Tropico 3: Absolute Power details
New Attractions Feature in Absolute Power to Bring in the Tourists, and the Money
Kalypso Media, a global publisher of award-winning PC and console games today released six new screenshots and more detailed information on their upcoming Tropico 3 PC expansion pack Absolute Power. Scheduled for release in May, Absolute Power invites players to return to the island paradise of Tropico and experience unprecedented power as the benevolent (or malevolent) ruler ‘El Presidente’ while enjoying a whole new series of adventures.
One of the many new features in Absolute Power includes the building of new tourist attractions allowing players to create new ways of attracting people to their tropical paradise. This will not only bring in that all important tourist money but create jobs for the locals and raise the local economy (or increase your Swiss bank account!).
For example, the new balloon ride attraction offers tourists a bird’s eye view of the beautiful sights of Tropico but alternatively, the balloon could also be used as advertising space for Hola-Cola or to spread El Presidente's propaganda. The huge ferris wheel is an entertainment icon for Tropicans and tourists alike and is another attraction available to build in Absolute Power. Building a ferris wheel increases the service quality of the island but be aware that Tropicans with below average courage or slob tourists dare not ride the ferris wheel so make sure you are attracting the right class of tourist. Complementing the zoo and museum, the ferris wheel introduces the idea of theme parks on the island of Tropico. The new marina is aimed at attracting wealthier tourists to Tropico. The Marina has several yachts available for hire and these can be upgraded to provide chartered fishing excursions which will increase the service quality for tourists, but will decrease the fishing resources for Tropicans who fish for a living. Remember you can’t please all of the people all of the time!
Tropico 3 Absolute Power is currently in development by Haemimont Games and will be available in May 2010. Absolute Power requires the full version of Tropico 3 to play.
