Kalypso Media and Haemimont Games have released a short gameplay trailer, showing off the sorts of things you’ll be seeing in Tropico 5.
This particular minute-and-a-half trailer shows the island evolving over the course of 200 years, going from steamships in the 1850s to a shining city of skyscrapers in 2028. This era-based evolution is one of the big new changes for Tropico 5, with the other being the ability to create a dynasty of self-important family members. I suppose the addition of cooperative and competitive multiplayer is also a pretty big addition, actually. And the fact that there’ll be a public beta. And… oh, look, there’s a lot of stuff that’s quite new.
Watch the trailer below, and then – if you fancy it – sign up for the beta.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
