We here at Marooners’ Rock are huge fans of the Tropico series. Much to our excitement, Kalypso Media has announced moments ago that Tropico 5 will be coming to the PlayStation4. My guess is that it’ll come to Xbox One as well. Honestly, this is great news, and Tropico 5 will be sure to be as great as Tropico 4, if not better. Of course we know El Presidente will be up to his old tactics, but you may be wondering what will be happening in this game. You can check out the video below and read below it for more information.
“We are delighted to be able to work with Sony to bring Tropico 5 to PlayStation®4 and enter the next generation market.” said Andrew Johnson, Managing Director, Kalypso Media UK. “The PlayStation®4 version of Tropico 5 will expand the Tropico brand to the new generation hardware and to a new generation of gamers.’
‘We have been evaluating many new and exciting development opportunities for the Tropico brand and by bringing Tropico 5 to PlayStation®4 we open a new chapter in the history of the game’ said Stefan Marcinek, Global Managing Director, Kalypso Media. ‘By taking full advantage of the PlayStation®4’s processing power the island of Tropico and El Presidente have never looked better.’
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!
