Romero Games' Empire of Sin receives early PC system requirements

Empire of Sin is set to arrive on all major gaming platforms in early 2020, placing gamers in the criminal underworld of 1920's Prohibition-era Chicago while tasking them to build an empire of organised crime as one of 14 unique bosses. 

The game will release on Windows PC, MacOS, PS4, Xbox One and Switch, tasking players to expand their territory and generate income while building a team of loyal mobsters. 

While the game isn't currently available for pre-order, Paradox Interactive has released Empire of Sin's PC system requirements, confirming that the title will run on most gaming PCs, recommended a DirectX 11 graphics card that's on par with Nvidia's GTX 750 Ti or AMD HD 5870. The HD 5870 released back in 2009, making this game's system requirements far from cutting edge. 

     Set in the golden years (1920s Chicago), the game [Empire of Sin] has players build their own ruthless criminal empire as one of 14 distinct bosses vying to run the seedy underworld of organized crime in the city. With randomly generated starting conditions, players will have to adapt to survive and do whatever it takes to outsmart, out-gun and outlast their opponents.

Empire of Sin will be coming to PC, Mac Switch, Xbox and PlayStation consoles in 2020.

With Nintendo's Switch hardware in mind, it makes sense that Empire of Sin would be able to run on such relatively low-end PC hardware. This is good news for Paradox, as this will allow practically all PC gamers to run Empire of Sin, maximising the company's potential playerbase. 

The compromise here is that Empire of Sin's graphics are expected to be far from cutting-edge, but that doesn't mean that the game won't look good on PC, especially when running at high resolutions.
