Empire of Sin, the new turn-based strategy RPG set in the prohibition era from Romero Games and Paradox Interactive, is out now.

The game is available for purchase on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC for $40 USD / £35 / €50. You can check out the launch trailer below.

Empire of Sin is set in the 1920s, with a story that focuses on organized crime. Players must "hustle, charm, and intimidate" their way to the top.

The game features the iconic Chicago mob boss Al Capone, along with fictional ones like Goldie Garneau. There are more than 50 other gangsters that can be recruited, too. The goal of the turn-based combat is to keep your turf safe and also attack others.

"Empire of Sin is labor of love, a game I've wanted to make for 20 years," Romero Games game director Brenda Romero said in a statement. "If games are about wish fulfillment, anyone who's ever wished to run a criminal empire is in for a treat."

"We designed the game to put you right there in the thick of the action, at the very beginning of Prohibition. It goes without saying, but I'll say it--the Empire of Sin team can't wait to get this game into players' hands."

Empire of Sin currently has a 67 on Metacritic.
