Omerta: City of Gangsters, a 1930s mafia simulation with ruthless tactical turn-based combat and wonderful era-appropriate score, is available now 50% off, for only $19.99 with the DLC included free. This offer ends on April 8 at 10:59 PM GMT.

Omerta: City of Gangsters is an atmospheric game, a game where you battle it out tactically and strategically as you attempt to wrest control of the city from the other mafioso. It's a game that is more than the sum of its parts, and here's our top 6 reasons why you should check it out:

1. The atmosphere. The atmosphere of early 1920s, brutal gangsters' world, and brilliant soundtrack should appeal to all the fans of the era so rarely depicted in video games.

2. Visual presentation. Graphics, art style, pictures, portraits, maps, and the city all look great. And you do not need a high-end machine to play it.

3. Fast-paced combat. As Tim Stone fromPC Gamer wrote: "Shotgun blasts shatter furniture and send clustered foes reeling. Molotov cocktails loop through windows. Hoodlums lean from cover cradling chattering Tommy guns."

4. Engaging Story mode. The campaign has a very well driven story with some twists and turns, interesting characters (with two additional henchmen from the DLCs), and wonderful cutscenes.

5. Better than Ever. The game has been patched already and a big update with new maps, more customization options, and additional "Iron Man" difficulty was promised by Kalypso.

6. Free DLC. It's now $19.99 and with two DLCs: The Bulgarian Colossus and The Con Artist for FREE for everyone who has purchased the game.

Sold? Great, then get Omerta: City of Gangsters right now for $19.99 and get all the available DLC packs free.

All of you who have purchased Omerta: City of Gangsters from GOG.com will be able to get The Con Artist DLC for free. Just add it to your cart for $0.00 and check out! If you have purchased this DLC separately, please contact our support and you will get a code good for any $5.99 game for free.
Wow, this was out of nowhere. Is it worth it at 50% off? I heard it had a lot of problems.

Oh?

Edit: Perhaps they want to encourage people to get for better reviews? We have until April 8th, I might pick it up if the comments aren't all terrible.

Double edit: So does that mean that if new games are added... they will only exclusively be added X years after all of the DLCs are released. That would not be too great.

Definitely a nice gesture, and rather surprising.

Has GOG ever announced a promo or deal at this time of day before?

Is it just me, or is this an odd time for a promo to show up?
Ok, that's surprising. But I think it's a nice move to include the DLC in the base game now and even refund the people who already bought it (even if I bet that it weren't many). Thumbs up for that, GOG!

I might pick the game up for that price.

It's just you.

Licurg: It's just you.
I knew it!
And no single fu-post was given that day.

Edit: Damn it, just posted and eight comments were posted already lol.

Still high with a 50% and the reviews doesn't help in the littlest. On the other side, the paid DLC it's now "free".

I don't know man, I don't know. I'm not into it but I guess I should say: Thank you, GoG (?).

Anyhow, I just read this:

All of you who have purchased Omerta: City of Gangsters from GOG.com will be able to get The Con Artist DLC for free. Just add it to your cart for $0.00 and check out! If you have purchased this DLC separately, please contact our support and you will get a code good for any $5.99 game for free.

Jokes aside and just out of curiosity, how many people redeemed for the DLC already? I know that this is a bit of self-guessing but I won't expect so many people buying/redeeming it. But even, people who did might redeem for the shake of common sense. One full game can't NEVER EVER be compared to an awful and lacking content DLC. So I'm just guessing redeems will skyrocketing like if it was the end of the world.

Ok, gonna shut up now. No more drunk posts.

Is this an about face in light of the DLC backlash and poor sales? Or is this just another example of how, as far as publishers are concerned, games lose their value practically overnight? No sense in reading too much into this given how the average game released a month ago will probably be half price somewhere right about now.

Actually, I watched a youtube video on it, and it really didn't seem that bad, combat looked nice. I think the lack of a sandbox mode, combined with the fact that it came with GOG's first ever DRM, is the reason for all the bad reviews.

I don't think that is entirely what's up. I saw a post on the Steam forums when I checked for opinions right now where an Omerta dev/rep said they were fixing the game up, including more maps for MP and an AI for Sandbox mode that was in response to the backlash.

This might just be a marketing push for the new update, which was said to be due soon at the latest.

It has a sandbox mode. It just apparently doesn't have any opposition.

Ummmm... How about no thank you.

You ever have a food you've loathed, but never tried and someone finally talks you into it and you take a bite, "OMFZG I can't believe it's so good!... *tears*" Yeah, well me neither and this probably isn't it.

Aside from one other deal, this is the first time ive seen this game discounted, pretty good discount as well. DLC included :).
