Kalpyso and Haemimont have released a footage-driven trailer for Omerta – City Of Gangsters. What is presumably an offshoot of their most recent Tropico engine is actually looking pretty good for the big outdoor city stuff, but perhaps a little less shiny when it comes to dealing with the nitty-gritty of combat and gangster-hobbling – although it will probably please most of your to learn that the combat stuff is going to be turn-based, while the city-level management stuff is in real-time.
