Coin Operated Games launched a new trailer to celebrate the release of their isometric RPG, Empyre: Lords of the Sea Gates, available now on PC-via Steam.

Empyre: Lords of the Sea Gates is set in an alternate history New York circa 1911. The city is in crisis as there is no clean water to drink after suffering from a huge flood. Evidently, the government is no help and collapses so anarchy begins to overrun the streets as the citizens do whatever they have to to get the water they require.

After a while groups formed smaller cities and ruled the citizens with some type of authority over them. However, these smaller cities were created by pirates and mafia families, which brought violence to anyone who defied their practices.

The game features RPG combat where players will move and chose actions for their entire party during “Planning Mode”. The player will need to utilize strategy in order to execute a successful attack. After, the game switches to “Action Mode”, where each character will unleash their action all at once for fast streamined combat. The game’s story will have the player in search of a solution for the water crisis.

“We are beyond thrilled to be sharing Empyre: Lords of the Sea Gates with gamers from around the world,” said John Randall, Creative Director of Empyre. “We strove to keep our games setting and themes recognizable but unique so that we could really let the story from our fantastic writer, Paul Noth, shine. We can’t wait for both old-school gamers looking to relive their 90’s RPG experiences and the next generation of gamers to get their hands on the game. We have so many more stories to tell in this alternate reality, this is just our first chapter!”

Empyre: Lords of the Sea Gates is penned by writer/comic artist Paul Noth, who has worked in the industry for many years with his works appearing on Cartoon Network and Adult Swim. Players will experience New York City as it is being divided into City States who are all trying to gain control of the city.
