Kalypso Media Release Free Xbox 360® Content Update for Omerta - City of Gangsters 
‘Serious Business’ DLC Available to Download Now
Bracknell, UK, 2nd September 2013 – Kalypso Media is pleased to announce that a free Xbox 360 content update is now available to download for Omerta – City of Gangsters. The update, 'Serious Business', can be downloaded from the Xbox LIVE® online entertainment network for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

Atlantic City never sleeps. Success leads to envy….and your success has brought several new gangsters looking to grab their share of the infamous Boardwalk. Defend your criminal empire against new threats, face new challenges and make the city yours – again.

The free ‘Serious Business’ content update for Omerta – City of Gangsters provides you with two new maps for multiplayer and customisable sandbox game modes, along with several gameplay improvements and new features. This includes a rival gang in single-player, new difficulty settings, additional building options, car travel and balancing tweaks.
Omerta – City of Gangsters is a simulation game with tactical turn-based combat. Taking the role of a fresh-off-the-boat immigrant, with dreams of the big life, the player will work his way up the criminal hierarchy of 1920’s Atlantic City, New Jersey. Starting with small jobs, his character recruits a gang and expands his empire by taking territory from other gangsters. Eventually he establishes his own crime syndicate and becomes the de facto ruler of Atlantic City.

The player strategically manages his business and his minions in a real-time format, slowly but steadily increasing his influence over the city. The player sends his henchmen out on missions ranging from assassinating an informant, to raiding a warehouse, springing a friend from prison, robbing a bank or attacking a rival gang’s hideout. Nobody is above the law in Atlantic City, so it always helps to have a little cash handy to bribe a policeman or pay off a politician.

The turn-based combat in Omerta – City of Gangsters focuses on the tactical command of “The Boss” and his henchmen. Cover and stealth are essential parts of any shootout in the game. Finding the best vantage point to gun down an enemy, while taking cover from a hailstorm of bullets, can be just as satisfying as sneaking quietly behind a foe and taking him down.
