Urban Empire Summary
Whether you've an avid fan of the more recent city building sims like SimCity or Cities: Skylines or more into SimCity 2000 and Populus, you've never really had to employ much strategy. Working as more an exercise in creative freedom, Kalypso Media have decided to bring a little more tactical planning to the genre with Urban Empire.
The upcoming Urban Empire, at first glance, looks like another take on the city building genre so totally dominated by the SimCity franchise and the recent Cities: Skylines. But Urban Empire takes an entirely different approach to civic management, casting you not as a godlike builder, but a politician guiding the city’s development and jockeying for reelection.
Kalypso has announced a new city building simulator, although this one has a twist. Urban Empire focuses as much on the political aspects of running a city as the strategic planning, over the course of 200 years.
