Coin Operated Games published a new trailer for Empyre: Lords of the Sea Gates earlier today, officially unveiling a bit more of the game’s story. Back in the late 1800’s, New York was becoming a “metropolis of the future,” a home to nearly five million people and the epicenter of many technological advancements. That all changed, however, after the “Great Flood of 1899.” Many evacuated. Those who were left took to anarchy, leaving the government without any control. Later, city states began to form around the city, offering a bit more structure. Not all remained well, however, as 1911 brought with it a new problem: all sources of fresh water have begun to run dry. Thus, the small city state that you are a part of, “Grand Tower,” takes it upon itself to find a new source of fresh water.
You can find the full story trailer embedded below. Empyre: Lords of the Sea Gates is set to launch on Steam on October 4th. You can find more information about the game on the official website.
