There will be blood. And it will be good.
Omerta: City of Gangsters, the upcoming tactical turn-based strategy from Kalyspo Media, just got a whole more rougher as the publisher has released a new “Combat” video showcasing the nature of violence you can perpetrate in the game as you battle up the criminal hierarchy to make a name for yourself as the fresh-faced immigrant in town.
Some of the key features of the combat include destructible environments, dynamic fog of war, weapons with various area effects, combat status ailments like panic, bleeding, crippled, etc., some intelligent AI that will utilize all of the above to take you down (and destroy your cover while they’re at it, because hey, screw you copper/robber).
Developed by Haemimont Games, Omerta: City of Gangsters is set in Prohibition-era Atlantic City. And if Boardwalk Empire has taught us anything about the era, it’s everything goes. You’l lbe pulling off elaborate heists, drive-bys, gang violence and much more when the game releases for Xbox 360 and PC in 2013.
