Hello Gangsters!

We are so grateful for the feedback we have received from you, and we are already hard at work actively crushing bugs, improving game mechanics, and overall balancing to make Empire of Sin the game you want it to be. We have a couple of great things brewing.

Following on from the recently released console patch, our next release is a big patch coming early in Q1 2021. Internally labelled as 1.03, this patch will focus on improving combat and mission-related issues based on the feedback we have received from our community.

In addition, the mission team has been working through the issues that you raised, and these fixes and improvements will be in the same patch.

We will also be working closely with our newly-formed Community Council (aka The Family) to introduce new features and improvements, and we look forward to their feedback as we work to expand all you can do in Empire of Sin.

You are core to Empire of Sin, and we look forward to your continued feedback!

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and the best of luck.

This message is the best Christmas gift many of us who want to love this game needed to hear.

If you are looking for volunteers to join 'The Family' and are seeking individuals who are emotionally involved in this process and want you to succeed, who are VERY well educated in Organized Criminal History throughout the 20th Century in America, who have a background writing dialogue and scripts for computer games requiring one to understand the difference between a game being Fun vs a Historical Simulation, and who has a vested interest in helping you fix what he believes might be the best game of next year - please feel free to PM me.

This is exactly the message you need to send to your players and fans. Thank you.

I do look forward to seeing how you improve the game and build on the solid foundation you have in place. As I - and many others - have pointed out over and over, you have the infrastructure in place to create a great game. With a little polish to the combat - and a focus on adding true strategic choices (not just kill boss = get everything they own/rinse/repeat/win), this could be one of the best tactical/strategic games on Steam.

Finally - I sincerely hope none of this work is being done right now during the holidays. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

Thanks. Was in limbo wasn't sure. I brought the special addition based off Paradoxs name only.

Game has potential but its too bland and buggy. Look forward to the game getting better.

I've been having (and still am) lots of fun with it. 40 hrs in I think I've only just worked out what I'm supposed to be doing. Each game rolls differently which provides new ways of looking at it. I'm not going to repeat old criticisms that you're now well aware of but thanks for the update and enjoy your festivities.

Thanks for the update, today the game became unplayable for me (a bug too many) so I'll be putting it on hold until this patch is rolled out. Shame because I was having some fun with it. And I do think this game has a lot of potential. Hoping to see the

As was the case with sm0ka47 I too bought the special edition because of paradox backing it. I'm sure there'll be others too, if not for this publisher I would probably flown under my radar...

Good luck fixing and improving the game. Please take your time to do it right (already looking forward to it) and enjoy the holidays. :)

The game is a disaster. It basically released in early access form under the guise of a complete game. I hope that Paradox listens to the "community council" and have some sense towards historical immersion instead of being woke

I disagree the game is a disaster.

I do agree the game needs to decide a flavor, historical or Woke. The flip flop on this one, thrown in with the absolute travesty that is "gangster X randomly falls in love with Gangster Y after close association" is just cheap and lazy.

Because why wouldn't a thirty-something year old virile Black veteran whose backstory is he is adored by woman of all types on multiple continents fall in love with a sixty five year old British pensioner doing one last caper before retirement?

I finally found time to play this recently.

The autosave is behaving somewhat irrational and there are no options to control when the game autosaves.
My guess would be that autosaves are only created when you are using the mission system?!
So you have to make regular saves yourself.

That alone would not be too tragic, however paired with rather frequent freezes that require you to exit the game via taskmanager this becomes a problem.
The main reason for the game freezing seems to be that while you initiate combat something else happens at the same time like an assault on one of your properties.
The game wants to jump to the assault but can't since you are in the process of starting combat already.

Gameplay wise what bugs me most is that once you are dragged into a mob war you have this constant cycle of enemies attacking you in multiple places at the same time so you spend the next 30 minutes fighting without any chance to do something else.
The only way out of this hell is to pause the game instantly once you get a second between fights, then you painstakingly have to find the enemies safehouse, travel there and hope that you can assault it before the next attack on one of your properties occurs.

But I would say that is realistic of the situation. They'd most likely hit several places at once, so as not to give you a chance to prepare for their "next" hit. War is a bitch, it plays havoc with your plans.

You can literally watch the Mooks walking down the street forming hit teams heading toward your establishment when a war begins. It is not a surprise attack. Transport your shooter team to the target building, use the guards as cannon fodder and hit them before they you. Repeat as needed.
