El Presidente is back and extremely proud to reveal the second feature trailer for his highly anticipated city-builder; Tropico 5. In Tropico 5 you return to the remote island nation of Tropico and expand your dynasty’s reign from the early colonial period to beyond the 21st Century. You will be facing an all-new set of challenges, including advanced trading mechanics, technology and scientific research and FINALLY for the first time in Tropico history — cooperative and competitive multiplayer for up to 4 players.

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!
