As a gang leader, players are tasked with expanding their organized crime syndicate. Set in the fictional metropolis of Sunlight City, players expand their influence by completing missions, and earn extra money by constructing housing and businesses.
The structures are also used to recruit and train gangsters. Trained thugs are thrown into gang wars against rivals and winners of these turn-based battles gain the losers territory. The game also features online fights, where players can form alliances or challenge other players in battle.
