Publisher Kalypso Media is still pushing its simulation titles hard with the announcement of Omerta – City of Gangsters Gold Edition. It’s available right now for PC through digital distribution.
This Gold Edition packs together all previously released downloadable content (DLC) for the mafia game set in 1920s Atlantic City. Several of those DLC items are smaller additions, but The Japanese Incentive is a sizable amount of content.
Released in December of 2013, The Japanese Incentive has an entirely different campaign than that of the main game. Moreover, things like katanas, machine guns and flamethrowers make fights more gruesome than even.
Omerta – City of Gangsters plays in two different settings. In the overworld, players manage a city by taking over buildings, recruiting henchmen to collect funds and so on.
This management design is accompanied by a separate mode for turn-based combat. Whenever rivaling gangs and other baddies lurk in areas that they shouldn’t, the game turns to deadly force.
During combat, it’s possible to use cover and field of view to an advantage. It has a similar feel of old Jagged Alliance strategy titles.
Despite this dual dynamic, Omerta – City of Gangsters originally didn’t resonate well with its community. Management felt repetitive and futile, as no map would ever be revisited.
Since its release, the game has received a massive overhaul to correspond with fan and critic feedback.
Omerta – City of Gangsters Gold Edition is currently listed on Steam for €29.99, which is €16.46 cheaper than buying everything separately. This version is currently only available digitally.
There’s no sign of Omerta – City of Gangsters Gold Edition for its Xbox 360 version.
