Urban Empire – BE A MAYOR PLAYER! Urban Empire is a ‘City Ruler’, pioneering a new breed of strategy game that combines city builder features with political scheming and adds profound social and historical events into the mix, creating a whole new gameplay experience where players must employ strategic planning and political savvy to successfully grow their cities in their role as Mayor. In Urban Empire you take control of a mayoral dynasty and lead your city and people through 200 years of history. Establish infrastructures, plan city districts, debate political decisions at the town council, bribe or blackmail your opponents, empower the democratic rights of your people or ignore them and reign supremely by yourself – the decision is yours! Beginning in the 1820s, establish your city through five different eras, each with its own threats and opportunities. Master the challenges of the centuries, face political struggles, experience world-changing events and pioneering inventions, and create your own unique Urban Empire!
Choose from 4 ruling families, each with 5 characters available, to lead your city to grandeur and prosperity in Urban Empire. To do that you'll need to keep an eye on the needs and wishes of your citizens as well as the political scheming of your opponents. Up to 800 dynamic events will bring the twists and turns of urban life to your door, and your decisions will shape the fate of your city.
Urban Empire will be presented for the first time at GDC in San Francisco, CA. The game is scheduled for release in 2016 on Windows PC.
