Absolute Power, the expansion for island dictator-sim Tropico 3 has been temporarily removed from Steam due to a “complex” problem with the release.

The Steam version of the expansion was released on Friday, but quickly withdrawn as players reported a multitude of texture issues and missing buildings.

A forum post by a Kalypso Media representative states “We are aware that for some reason, the Steam version of Tropico 3 Absolute Power does not work properly at the moment.”It continues, “What appeared to be a minor problem that could be solved within a few minutes turned out to be more complex than expected. Please stay tuned for more.”

The troubled release initially caused some problems for the original Tropico 3 too. Players reported that voices for the radio announcer and El Presidente had gone missing, but a 100mb patch distributed today appears to have fixed this issue.

We’ve contacted Kalypso for any news of when the Steam version of Absolute Power will be returning.UPDATE: It appears to be back, at least on Steam in the US. Kalypso say: “Issue resolved. Tropico 3 Absolute Power is now available again.”
