime-empire-building sim Omerta – City of Gangsters has been announced for the 360. The console release will join a previously announced PC version when it launches this autumn. Developed by Haemimont Games, creators of Tropico, Omerta will send players back in time to the 1920s and put them in the shoes of an ambitious, newly arrived immigrant who gets his start as a small-time crook in Atlantic City.
El Presidente’s island fiefdom is moving into a new era with the release of Tropico 4: Modern Times for PC. The $29.99 expansion includes a new 12-scenario campaign, 10 new edicts, 30 new buildings, and upgrades for older buildings.
El Presidente has looked out on his island fiefdom and decided that it’s missing the kind of relaxing scenery only available through the heavy use of concrete. Nothing says tropical paradise like soul-crushing gray. And today he’ll get the chance to make his vision come to life with the Quick Dry Cement DLC pack for Tropico 4. The 400 MS Point/$4.99 release, available for 360 and PC, adds a new Cement Factory building, which speeds up construction across the island; the Constructor character trait; a mission theme involving building an island-wide city; and numerous decorations, including a small park, flower bed, and constructor statue.
Kalypso has released some new shots from the upcoming Tropico 4 expansion, Modern Times. Set to launch in March for the 360 and PC for 1200 MS Points/$19.99, Modern Times leapfrogs the island nation to the modern today, where 30 new buildings, 10 new edicts, 12 new scenario missions, new upgrades, and this newfangled thing called the Internet await El Presidente’s attention. Aside from space stations, skyscrapers, biofarms, and festivals of love, the present also brings with it a new threat to the regime.
