The Silence is Broken – New “Omerta – City of Gangsters” Teaser Trailer Available

Ridgewood, NJ, March 8, 2012 -Following hot on the heels of our announcement of the new strategy title, Omerta - City of Gangsters, Kalypso Media and Haemimont Games are pleased to release a new teaser trailer for the game. The teaser features elements of gameplay and early visuals from the game. Omerta, named after the code of silence held in high respect by members of organized crime gangs, will feature a mix of strategy, economics and turn-based combat when it is released in Q4 2012 for Windows PC.

Omerta – City of Gangstersis a simulation game with tactical turn-based combat. Taking the role of a fresh-from-the-boat immigrant, with dreams of the big life, the player will work his way up the criminal hierarchy of 1920’s Atlantic City. Starting with small jobs, his character recruits a gang and expands his empire by taking territory from other gangsters. Eventually he establishes his own crime syndicate and becomes the de facto ruler of Atlantic City.

The player strategically manages his business and his minions in a real-time format, slowly but steadily increasing his influence over the city. The player sends his henchmen out on missions ranging from assassinating an informant, to raiding a warehouse, springing a friend from prison, robbing a bank, or attacking a rival gang’s hideout. Nobody is above the law in Atlantic City, so it always helps to have a little cash handy to bribe a policeman or pay off a politician.

The turn-based combat in Omerta – City of Gangsters focuses on the tactical command of “The Boss” and his henchmen. Cover and stealth are essential parts of any shootout in the game. Finding the best vantage point to gun down an enemy, while taking cover from a hailstorm of bullets, can be just as satisfying as sneaking quietly behind a foe and taking him down.
