Fans of the Tropico strategy series should be interested to hear that Kalypso Media and Haemimont Games’ new game Omerta – City of Gangsters, which was previously only set for release on Windows PC, will also be releasing for Xbox 360. Omerta is a simulation game built around trying to make a crime empire in Atlantic City during the 1920’s, but will feature turn-based RPG elements during the gun fights that must inevitably happen in mob style games.
Omerta goes with the wide-eyed big-dreaming immigrant motif, though with 15 different characters to pick from, so there is sure to be someone interesting from any player standpoint. The game does seem to want to be pretty in-depth in its manner of combat and assorted crimes, from planning to enacting robberies and attacking rival gangs. So far they’ve announced quite a bit of different jobs that can be done, in and around 20 different districts of Atlantic City that are designed to be historically accurate.
Going from PC only, to also on Xbox 360 seems like a good move, so long as the controller scheme is set out pat to roll with it. Let’s see how they do with it.
