Empire of Sin official artwork without logo

Empire of Sin is a strategy and management game about running a criminal empire in 1920s Chicago. As you would expect from that description alone, Empire of Sin will have you skirt prohibition rules in order to rake in cash by the truckload, spread your influence through both careful alliances and pure intimidation, as well as bribe cops and local politicians to keep the whole operation running smoothly.

When being nice and polite stops working, however, you'll also be able to take matters into your own hands and deal with any problematic elements directly. This will be done through a fairly standard turn-based combat system that will allow you to utilize all of the various henchmen you've recruited in order to take down opposing gangs or help 'convince' businesses that it would be a good idea to start paying for protection.

What all of this looks like in actual gameplay, that you can find out through the recently posted developer walkthrough. Have a gander, it's a rather short and informative one:

If all of this looks like it's right up your alley, you'll be happy to hear that Empire of Sin will be launching later today (December 1) for PC, Xbox, PlayStation and Switch. You can learn a little bit more about it, as well as keep track of its upcoming launch, over at the official website.
