Tropico returnes after almost five years. Created by Limbic Entertainment, the sixth full-fledged installment of this popular cycle of economic strategies launches on PC today. It will be unlocked on Steam at 9 AM PST. Until then, there is still a 10% discount on pre-orders and the title can be purchased for $41.89 (regular version) or $44.99 (El Prez edition).
Like most installments of the Tropico cycle, The sixth part also enables us to take on the role of El Presidente of a banana republic somewhere in Latin America. Our task is to meet the basic needs of our citizens by building, among other things, bars, cinemas or flats, and to develop industry so that the homeland grows stronger. All this is given with a tongue-in-cheek attitude, which is characteristic of the series.
Tropico 6 offers, for the first time in the history of the cycle, an option to manage not one but an entire archipelago of islands. In order to make it easier for the inhabitants of our country to move around, we need to build such facilities as bridges, tunnels, and cable cars. Another interesting feature in the game is the ability to send spies to various corners of the world to steal plans of various technologies, including famous buildings such as the Eiffel Tower or the Statue of Liberty. Nothing will prevent us to build them on our territory later on.
