The Cold War has gotten hotter, and mutually assured nuclear destruction is just around the corner…or is it? In the new Tropico 4 ‘Apocalypse’ DLC, it’ll be up to players to prepare their island nations, and their Tropican citizens, for the end. The new DLC, priced at £3.49/€3.99 on the Xbox 360, gives players the tools they need to protect their island nations from the nuclear threat – protective shelters, a new survivalist trait (helps with scavenging food) and more.
New building: Nuclear Shelter (provides bonuses depending on work mode)
New trait: Survivalist (Tropicans need less food)
New outfit: Hazmat suit
New mission: How I learned to love the bomb – Survive a doomsday scenario
Kalypso Media has announced today that Tropico 5, the next installment of the Tropico city-builder series, is currently in development at Haemimont Studios and is slated for a 2014 release on the Xbox 360. No word about Xbox One though!
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 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.
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!
Did you start your little island paradise and then forget all about your Tropicans? Did you forget about them, leaving them to starve? Shame on you. Lucky for us then Kalypso Media UK have today released another trailer for Tropico 4 Gold reminding us just what it means to be El Presidente.
