Tropico is the land of opportunity: a blank slate where any political ideal or mad inspiration can be made possible. The debut of multiplayer in Tropico 5 means you can finally inflict all these ideas upon your friends – whatever they may be. Will you forge a socialist utopia built on the love and support of your fellow friends? Or stamp out your cohorts one-by-one and rise above the ashes of the competition to rule as the only Presidente of Tropico? There’s a brand new Multiplayer trailer for Tropico 5 available to view now, so get watching and start plotting how you will achieve democratic harmony or island domination.
Developer Haemimont Games will also be live streaming the game next week via Twitch.tv. Join us on Thursday 15th of May at 19:00GMT/20:00CET for a fullTropico 5 gameplay demo – just make sure you show your undying love for El Presidente and ask plenty of questions! Tune in here.
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 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!
Tropico 5 will be available for PC globally on 23rd of May (US retail 3rd June). Xbox 360 and Mac will be available this summer – with a version for the PlayStation 4 platform following in autumn.
