Tycoon City: New York Goes Gold

Atari announced today that Tycoon City New York, the PC game that challenges players to build the business empire of their dreams and “make it big” in Manhattan, has gone gold and is on schedule for release across Europe on February 24. In Tycoon City New York, players aim to become moguls by constructing and customising hundreds of businesses anywhere and any way they want in a bustling and realistic simulation of New York City. Players must create and improve their businesses to outclass the competition and become rich and famous in New York City.

New York City is recreated in highly detailed 3D and features such famous landmarks as the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, and Times Square. Over two dozen in-game partners, including TIME Magazine, Toys’R’Us, Virgin Megastore, Staples, Olympus, Marquee, Nokia, Tag Heuer, and D’Agostino’s, to name a few, lend the game added realism. As a result of the partnership with TIME Magazine, players that reach the top of their game will see their likeness promoted on virtual TIME Magazine billboards throughout the city.

These days, property is the hottest game to get into, and Tycoon City New York offers everyone a chance to test their skills – with no mortgage brokers getting in the way!” said Bill Carroll, producer, Atari, Inc. “With over two dozen in-game partners, world-renowned landmarks and true-to-life neighbourhoods, Tycoon City New York puts players in the thick of the action in the world’s most exciting city.

In Tycoon City New York, players start from humble beginnings as a budding entrepreneur and build a Manhattan empire by creating, upgrading, and customising more than 100 types of major businesses based on the needs of real New Yorkers in the game. Challenges include running a nightclub, owning a hot new restaurant chain, and opening a Broadway theatre. High-profile industries, real-world brands, and a bustling round-the-clock lifestyle give every player the chance to make it. All of these challenges take place in authentic New York neighbourhoods like the East Village, Chelsea and Greenwich Village.
