Kalypso slaps May 23 release date on Tropico 5

Posted on April 2, 2014 AT 07:41am

Kalypso media has placed a May 23 worldwide release date on its city-building game Tropico 5.

Previously the developer had only offered a vague “early summer” window. The Mac and Xbox 360 versions still share that window, with a PlayStation 4 version due out this fall. Kalypso also stated that it is working on a Steam OS version of the game for Steam Machines.

Tropico 5 features new trading mechanics, technology, scientific research trees, and island exploration, as well as cooperative and competitive multiplayer for up to four players—a first for the series.
