Publisher Paradox Interactive and developer Romero Games today announced Make it Count as the first premium expansion for prohibition-era criminal empire management game Empire of Sin. The expansion introduces new boss Meyer Lansky, also known as the "Mob's Accountant," but you shouldn't let his nickname fool you.
Although he is proficient at both economics and "smooth talking," it's also wise to never underestimate his gun-handling skills, unless you want an early ticket to the afterlife. Empire of Sin: Make It Count also adds a new profession – the Fixer. Once the expansion launches, you'll be able to recruit 5 new gangsters that have it and put their skills to good use.
Empire of Sin: Make It Count Release Date
Fixers can mediate conflicts between gangsters and also unlock the new Loan Sharking racket that lets you blackmail other characters and factions. Loan Sharks operate out of existing storefronts, are not obvious to cops or passers-by, and get unique interiors. As mentioned before, unlocking it does require you to have a Fixer on staff.
Meyer Lansky himself has a "tremendous flair for Loan Sharking," according to Game Director Brenda Romero. These rackets let you loan money at highly competitive rates. The more you invest the more you can make. Some people will, inevitably, underestimate how much they can pay back and you get to decide how you deal with them. A string of missions will also delve deeper into Lansky and the Fixers' story.
Empire of Sin's free Precinct update, which was detailed earlier this week, adds a new layer of empire management, letting you paint the map in your color, and will also see the first phase of mod support implemented.
Empire of Sin: Make It Count launches later in 2021 on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch.
