Pull political strings, expand your power & manipulate laws in Shadow Government
Kasedo Games and SomaSim have today announced that Shadow Government, the new expansion for City of Gangsters that brings the shady world of political corruption to the mafia management sim, is available to buy now on Steam.
With the ability to control city politicians and manipulate laws to your benefit, Shadow Government drastically changes City of Gangsters gameplay from just breaking laws, to directly influencing them on the biggest map yet - New York.
Prohibition showed how much power is accrued by politicians who pull the levers of government. Now you can imagine how much power you could have, if you in turn controlled those politicians.
With all new mechanics, finance successful election campaigns with your ill-gotten gains from your profitiable booze operations to ensure high turnout of voters who know exactly which ballots to cast. Just make sure you’re backing the right horses in the elections. Because if you lose, your opponents will remember.
Once the local city council members are your puppets, you can pull on their strings to get them to enact – or repeal – various city laws that can help your outfit or hurt your opponents.
The benefits of controlling political power will only increase as your grasp on the city council tightens. Who knows how far you’ll climb? Maybe one day you’ll even get to pick the mayor of the whole city.
Alongside the release of the ‘Shadow Government’ expansion comes five new outfit packs which add patriotic content to gangs of various nationalities; German, English, Italian, Polish and Irish.
New skills, operations, vehicles, missions, national colors/symbols and legacy goals are added in the different outfit packs to strengthen your national pride as you go about increasing your power across American cities.
City of Gangsters: Shadow Government and the various ‘Outfit Packs’ are available to buy now on Steam, priced at $7.99 / 7.99 € / £7.49 and $1.99 / 1.99 € / £1.79 respectively.
