El Presidente has given his seal of approval to a May 23rd release date for Kalypso Media’s Tropico 5 on PC, with Xbox360 and Mac versions coming this Summer and a PS4 version in the Autumn. Viva El Presidente!
To celebrate the announcement of a release date, El Presidente (with the help of Kalypso) has launched a brand new official website for the game, which can be found here. Make sure to check the official website often for all manner of Tropico 5 news and pictures, many of them provided by El Presidente himself.
Packed with a whole host of new gameplay features and all new artwork designed from scratch, Tropico 5 takes the series into a new and exciting direction – dynasties!
You, as El Presidente, will first take control of the infamous island of Tropico during early colonial times and then guide it through the centuries as the world changes and moves ever forward. You must tackle the changing needs of your people, as well as opposing governments and factions, and thus lay the foundations for your own dynasty. As you move through your years in office you can promote members of your extended family on the island to positions of power: such as ambassador, commanding general or even Supreme Ruler, to ensure your legacy thrives through the eras.
As well as a wealth of other new features, including advanced trading mechanics, technology, scientific research trees and island exploration, Tropico 5 will add cooperative and competitive multiplayer for up to four players for the first time in the series’ history! Viva El Presidente!
