Tropico 5 (Multi) – Screenshots, Release Dates, & Details

Haemimont Games & Kalypso Media have announced release dates for Tropico 5, the latest entry in the Caribbean island/dictator simulation game. The PC version of Tropico 5 will be releasing globally on May 23rd (except for the U.S. retail version which is set for release on May 27th). Xbox 360 & Mac OS X will get their versions sometime this Summer, while he PlayStation 4 version will arrive this Fall. A Linux/SteamOS version is in the works as well, but no release date has been mentioned thus far other than a possible release alongside the so-called “Steam Box” (likely they’re referring to a version of the hardware to be released by Valve).

In this new Tropico title, you’ll be starting off on your island in the early colonial period and must lead through many years and deal with changes that occur to your island.  Your goal in Tropico 5 is to establish a dynasty and to do so you must deal with the various needs & wants of your people and deal with the game’s governments & factions just like in previous Tropico titles. In Tropico 5 you’ll be able to insert your family members to powerful positions in your island’s political hierarchy. These include the positions of: ambassador, commanding general, or Supreme Ruler.

Tropico 5 will also have a more advanced trading system, new technology & science trees and the ability to explore the island. The game will also feature co-op and competitive multiplayer for up to 4 players, a first for the series.

Caesar in Gaul is the first campaign expansion for ROME II, and brings Caesar’s Gallic war to life in thrilling detail. Offering a tighter scope in terms of time and geography than ROME II, the Caesar in Gaul campaign map offers an expanded, more detailed vision of Gaul and the south coast of Britannia.

Players can choose from four playable factions in this conflict: the Gallic Arverni, the Germanic Suebi, the Belgic Nervii and Rome; in a campaign inspired by Caesar’s Commentarii de bello Gallico (Commentaries on the Gallic war).

“We’ve released a number of DLC packs and free content updates for ROME II, but this is our most substantial so far”, said Mike Simpson, Creative Director of the Total War series. “We’ve always planned to focus more closely on some of the key conflicts of the ancient world, and Caesar’s war in Gaul is the ideal place to start.
“We’ve also improved the game considerably since launch, and that process continues as we move onto substantial feature and gameplay improvements”.

Caesar in Gaul will be available to purchase and download on December 12th 2013 for $14.99/£9.99/€14.99.

Caesar in Gaul brings a number of new features to ROME II:

New campaign map: The expanded map of Gaul and southern Britannia brings 18 provinces to conquer, fully detailed with resources, settlements, capitals, and new environmental effects.
Greater focus on characters: Play through the campaign with faction-leading avatars such as Caesar and Vercingetorix.
24 turns per year & seasons: A shorter campaign timespan (58-51BC) means each in-game year is split into more turns. As the calendar changes, so do the seasons, bringing seasonal gameplay effects and stunning visual alterations.
New mid-game challenge mechanics: Caesar in Gaul replaces ROME II’s civil war with different, conflict-appropriate mechanics. As barbarian players progress, they’ll begin to feel the mailed fist of Rome as heavy intervention forces are sent to Gaul. Likewise, Roman players will see the tribes rebelling and forming alliances.
Compact, focused multiplayer campaign: With a tighter geographic scope and faction-roster, 2-player campaigns are more focused and less time-consuming than the full ROME II campaign.
New historical battle: Surrounded and outnumbered, take on the role of Caesar as he fights the last desperate, decisive engagement of the Gallic War: the battle of Alesia.
New Total War: ROME II playable factions: Alongside the factions playable in Caesar in Gaul, several playable factions are also unlocked in the full ROME II campaign: the Nervii, the Boii and the Galatians.
New units: A raft of new battlefield units is unlocked for the Boii, the Galatians, the Nervii and the Gallic tribes, plus new auxiliary and mercenary units.
