Tropico 5 – Box Art, Screenshots, & Press Release

El Presidente himself is proud to unveil the final box art for his forthcoming and highly anticipated tyrannical adventure in the city-builder Tropico 5. Featuring a beautiful portrait of the El Presidente Dynasty and an image of the glorious island nation of Tropico, loyal citizens can now view the artwork for both the PC version and Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

In addition, there are also brand new screenshots to download and view. They demonstrate accurately the mesmerising natural beauty of the island of Tropico; as well as it’s incredibly advanced and enviable building architecture.

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, Xbox 360, Mac and Linux in early summer – with a version for the PlayStation 4 platform following later this year. Sign up to the Beta test here.
