Omerta: City of Gangsters Demo Out Now, Updates Coming Soon

Reinvigorating the business

Omerta: City of Gangsters is a complicated game with many interesting facets set in a prohibition era Atlantic City. While we loved the setting, the strategy, and what the game tries to do; the sum of the pieces seemed to miss being a cohesive whole. The biggest complaint our reviewer had was related to the game's combat system, they found it a bit frustrating and shallow at times. Luckily it seems developer Haemimont have heard fan feedback and is preparing a major patch for the game.

  • New maps for multiplayer and sandbox modes
  • Enemy gangs for Sandbox Mode – you’ll now have to fend of gangs that invade your turf and try to steal businesses out from under you
  • Customizable game settings and goals for sandbox games
  • Economy overview panel for current businesses with their efficiency, profit, ect.
  • Visual representation of individual business types on the strategic map via icons
  • Additional difficulty setting and "Iron Man" option (saving progress in strategic mode disabled)
  • Massive overhaul of cover mechanics in turn-based combat
  • Introduction of multiplayer chat and several other minor fixes/changes

Hopefully the multiplayer map updates will include some new co-op maps.  The update should be available in 4-8 weeks. 

While you're waiting, you can check out a demo for the game on Xbox 360. The demo showcases two levels from the game and gives you a glimpse into both the city strategy and turn based combat it provides.

Omerta: City of Gangsters is available now on Xbox 360 and PC. It features two player online co-op through a separate set of challenge missions.
