Tropico 5 patched, gets new sandbox maps

Tropico 5

Dictate-’em-up Tropico 5 has been patched up to version 1.03, bringing with it a few bug fixes and some new content.

Said new content is a trio of new sandbox maps – Isla de Tucan, Dos Rios, and Santa Teresa – as well as six new costumes for Dynasty members. You can dress the ladies up in Angel, Devil, and Steampunk costumes, while the men have their wardrobes expanded with Steampunk, Napoleon, and Uncle Pedro. Kalypso are keen to note that future updates will include yet more free content, so keep your eyes peeled.

TheĀ Tropico 5 bugfixes don’t appear to be anything particularly major, offering a few minor fixes to building performance, features not working quite right, and multiplayer. You can read the full changelog below.

  • Added 3 new maps: Isla de Tucan, Dos Rios, Santa Teresa

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 things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really 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.
