Tropico 5 coming next year
Strategy series returns with new features in 2014
Kalypso Media has confirmed that Tropico 5, the next installment of the city-builder series, is currently in development at Haemimont Studios and is slated for a 2014 release.
As El Presidente, players will take control of the infamous island of Tropico during early colonial times and then guide it through the centuries. 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.
The game will also add cooperative and competitive multiplayer for up to four players for the first time in the series' history.
Tropico 5 will be released on the Xbox 360, Windows PC, Mac and Linux in 2014.
