Urban Empire takes players into the role of mayor. Starting in the 1820s, this strategy game takes city-planning and political machinations into a long-term endeavor. Touting as a “City Ruler” type of strategy game, Urban Empire takes some of the best parts from its would-be contemporaries like technological and cultural revolutions. It’s framed in a way where players can make choices as people holding an office that have a wide range of somewhat relate-able consequences in the city, its morals, and its safety.
See the launch trailer for Urban Empire below. Urban Empire is out now for PC via Steam, with a retail edition heading out on January 24.
