El Presidente is returning as Kalypso Media announce Tropico 5 for PC and Xbox 360. This time they're marrying the original setting of colonial Tropico with the modern day of recent titles.
We'll rule Tropico through dynasties from the 19th century into the 21st. Each member of El Presidente's family is present on the island with research, trade and politics vital.
As this new Tropico will be taking us through the ages, from colony to superpower, Haemimont Studios has started from scratch with the visual look of the island nation builder.
Haemimont introduces both competitive and co-operative multiplayer for the first time for up to four El Presidentes. The studio is also introducing more advanced trading mechanics and letting us pursue scientific research to better our island empire. We'll also be exploring our humble Caribbean home where dangers lurk.
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 your influence and wealth grows, so do the threats to your burgeoning island superpower.
Can you survive both World Wars, prosper through the Great Depression, rule as an iron-fisted dictator through the Cold War and advance your country to modern times and beyond? From the 19th to the 21st century, each era carries its own challenges and opportunities.
Tropico 5 features:
• The Eras - From the 19th century to the 21st, each era carries its own
challenges and opportunities. Begin your reign during colonial times and
advance your nation through the modern era and into the future!
• The Dynasty – Each member of El Presidente’s extended family is present
on the island and may be appointed to key leadership positions, earning skills
and experience in their assigned roles.
• Research and Renovate - Advance your nation by discovering new
buildings, technologies and resources. Transform your old buildings into
modernized, hyper-efficient designs worthy of an economic superpower!
• Advanced trade system and trade fleet - Amass a global trade fleet and
use your ships to secure import/export trade routes to neighbouring islands
and key nations.
• Explore your island - Discover what lies beyond the fog of war. Send
prospectors to look for new mineral and ore deposits, but be wary of hostile
animals and native tribes.
• All new art - All artwork is reworked to provide Tropico 5 with a distinct
historic visual identity. Choose from over 100 unique buildings from each of
the individual eras.
• Cooperative and competitive multiplayer – Up to four players can build up
their own cities and economies on any given island map.
Tropico 5 releases on PC and Xbox 360 in 2014.
