Prohibition-era mobster strategy game Empire of Sin had a bit of a mixed reception at launch last year, but Romero Games has continued to improve the experience with much-needed bug fixes, AI improvements and more since then. Now, though, the developer says it’s ready to turn its attention back to creating new content, and has announced a new premium expansion, Make It Count, alongside a new free update, known as The Precinct, for all players.
Make It Count will, among other things, introduce new boss Meyer Lansky – AKA the Mob’s Accountant, a prominent figure in the real-life American organised crime scene of the era. Lansky joins Empire of Sin’s existing 14-strong boss roster and is said to excel at economics and create combat synergy in-game.
On the subject of gangsters, Make It Count adds another five, all with the new Fixer profession – used to mediate conflict between gangsters and smooth over fractious relationships. Additionally, Fixers have new combat skills focussed on long-range fire power and area control, and can be used to unlock the new Loan Shark racket.
