Tropico 5 Gets Global Release Date
It won’t be long until you’ll be sitting on the island of Tropico as El Presidente as Kalypso Media have announced the release date for Tropico 5. The PC version launches globally on the same day, with console and Mac versions arriving later.
A reminder of what Tropico 5 is about:
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!
PC gamers can get their hands on Tropico 5 on May 23rd with a US retail release on May 27th. Xbox 360 and Mac versions will launch this summer and the PlayStation 4 will get it this Autumn.
