This month’s huge cover feature delves into the seedy criminal underworld of Prohibition-era Chicago. Brenda and John Romero’s latest game, Empire of Sin, is XCOM with Al Capone, challenging you to take over the city street-by-street and take down your enemies in tactical turn-based battles. We’ve been hands-on, grilled the Romeros, and blown up a lot of speakeasies in the process.
We’ve also uncovered behind-the-scenes secrets of the creation of classic, genre-defining immersive sim System Shock 2. The game’s director Jonathan Chey reveals stories of how a scrappy team of inexperienced young devs pulled together a modern classic.
And you can check out our verdict on Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord. Should you pick it up now that it’s in Early Access? Has it been worth the six year wait? We’ve got the lowdown inside.
All that, plus more features, hands-on previews, the month’s hottest reviews, expert hardware guides, interviews, and all of the regulars you love.
