There are two ways to learn how to become a successful 1920′s gangster: 1. Watch Boardwalk Empire or 2. You can watch the combat trailer for the upcoming multiplatform title, Omerta – City of Gangsters. I’ll take the option without Steve Buscemi. Take control of the Prohibition-era Atlantic City as you manage illicit businesses, go own raids and drive-by’s and bring the money of the town in your pockets.
Some of the key features of the tactical combat include:
Destructible environment: take down those crates the opposition thinks they can hide behind!
Dynamic fog of war forces you to be cautious as you explore the map.
Weapons with various area effects do a wide swath of damage, but beware, they don’t discriminate between friend or foe.
Combat status ailments – panic, bleeding, crippled, etc, all can slow down your friends and foes alike.
Cunning AI opponents not only make use of environments, but also destroy your cover.
